Lock Out Tag Out Video
Lock Out Tag Out Video Description:
Lock-Out/Tag-Out Video uses environments which are familiar to
employees working with both electric and hydraulic/pneumatic equipment
and points out specifically where Lock-Out/Tag-Out procedures should be
applied. This 22-minute program was created specifically to assist
facilities in complying with the employee training requirements of
OSHA's "Lock-Out/Tag-Out" regulation, this Program discusses the OSHA
Lock-Out/Tag-Out Standard, including the Energy Control Plan.
The Videotape includes information on the regulation itself,
"energized" machinery, lock-out/tag-out concepts and procedures,
lock-out/tag-out devices, electrical systems, hydraulic and pneumatic
systems, and more. The Videotape Program comes with a comprehensive
Leader's Guide, reproducible Scheduling & Attendance Form, Employee
Quiz, Training Certificate and Training Log. This program is available
in video, dvd, cd-rom, and as part of an online training program via

Lock Out Tag Out Video Outline (Partial)
When you have to work on powered machinery or equipment you should remember your most important tool… Lock-Out/Tag-Out!
might think that you have all the facts, but are you familiar with your
facility’s “Energy Control Program”, and do you know answers to
When Lock-Out/Tag-Out is required?
Who is authorized to perform Lock-Out/Tag-Out?
Why does OSHA require Lock-Out/Tag-Out in the first place?
OSHA’s Lock-Out/Tag-Out Regulation exists because things can and do go wrong when any kind of “power” is involved.
If energy sources are not completely cut off, you could make contact with a live wire.
Or someone could inadvertently start a machine while you are working on it.
The only way to prevent these types of accidents is to follow proper Lock-Out/Tag-Out procedures.
That is why OSHA developed its “Control of Hazardous Energy” Standard.
The Standard establishes guidelines for workers to follow during setup, repair, and maintenance of machinery and equipment.
These procedures are often referred to as “Lock-Out/Tag-Out” (LO/TO)
A major part of the Lock-Out/Tag-Out Standard requires each facility to set up an Energy Control Plan.
Only workers who have been trained and authorized by management are permitted to implement Lock-Out/Tag-Out.
These employees have learned to recognize hazardous energy sources.
They must know the type and magnitude of the energy that exists in their work areas.
They must also be aware of the methods that can be used to control these energy sources.
matter how small the task, when you are working on powered equipment
you need to consult the Energy Control Plan to see if what you will be
doing requires Lock-Out/Tag-Out.
step in a Lock-Out/Tag-Out procedure insures that the machine you are
preparing to work on is energy free and can not be reactivated
Never take short cuts. The possibility of saving a little time is not worth the risk of causing a serious accident.
Before beginning Lock-Out/Tag-Out, you must let all “affected” personnel know what will be going on.
In addition, you need to alert any contractors working in the area
Once the appropriate people have been notified, you need to determine
As you know, the flow of energy from the power source to a machine is regulated by “Energy Control Devices”, such as:
It is at these points that Locks and Tags are installed to cut off power to the machine.
Some equipment even uses backup power systems such as “Uninterruptible Power Supplies” or Emergency Power Generators
These backup systems are set up so that in the event of a power outage, the equipment will not shut down.
In these situations, the backup power system must also be Locked and Tagged in order for a Lock-Out to be effective.
