As companies prepare for a shutdown over Christmas and the festive season, safety lockout plays an important role in many workplaces across a host of industries.
WHY IMPLEMENT A LOCKOUT / TAGOUT PROGRAMME?
Implementing a LOTO (Lockout /Tagout) programme has an immediate impact on the whole organisation by:
– Reduce the number of injuries and fatalities
– Controls insurance and compensation fees
– Better use of machines which reduces downtime and improves productivity
– Strengthens workers skills and greater commitment from employees
WHAT IS LOCKOUT / TAGOUT?
LOTO is the process of controlling hazardous energy during the service and maintenance of machinery or equipment. It involves the placement of a lockout padlock, devices and tag on an energy-isolating devise, ensuring that the equipment being controlled cannot be operated until the lockout device is removed.
