Energy from electrical, mechanical, hydraulic, pneumatic, chemical, thermal, and other sources is vital to powering modern job sites and can present serious hazards to workers in many industries.
Control of Hazardous Energy (COHE) training courses introduces the dangers associated with hazardous energy as well as OSHA-mandated best practices for working in their presence. The course addresses Lockout/Tagout (LOTO) procedures, energy isolation, and more to help employees and employers stay safe on the job. This training course is designed to explain the requirements for the safe isolation of plant and equipment, or control of hazardous energy sources outlined in the American Standards OSHA 29 CFR 1910.147 and ANSI/ASSE Z244.1-2003.
The accidental release of energy during work can and commonly does cause severe amputations, injuries, and death. The purpose of this training course is to educate participants on standards, procedures, techniques, designs, and methods that protect personnel where injury can occur because of the unexpected release of hazardous energy. The unexpected release of hazardous energy can include any unintended motion, energisation, start-up, or release of stored energy, deliberate or otherwise, from the perspective of the person(s) at risk. In addition, to the Lock Out Tag Out (the primary method of hazardous energy control), the course will cover alternative methods of control based on risk assessment.
Upon successful completion of this course, the participants will be able to:
This training course will combine presentations with instructor-guided interactive discussions between participants relating to their interests. Practical exercises, video material and case studies aiming at stimulating these discussions and providing maximum benefit to the participants will support the formal presentation sessions. Above all, this will make extensive use of case examples and case studies of issues he has been personally involved in.
In addition to staff professional development, the organisation should be able to prioritise resources to demonstrate that energy risks are adequately controlled.
The participants will be able to gain or improve their knowledge and recognition of hazards, essential safeguards, and controls, including:
This training course is intended for all employers and employees who are required to adhere to COHE and LOTO standards as defined by OSHA, including:
The Energy Training Centre Certificate of Completion will be given to the participants who
attended and completed the training course.
