Lockout / Tagout Safety Training Videos
Years ago, companies had training programs, but nothing like today. Worker comp hadn’t been invented just yet. Even back in those days, the owners of the companies used something called lockout. Didn’t have fancy tags or even very good locks, but maintenance people were supposed to lock out any electricity that was supporting machinery.
This program is designed to explain the basic procedures, some terminology used in the procedures, and general requirements. Control of hazardous energy sources is the new concept with new requirements for the previous lockout/tagout program.

The New Lockout/Tagout Program - One of the most effective devices for personal protection around moving machinery is a lockout and tagout program. When you hear the words lockout and tagout it means locking up the energy sources of a machine so it cannot be started. The tagout part of the term refers to placing a tag on a locked machine so everyone will be aware that a particular machine is under repair or maintenance.
For most people starting a new job can be confusing and even a bit stressful.
