What Is A Lockout Padlock For?

The purpose of a lockout tagout safety padlock is to secure and lockout a particular machine or piece of equipment. It can also be used to secure an entire area during the maintenance and/or repair of certain machinery.

These padlocks prevent access to energy sources that provide power to machines. Unauthorized personnel will be unable to access these energy sources as long as lockout tagout padlocks are applied.
