A lockout tagout kit is a collection of a variety of lockout tagout devices. A kit like this can include devices like padlocks, hasps, tags, circuit breaker lockouts, valve lockouts, and more. Typically, kits are meant to make LOTO devices more easily available for employees. They are designed to be portable and easy to take to different sites or spots around the workplace.
Different kits can come in different combinations of devices that are meant to serve particular purposes. For example, an electrical lockout tagout kit can include lockout devices like the following:
Lockout tagout kits can typically be used for a variety of procedures, though they can be designed to cater to procedures of a specific nature. You can keep a collection of different lockout devices in a kit, and you can keep the kit handy, so you’ll always have the devices you need nearby.
You can also use a lockout tagout kit to refill a lockout tagout station. Typically, kits will have the same devices included in LOTO stations but smaller quantities, making them more mobile.
Lockout tagout kits include the necessary supplies and devices for an effective lockout tagout procedure. To make sure that your workplace adheres to proper lockout tagout procedures, it’s important to make sure that employees have access to the proper lockout tagout devices.
Lockout tagout procedures typically involve locking out a variety of machines and equipment. Because these machines can vary significantly in nature, employees will need to use a variety of lockout tagout devices. These devices include the following:
Padlocks are perhaps the most versatile among lockout devices because they can be used with nearly any machine, combined with most other lockout tagout devices. They also have writeable labels that can bear the name of the employees that put them on a machine.
Sometimes, it’s possible to have multiple employees working on the same machine. Some devices can accommodate multiple locks, but some accommodate only a single lock or don’t accommodate enough locks. Hasps can accommodate multiple locks that belong to multiple employees.
Circuit Breaker Locks
Circuit breaker locks are designed to ensure electrical isolation. They allow employees to turn off electrical power from the circuit breaker and ensure that the power remains turned off until after all employees are done with their tasks.
Valve locks are made to isolate valve handles and make them inaccessible. These locks can work with gas valves, water valves, and the like. They are easy to use; simply clamp them over the handle then secure them with a padlock. Additionally, they can work for gate valves and ball valves.
While circuit breaker locks turn off electrical power from the circuit breaker, plug locks can prevent machines from getting plugged into electrical sockets. This ensures that these machines will not have any electricity and will therefore not be activated until the job is done.
Lockout tagout tags are designed to be easily visible, recognizable, and durable. They typically come with red and black print or green and black print. Additionally, they should be writable and are meant to display information about a specific lockout tagout procedure.
These cable locks are made to be versatile, adjustable, and durable. In situations where valves or panels are difficult to reach, cable locks can make proper lockout tagout possible.
Yes, but as is the case with any safety program, how the lockout tagout device is used is the often weak link. This lockout tagout kit has essential tools to keep you safe and compliant in circumstances requiring the control of potentially hazardous energy.
However, your internal safety program, training, and adherence to it will determine how well you comply with OSHA, your state regulatory body, or any non-government standard such as NFPA 70E.
Meanwhile, compliance has always been a top priority for TRADESAFE safety supplies. Our LOTO locks, which come in packs of 7 and 10, are an excellent illustration of this. Each comes keyed differently, with numbers engraved in both the padlock body and key for easy identification.
