The Lockout/Tagout (OSHA #7115) course covers the role and responsibility of the employer to develop and implement an energy control program, or lock-out/tag-out (LOTO) for the protection of workers while performing servicing and maintenance activities on machinery and equipment. Course topics include types of hazardous energy, detecting hazardous conditions, implementing control measures as they relate to the control of hazardous energy, developing and implementing energy control programs including written isolation procedures, training of authorized and affected employees, and periodic inspection of energy control procedures using the OSHA Control of Hazardous Energy Standard. Upon course completion, the student will have the ability to explain the importance of energy control programs, procedures, training, audits and methods of controlling hazardous energy.
There are no prerequisites for this course.
Completion of an OSHA 30-hour general industry outreach training class. Participants should have a good understanding of the basics surrounding individual company energy sources, maintenance, repair, and machine operations. If an Energy Control Program already exists, participants should be familiar with all related policies.

TEEX and the OSHA Training Institute (OTI) have an attendance policy that requires all students to fully attend enrolled classes. In order for the student to receive a certificate of completion, they must attend the entire class. We realize that extenuating circumstances may arise that would take a student out of class and have implemented the following policy to handle those situations. Below are the responsibilities and expectations of students in a TEEX course.
- Students are expected to attend 100% of the course in which they are enrolled before a certificate of completion can be issued.
- If an extenuating circumstance arises in which a student is unable to attend 100% of class, the student must complete the Student Absentee Request form prior to leaving the classroom and submit it to the instructor for approval. If the extenuating circumstance arises during non-class hours, the student must complete the Student Absentee Request form immediately upon return to the classroom and submit it to the instructor for approval.
- With an approved absence for extenuating circumstances, if the absence is short enough, the instructor has discretion to provide options for make-up work if the classroom hours are equivalent.
- For all other absences, students must re-enroll through TEEX Registration to retake the course within six months.
