Overview & Objectives
Energy from electrical, mechanical, hydraulic, pneumatic, chemical, thermal, and other sources is essential to powering modern job sites, but also has the potential to present serious hazards to workers in many industries. Control of Hazardous Energy (COHE): Awareness for General Industry 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 introductory online course explains OSHA standards and best practices for employee safety in environments where hazardous energy may be present. Course topics include:
- A review of the six basic groups of hazardous energy
- OSHA standards for isolation and control of hazardous energy
- 5 elements of effective LOTO practices
- Identification of hazardous energy control protocols via COHE/LOTO programs
After taking the course, students will be prepared to recognize sources of hazardous energy, their relative risks, and the steps needed to control and isolate these hazards.
Who Is This Course For?
Control of Hazardous Energy (COHE): Awareness for General Industry is intended for all employers and employees who are required to adhere to COHE and LOTO standards as defined by OSHA, including:
