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:
· Circuit breaker lockout devices
· Plug lockout devices
· LOTO supplies (tags and zip ties)
A lockout tagout kit should have an assortment of lockout tagout devices. These include safety padlocks with their keys, lockout tagout tags, and hasps. The contents of LOTO kits can vary depending on the type of machine they’re meant for. Some kits can include electrical lockout tagout devices, while others can include valve lockouts. The basic components, however, are safety padlocks, hasps, and tags.
Lockout tagout devices are made to prevent physical access to switches, handles, toggles, and any other mechanism that store potentially hazardous energy. These devices are utilized if the energy source or machine in question is due for maintenance or repairs. The locks will then prevent the accidental or inadvertent re-energizing of the machine, thus keeping maintenance or repair personnel safe from danger.
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 in smaller quantities, making them more mobile.
Lockout tagout kits include the supplies and devices that are necessary 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 greatly 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, in combination 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 either 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 make sure that the power remains turned off until after all employees are done with their tasks.
· Valve Locks
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.
· Plug Locks
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.
· Cable Locks
These cable locks are made to be versatile, adjustable, and durable. In situations in which valves or panels are difficult to reach, cable locks can make proper lockout tagout possible.
