Each year, thousands of work accidents occur while repairing or servicing industrial equipment, the unexpected startup or release of stored energy can cause accidental injuries or even death. Most of those tragedies are due to energy sources that have not been isolated. These can be prevented through a complete Lockout Tagout program.
Lockout Tagout is the process of addressing and controlling hazardous energy which are potentially harmful to employees. It implies the placement of a lockout padlock on an energy-isolating device to ensure that the equipment being controlled cannot be operated until the lockout device is removed.
With almost 20 years of experience in manufacturing lockout solutions, Master Lock, in an effort to simplify the use of Lockout Tagout, innovates with versatile solutions that allow facilities to meet or surpass local standards LOTO requirements.
In this regard, Master Lock revolutionized pipeline maintenance when offering a unique solution for blind flange lockout applications. The device effectively locks out the blind flange by concealing and securing the flange bolts. It provides worker positive control over the blind and protection from accidental release of vapors, chemicals and other hazards until they remove their personal safety padlock when work is complete:
• 3 sizes available • Adjustable device to adapt to multiple flanged pipe applications • 4 locking holes allow for multiple workers to lockout device at one time • Durable aluminum and hardened steel construction withstands extreme conditions
Master Lock also offers innovative devices to effectively lockout electrical shut-off point such as universal mini-circuit breaker that can be applied horizontally or vertically to fit all applications without any tool or the adjustable lockout cable that can be applied on any valve or other mechanical machinery.
