Construction Lockout Tagout

Online Training Certification Course

29 CFR 1926.417

From the highest rated and most trusted online training company - since 2008.

This online training course covers hazard identification, avoidance, and control when working around energized machines and equipment. It also describes the applicable regulations and key safety practices for controlling worker exposure to hazardous energy in construction industry settings.

When working with machinery and equipment, an unexpected machine startup or release of stored energy can result in worker or bystander injury or death. The lockout/tagout (LOTO) safety procedures ensure that dangerous machines and circuits are properly de-energized (shut off) and are not able to be started up again until after the completion of maintenance or repair work.

This course is for:
This construction LOTO online training is designed for anyone who works on or near powered equipment or machinery. This safety training may help prevent serious injury in the workplace and save lives.

Case Study: The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) Fatality Assessment and Control Evaluation program investigated an incident in which a millwright was fatally injured because of an uncontrolled release of energy while he was repairing a debarker. The teeth on the debarker feed rolls had become worn, and the worker had been assigned to weld additional metal to build up the feed roll teeth. He had not made this type of repair before.

To safely de-energize this machine, six electrical sources and one pneumatic energy source needed to be disconnected and locked out. Also, the pressure in the air line that automatically controls the up and down motion of the feed rolls needed to be bled off. The victim disconnected and locked out two of the electrical sources, but he did not disconnect and lock out the other four electrical sources or the pneumatic energy source. He also did not bleed off the pressure in the air lines. In this condition, the machine's automatic control system remained energized. As the victim welded metal to the feed roll teeth, he leaned forward and placed his head between the feed rolls to reach areas that required more metal. The feed rolls automatically cycled and closed over his head.

Governing Regulations

The Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 created the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). OSHA, an agency of the U.S. Department of Labor, is charged with the enforcement of safety and health conditions of workers through the use of regulations published in the Code of Federal Regulations. OSHA standards are published in Title 29 of the Code of Federal Regulations. Part 1926 is designated for construction industry standards, while general industry standards are found in Part 1910.

The regulations covered in this online certification course are found in OSHA 29 CFR 1926.417, Construction Lockout Tagging of Circuits, as well as relevant topics from OSHA 29 CFR 1910.147, the control of hazardous energy (lockout/tagout).

Additional course regulations can be found in the following sections of the Code of Federal Regulations:

  • 29 CFR 1910.147, The control of hazardous energy (lockout/tagout)
  • 29 CFR 1910.333, Selection and use of work practices (electrical)
  • 29 CFR 1926, Subpart K, Electrical
  • 29 CFR 1926.702, Requirements for equipment and tools (concrete and masonry construction)
  • 29 CFR 1926.961, Deenergizing lines and equipment for employee protection

It will take a MINIMUM of 1.5 hours to complete this online course. The student may log on and off as needed. A bookmark will be set so when they log back in they will return to where they left off.

We have no restrictions on how long a person takes to complete a course. Likewise, if you are purchasing for others, we have no time limit on assigning courses. So you can purchase a larger quantity than you currently need and take advantage of volume discounts.

Employers are responsible for training new personnel before assigning them to tasks that may expose them to hazardous energy.

To ensure compliance with construction lockout tagout standards, safety training must be conducted as needed. This lockout tagout course meets these training requirements.

Each student will receive 0.2 CEUs (or 2 CMEs) from Compliance Training Online® for completing this course.
