According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), lock-out/tag-out is one of the Top 10 “”Most Serious Violations”” and “”Most Often Cited Violations”” in the workplace. Lock-out/tag-out must be taken seriously, because workers maintaining equipment can be seriously injured from the unexpected energization of, release of stored energy from, or startup of equipment.
Lock-out/tag-out procedures establish standards for the shutdown of equipment, so that energy sources can be isolated to prevent the release of potentially-hazardous energy during routine maintenance activities. Following proper lock-out/tag-out procedures helps workers to avoid preventable workplace accidents and injuries.
DAC Worldwide’s Lock-Out/Tag-Out Training System (811-000) features a realistic, simulated working process environment that facilitates introductory training with hands-on activities related to the process of identifying and locking out sources of dangerous potential energy in an industrial setting.
The training system includes two process tanks; a centrifugal pump; a complex, multi-purpose piping network; electrical controls; and a variety of lockable system components. A lock-out/tag-out kit that features a large number of commonly-encountered locking and tagging devices is also included
