Lock Out/Tag Out

Lock Out/Tag Out

Electrical workers need to Lock Out/Tag Out (LOTO) equipment to perform maintenance and/or repair work. We all know how dangerous electricity is and so this course will help ensure electrical workers, apprentices, schedulers, supervisors, managers, WHS staff, etc, understand and are competent for their role in the LOTO process.

This electrical safety course is aligned with the Harmonised WHS Regulation, AS/NZS4836, and the Codes of Practice for “Managing The Risks of Plant in the Workplace” and “Managing Electrical Risks in the Workplace”.

The course comes with an assessment so that employers can be confident that trainees are ‘competent’ in the course content.

This course looks at the following topics and more:

  • Legal requirements and obligations
  • Why LOTO is important?
  • When is it needed?
  • Policy/procedures
  • LOTO Tools and equipment
  • Preparing for a LOTO event
  • Control or de-energise all energy sources
  • Verification issues
  • Bonding/shorting/earthing
  • Identifying the work area
  • Permits
  • Carrying out the work
  • Supply restoration
  • Out of service equipment
  • Locks/tags accidentally left on
  • Other


You have 10 days to complete this course online once you are enrolled but this can be extended if issues arise that prevent completion in that timeframe.
