Many Employers do not realize that it is required to develop a "Specific" Energy Control Procedure for each piece of equipment that exposes employees to hazardous energy while cleaning, servicing, maintaining, adjusting, unjamming, or setting up Cal OSHA’s regulatory reference is CCR Title 8 Sections:

  • 3314. Cleaning, Repairing, Servicing and Adjusting Prime Movers, Machinery and Equipment

This training session will ensure that the students understand the potential for exposure and their liability and responsibility as it relates to the company's Lockout Tagout Program. Individuals who participate in this training will be given a comprehensive overview of the Standard, your written policies and procedures and how energized machines and equipment affect their daily activities.
