Machine Guarding - Lockout Tagout Expert Presentation

With this slide deck, Michael Klein provided a Continuing Professional Education course on lockout tagout procedures.

Machine Guarding – Lockout Tagout

Lockout Tagout (LOTO) describes specific practices and procedures to safeguard employees from unexpected energy being released during the servicing of machinery and equipment, or the release of hazardous energy during service or maintenance activities.

This is accomplished by the placement of a lockout device ensuring that the energy isolating device and the equipment being controlled cannot be operated until the lockout device is removed.

Objectives for the course included:

  • Establish the requirements of Lockout/Tagout (LOTO) Program
  • Establish the individual roles within a LOTO Program
  • Types of hazardous energy
  • When should LOTO be applied
  • Energy isolation devices
  • How Do Injuries Occur During Machine Servicing?

Course attendees were instructed on the types of hazardous energy that are subject to LOTO, operations that are excluded from LOTO, and the roles of employees within the LOTO paradigm.
