Looking for industrial lockout equipment, such as Lockout tagout padlocks? Look no further than LockShop Direct.
Lockout tagout (LOTO) is a safety procedure used industrially to ensure that dangerous machines are turned off properly. It’s also considered to be a safe method of working on hazardous equipment and is mandatory in some countries.
Workers must announce shut off before identifying the energy source(s) and isolating them. Once they have done that, they need to lock and tag the energy sources using a lockout tagout padlock. The great thing about using one of these safety padlocks for the isolation point is that it alerts others not to de-isolate the device which, in turn, prevents accidental start-ups whilst it is in a hazardous state or a worker is still in direct contact with the machinery.
LOTO padlocks don’t just protect equipment in hazardous environments, they protect employees and maintenance workers too. You’ll notice that they come in an assortment of bright colours, e.g. red, yellow, blue, green, etc. This makes them more visible from a distance, acting as a safety measure in areas where inspection and maintenance work may be undertaken on a piece of machinery.
