What is the lockout tagout method used in electrical work?

One lockout tagout method used in electrical work is locking out the circuit breakers. TRADESAFE provides a variety of circuit breaker lockout devices, with each variation designed for circuit breakers of different sizes.


It’s also possible to use plug locks to prevent machines from getting plugged in. Typically, plug locks are best used if employees need to de-energize some machines instead of an entire area in the facility. Plug locks are also secure and can lockout up to two plugs at a time.
