SNEET provides Lock-Out/Tag-Out (LOTO) training that covers control of hazardous energy and safety training. Violation of the OSHA lockout tagout standard was one of the most cited in 2016. With stepped up enforcement, it may be time to examine your company’s procedures and training of employees. Don’t get an OSHA fine when a solution is available.

SNEET will train your employees and provide sample LOTO procedures, training materials and competency testing. A certificate of attendance will be presented at the completion of the training. An experienced electrical engineer will present the program.
