This training course aims to give trainees knowledge and understanding in lockout/tagout and allows trainees to view realistic scenes and be tested on their knowledge retention. A simple maintenance task can become a life-threatening activity when working on operational equipment. Isolation procedures, often called ‘Lockout/Tagout’, are designed to prevent equipment from activating during maintenance and servicing.

Upon successful completion of the course trainees will be issued with a certificate which will be valid for 5 years.

Note, A UKRS course standard is only endorsed when delivered by an appropriate instructor and accompanied by an accredited UKRS Certificate.

Why choose RT e-learning?

The use of interactive quizzes and simulation tasks, based on realistic scenarios from genuine workplace environments, means E-Learners can more readily acquire skills and knowledge meaningful to their own work-based practices.

E-Learning can accommodate many different learning styles and can engage the learner via a range of rich and stimulating approaches, which are more relevant to the subject requirements, than can often be achieved in normal classroom-based learning.
