When working in a dangerous environment where the risk of exposure to hazardous energy is great, you must receive the relevant safety training to ensure that you arrive home alive.
The truth is that stored energy has the potential to cause catastrophic damage to property and fatalities, which is why lockout/tagout safety training should not be taken lightly.
To ensure that you and your employees are compliant with OHSA regulations and are equipped to mitigate risk factors when working with potentially dangerous machinery, it’s essential to enroll in a recognized training course.
With a comprehensive OSHA lockout tagout training course, we can help you prevent injuries, promote workplace safety, and prevent damage to equipment and surrounding structures.
