Description: This Simple LOTO Simulator was developed to provide employers of any size, with the safest and most cost-effective method to verify their employee’s understanding of the Energy Control Procedure, an integral piece of any Control of Hazardous Energy (lockout/tagout) Program. This Energy Control Procedure can be viewed on a digital screen and interacts as the user proceeds through the simulator. A checkmark will appear next to each step in the corresponding “Sequence of Lockout” and “Release from Lockout” as the participant completes that task. However, our objectives manager tracks each step and ensures each step is not only completed but that it is also done in the correct sequence, just like with a real energy control procedure.

Review: I thought this was a skills app to help me win the lotto, but it seems a LOTO is something else. Apparently, it is a ‘Lock Out, Tag Out’ safety procedure used in industry and research settings to ensure that dangerous machines are properly shut off and not able to be started up again prior to the completion of maintenance or repair work. This app while basic does kind of show you what do to. While I have no real use for it I still found it semi-interesting and learned a little bit. It’s free at least so if it sounds like something you would like to train in, maybe give this a go. Sure, it’s basic, but it’s not designed to be overly complicated.
