Lock out, tag out, isolate and access plant

RIIWSAM202E Isolate and access plant
MSMPER200 Work in accordance with an issued permit

Ensuring that plan undergoing maintenance or repair work is properly shutdown, isolated and with access restricted is a critical safety process, especially for those working within the energy sector. Locking out, tagging out and isolating plant allows this work to be conducted efficiently and safely, making it quicker for plant to be returned to service.

This course equips workers with the skills and knowledge they need to best incorporate lock out, tag out and isolation processes for plant and equipment into existing repair and maintenance procedures. These skills are aimed at mitigating the risks associated with sources of energy often found on work sites.

This course can be undertaken at our state-of-the-art training centres in Sydney, Dubbo or Melbourne. The HSE training team can also deliver this training at your work or job site through the use of our mobile simulation training trailers.

Hands on training with the experts

At HSE, we believe the best way to learn is by doing. Having theory is important, but death by PowerPoint-style lectures often result in poor learning outcomes. Having students be active participants improves their retention of information and helps create lived experience they can recall when out on site.

We have invested heavily in our three training centres to ensure they give our participants not just a sense of what they are likely to come across on the job site, but to make their training as close to the real thing as possible.

Be proactive in upskilling your team

Many companies and persons conducting a business or undertaking (PCBUs) sending their team for training are doing so after winning a tender for a larger than usual project. These projects often require workers to hold certificates demonstrating they have completed training and have been assessed as being competent in various skill sets.

While in many cases this may not be a problem – our team can help ensure your team are booked in for training with a short lead-time – in some cases delays in getting training completed can result in delays further down the line as work cannot be completed when scheduled.

HSE encourages PCBUs, managers and business owners to be proactive with their team’s upskilling and training. By ensuring your team have not just the skills they need now, but skills they may need in the near future, you can minimise the risk of being unable to access a site or undertake a job through not having undertaken the required training.

Our training team can also provide a wide scope of refresher courses. Many large construction companies and other contractors require that fundamental safety training be completed on a regular schedule. HSE’s experienced team can put together a comprehensive training plan for your team to ensure they are always refreshing their skills within commonly required timeframes.
