Lockout tagout (LOTO) is a critical safety protocol designed to prevent the accidental startup of machinery or equipment during maintenance and repair, ensuring worker safety in industrial settings. At 123 Safety Gear, we offer comprehensive solutions that adhere to stringent safety standards, providing everything from basic lockout devices to advanced systems tailored for specific machinery.

What Does Lockout/Tagout Mean?

Lockout tagout refers to specific practices and procedures to disable machinery or equipment, thereby preventing the release of hazardous energy while maintenance activities are performed. It involves placing a lockout device on an energy isolating device according to an established procedure, ensuring that the energy isolating device and the equipment being controlled cannot be operated until the lockout device is removed.

How To Use Lockout Tagout

Using a lockout tagout system involves several key steps:

  1. Prepare for shutdown: Identify the types of energy involved and notify all affected employees.
  2. Shut down the equipment: Turn off the equipment following the manufacturer’s instructions.
  3. Isolate energy sources: Disconnect or isolate the equipment from its energy sources.
  4. Lock and tag out: Apply lockout devices and tagout signs to alert others that maintenance is in progress.
  5. Verify isolation: Check that the equipment is properly isolated and de-energized by attempting to operate it.
