Lockout / Tagout

Course Length: One half-day of training (4 hours)
A certificate will be issued upon successful completion of the course.

If machinery could unexpectedly activate or if the unexpected release of an energy source could cause injury, the energy source must be isolated and controlled. This is done through a lockout/tagout procedure. Upon the successful completion of the program, students will be qualified to develop a company-approved lockout/tagout procedure.

Lockout/tagout is one of three safe work procedures that Workplace Safety Legislation requires an employer to develop. Lockout/tagout systems are not only used when dealing with electricity, but also for hydraulic, pneumatic, steam and other systems. Employee training in your company’s lockout/tagout system is essential.

Prime Contractor Responsibilities

Course Length: One half-day of training (4 hours)
A certificate will be issued upon successful completion of the course.

***We recommend that you bring a current copy of the WSH Act & Regulation to highlight and reference information. A classroom copy will be provided for in class use only.***

Workplace Safety and Health Legislation requires a Prime Contractor to be designated on all construction projects where more than one employer or self-employed person(s) are involved in work on site at the same time. The Prime Contractor is granted overall responsibility to ensure compliance with WSH regulations at the work site.

Work site activities need to be coordinated so that the work of one employer does not create unsafe conditions for the workers of another employer on the site. CSAM’s Prime Contractor course will focus on providing companies with effective guidelines to assist them in fulfilling their responsibilities.

This course will examine a Prime Contractor’s legislated requirements and focus on developing practical methods to meet these requirements.
