Lockout/Tagout can save lives during machine maintenance and interventions in production facilities. 15-20% of workplace accidents can be avoided with Lockout/Tagout which is why the procedure should be part of any ambitious go for zero programme that bans accidents from the workplace.
Map Lockout/Tagout needs
Brady can send a specialised Lockout/Tagout Engineer to help survey customers’ sites, and to offer a comprehensive report on how they could implement Lockout/Tagout in line with worldwide best practices. The survey can include:
- identification of on-site machinery that could require Lockout/Tagout in order to prevent workplace accidents during machine interventions
- identification of every energy source control point on-site to be able to completely isolate machinery from all energy sources
- a list of recommended tools to isolate machinery on-site and realise best practice Lockout/Tagout procedures
Easily implement best practice procedures
Our Lockout/Tagout specialists can help customers write or edit Lockout/Tagout procedures to match worldwide best practices. Taking into account every machine’s energy control points and combining this knowledge with best-in-class Lockout/Tagout/Tryout steps to isolate machinery, results in quality Lockout/Tagout procedures to maximise safety during interventions. Lockout/Tagout procedures are uploaded in the LINK360 software for approval by customer stakeholders, for easy roll-out across multiple sites, and for easy editing in the future. Pictures of machinery and energy control points can be uploaded to maximise recognition and compliance in the workplace. Procedures can be printed or sent to maintenance professionals’ smartphones via the step-by-step Smart LoTo App.
