How do you use valve handle lockout tagout devices?

Gate valve locks are typically designed to be able to cover the entire handwheel of a gate valve. To use one of these locks, simply open it up and fit the two halves over a gate valve’s handwheel. Make sure that the handwheel is in the off position.

You will then have to secure the two halves together with a personal safety padlock. You will also have to attach a tag to warn and provide pertinent information to other employees.
