How do you get training for lockout tagout?

OSHA 1910.147(c)(7)(i) requires employers to provide training to all authorized and concerned employees. OSHA has a FREE online Lockout-Tagout Interactive Training Program that offers relevant information about the Lockout/Tagout (LOTO) standard, which includes revised preamble/ standard, compliance directive, selected letters of interpretation and case law.

Other LOTO training courses are readily available online and may be performed remotely. These paid courses cover topics such as labeling systems, control processes, lockout regulations, as well as the different types of hazardous energy sources. Certificates of completion are provided once the course is completed. On the other hand, companies can also hire lockout/tagout training specialists to provide in-person training to all employees.
