What tools should be used in a lockout tagout procedure?

Padlocks that are specially made for lockout tagout procedures are essential. They are made of materials that can withstand harsh environments, and they are also more easily recognizable as part of a lockout tagout procedure.

Other tools include other lockout tagout devices such as hasps, tags, circuit breaker locks, plug locks, cable locks, and more. Lock boxes and LOTO stations are tools that can help employees keep track of devices and strictly adhere to lockout tagout procedures.
