Employee Training and Communication

Why must employees be trained?
  • So that employees acquire the knowledge and skills necessary for the safe application, usage and removal of the energy controls [29 CFR 1910.147(c)(7)(i)].
The standard requires different levels of training for the three categories of employees; what are the differences in the training required for the three categories?
  • Authorized employees must receive training on the recognition of applicable hazardous energy sources, the type and magnitude of the energy available in the workplace, and the methods and means necessary for energy isolation and control
    [29 CFR 1910.147(c)(7)(i)(A)].
  • Other employees (those whose work activities are or may be in an area where energy control procedures may be utilized) must be instructed about the procedure and about the prohibition relating to attempts to restart or reenergize machines or equipment that are locked out or tagged out [29 CFR 1910.147(c)(7)(i)(C)].
