This site specific course is based on the OSHA regulations as outlined in 29 CFR, Part 1910.147. OSHA requires that anyone who is involved in servicing or maintenance of energy systems such as electrical, mechanical, hydraulic, pneumatic, and others receive training. This course will help to satisfy the requirements for training as detailed in the OSHA regulation for those who are working in areas where Lockout programs are in place, or whose job requires them to actually do the Lockout and isolate the energy sources. Making this class site specific helps reduce your liability and increases your loss control efforts
