Description: According to OSHA, failure to control energy accounts for nearly 10 percent of the serious accidents in many industries. Water and wastewater operators are exposed daily to electrical components and are often required to have lockout/tagout programs in place. Participants in this course will be introduced to the components of 29 CFR 1910 Subpart S, Electrical Safe Work Practices and the lockout/tagout procedures outlined in 29 CFR 1910.147, Control of Hazardous Energy. Further focus will be on the safety hazards associated with working around electrical equipment and tools, with an overview of the main components of a lockout/tagout program.
