Supplies FAQ

Employees can store their keys in the group lockout box and then secure them with their own personal padlock.
When recovering equipment after a lockout tagout, one of the first things to do is to make sure that any unnecessary materials have been removed from the machine or equipment and the surrounding area. Verify that no tools have been left in or on the machine and that they have all been accounted for.
A cable lock is a multi-purpose lockout device used when a padlock or other fixed device does not provide enough flexibility for proper lockout. It’s also ideal when there is a need to lockout multiple energy sources with one device or where other types of lockout tagout supplies cannot be securely attached to the energy.

Heavy-duty nylon cable ties are not suitable alternatives for substantial lockout supplies, such as locks and chains. According to OSHA 29 CFR 1910.147(c)(5)(i), energy isolating devices "shall be substantial enough to prevent removal without the use of excessive force or unusual techniques, such as with the use of bolt cutters or other metal cutting tools." 


Additionally, cable ties are not constructed in such a way that they require bolt cutters or other metal-cutting instruments to remove. Instead, they are generally removable by using standard cutting tools.

There are four main types of electrical lockout devices, each with its specific application:


Circuit Breaker or MCB (Miniature Circuit Breaker) Lockout Device – this lockout device uses a snap or clamp mechanism to lock circuit breakers in the OFF position. It is then secured with a suitable padlock to prevent unauthorized removal. 


Plug Lockout Device – this lockout device encloses the prong-end of a plug, making it impossible to be plugged into a power source. It’s made with durable, lightweight, dielectric thermoplastic bodies.


Pendant Lockout Device – is a lockout bag capable of locking out large electrical connectors, oddly-shaped plugs, crane pendant controls, elevator controllers, and more. It has a flexible, durable, and high-quality rip-stop polyester/nylon bag, secured by multiple padlocks or hasps.


Electrical Panel Lockout Device – is a lockout device used to lock electrical panel buttons and switches that do not have a built-in lockout feature. It has removable push-button and rotary switch covers, with transparent bases and coverings that allow nameplates and labels to be seen.

To use it, first remove the plug from the electrical outlet. Open the lockout device and close it over the plug then secure it with a safety padlock. This way, the plug lock prevents unauthorized re-connection of electrical equipment and machinery to their power source.
Yes, plug lockout devices come in different types and sizes to accommodate a large variety of plug shapes and sizes. TRADESAFE has plug locks that work for plugs with a max diameter of 2-⅛” and sizes that are more than 1" up to 3" in diameter. Such locks also fit 110V to 220V plugs in different shapes.
Lockout tagout safety posters should be prominently displayed and positioned near any energy sources that must be turned off in the workplace.
A lockout tagout cinch bag, also known as a pendant lockout, is a lockout sack that properly locks out odd-sized and huge electrical connections as well as hoist controls. It features a rip-stop polyester/nylon bag that is flexible, sturdy, and high-quality, and it is secured by various padlocks or hasps.
Each team, department, corporation, or contractor organization should have only one representative. Then, each member of each group, including the team representative, should have their assigned set of locks and tags. Follow standard lockout tagout practices, and have the team representative use the team's lock and tag. Use the lockbox to store the team key that is attached to the equipment that is to be locked out. Then, each team member uses their own lock and tag on the lockbox, preventing the machine or equipment from starting until all locks are removed and everyone is safe.
