ENERGY CONTROL PROGRAM
This course provides a blueprint of basic requirements and key elements to help you establish a plant-wide energy control policy. This energy control policy aims to protecting people from injury due to accidental exposure to power sources, equipment, power lines, starting/moving of machines/equipment, and helps to ensure each worker has control of all energy sources, controls or isolating devices.
At the conclusion of this class, you will:
- Understand why "Energy Control" is important
- Understand employer/employee responsibilities
- Be able to identify energy sources such as; water, steam, gas, electrical, hydraulic, air, gravity, tension and pneumatic
- Understand types of energy, kinetic and Potential
- Be able to get started in drafting your local energy control requirements
- Employer responsibilities
- Establishing policies and practices
- Hazardous energy
- Energy sources
- Machinery and equipment requirements
- Types of energy control
- Employee training
Each participant will receive their own class binder with all reference material and exercises, so that these can be repeated later.
Each participant will have the opportunity to participate in group case studies.
