Fast and secure implementation of lockout/tagout
17 February 2015
With the benefit of a lockout/tagout programme it is possible to prevent many maintenance related.
While lockout/tagout is successful, it requires a good deal of preparation to implement.
One of the biggest challenges in implementing lockout/tagout is writing machine-specific procedures that ensure the isolation of the complete energy supply to a specific machine. These procedures need to be complete and understandable and will require internal discussion, approval and communication to employees involved.
Brady engineers can help by coming to your workplace to write machine-specific procedure proposals for evaluation. They can also identify all energy supply points to make sure no energy can reach machines under maintenance.
Once machine-specific procedures have been written that ensure machine isolation from any energy supply, these procedures often follow an approval process by internal stakeholders.
Brady proposes the LINK360 software to easily introduce, approve or edit, scale and communicate lockout/tagout machine-specific procedures.
Using a tablet or Smartphone on site, energy point and machine pictures can be uploaded in LINK360 for use in the procedure communication, supporting maintenance personnel to quickly find energy points that need to be locked out. www.bradyeurope.com/lotoservices
