Isolation & Lock off Training Package
ARTICLE
Description

A training and assessment package was developed to assist Isolation Controllers with the implementation and understanding of the company’s “Isolation and Lock Off” guidance document.

The training package consists of a theory based presentation, along with practical demonstrations and simulations of the various faults which can occur. A simulation rig, which was built in-house, is used to illustrate the topics covered in the training. The final part of the training package consists of a written and practical assessment.

Benefits

• Awareness and understanding raised of the hazards, dangers and limitations
which are associated with Isolation, Lock off and Test & Try
• Individuals who required further training were identified
• Re-assessment of the candidates is possible as different faults can be simulated
• The rig has transformed the ability to train in a controlled environment
