Lockout Tagout systems make equipment physically accessible only to those people permitted to carry out work. These systems work with a Scafftag visual status tagging system to enhance information management and communication.
The strength of the Lockout Tagout system in the Scafftag range is that it prevents usage of unsafe equipment and it provides clear visual warning to people operating in any facility.
Lockout Tagout is a planned safety procedure which involves turning off the energy supply of industrial machinery and equipment whilst maintenance work or repairs are being carried out. This procedure alerts workers of harm and prohibits them from engaging with harmful equipment and protects workers from the risks posed by live machinery or electricity.
These hazards can come from a whole range of energy sources including electricity, pneumatics, steam, gas and liquids to name a few.
Scafftag provides a complete range of both physical lockout and visual tagout systems to provide a total management solution for all mechanical and electrical risks.
A lockout tagout system will significantly increase the safety of an organisation. Scafftag’s friendly customer service team are well equipped to answer any questions regarding their diverse range of lockout tagout products.
