Course Overview

Employees executing service or maintenance on machinery may be exposed to injuries from the unexpected energisation, start-up, or release of energy deposited in the equipment.

Contemporary machines today can contain many hazards to workers from electrical, mechanical, pneumatic, or hydraulic energy sources. Disengaging or making the equipment safe to work on comprises the removal of all energy sources and this process is known as ‘isolation’.

It is important for modern-day plants, large industrial installations, oil and gas plants, and offshore installations to implement systems of operation which are reliable, practical, and cost-effective. Therefore, this intensive training course focuses on providing workers with thorough procedures for isolating equipment using recommended techniques.

What are the different components of this “Energy Isolation: Plan, Procedure and Checklist” course? This program discusses the importance of regional legislative requirements, the best practice verses minimum requirements, ensuring safe working practices, electrical isolation and validated procedures, instrumentation system isolation, mechanical isolation, along with any common problems and solutions.

This Zoe training course will empower you with knowledge in the areas of energy isolation standards, the different types of energy sources, potential hazards, and step-by-step procedures for isolating equipment.
