01-ENG-16001 - Lock Out/Tag Out
Lockout/tagout is an important process to protect workers from hazardous energy.  Failure to control hazardous energy accounts for nearly 10 percent of the serious accidents in many industries.  Workers who are injured on the job due to exposure to hazardous energy lose an average of 24 workdays for recuperation.
The purpose of this course is to explain hazardous energy to workers, emphasizing the importance of lockout/tagout process.  Employees will learn the necessary steps to properly isolate equipment. Course length: 15 to 20 min
Students who take this course will be able to:
  • Define hazardous energy
  • Explain the harmful effects of hazardous energy
  • Describe the purpose of lockout/tagout
  • List the steps necessary to isolate equipment
01-ENG-16002-Confined Space
Working in confined spaces provides unique hazards to workers.  This course will help employees understand what a confined space is, as well as how to recognize confined space hazards.  It also defines permit-required confined spaces and describes the duties for the authorized entrant, attendant and entry supervisor for confined spaces.  The course alsoexplains safety best practices for working in these unique environments.  Course length: 15 to 20 min
Students who take this course will be able to:
  • Define confined spaces
  • Explain the hazards of confined spaces
  • Explain permit-required confined spaces
  • List safety practices for working in confined spaces
01-ENG-16003-Hazard Communication
This course covers hazard communication for chemical, biological, radiological and physical hazards. Through this course, employees will become aware of how chemical, biological, and radiological materials can enter the body and how to prevent contamination.  They will also learn the purpose of the Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) and safety data sheets (SDS).   In addition, this course contains photos and descriptions of hazard container labels.  Course length: 15 to 20 min
