Delta Health and Safety Equipment offers a comprehensive range of Lockout Tagout solutions. Lockout tagout (LOTO) is a critical safety procedure used in many industries to protect workers from accidental injuries caused by the unexpected startup of equipment or machinery during maintenance or repair work.
We source our LOTO solutions from Brady, a leading international supplier, assuring you of the best quality and reliability. Our range of LOTO solutions includes electrical and mechanical lockout, lockout hasps and tags, lockout padlocks and printers.
LOTO involves a series of steps that must be followed to ensure that energy sources are isolated and locked out, preventing them from being turned on until maintenance or repair work is complete. Possible energy sources include electrical, mechanical, hydraulic, pneumatic, chemical, and thermal energy sources. The energy source is then isolated, and a lockout device is placed on the energy-isolating device, preventing it from being turned on until maintenance or repair work is complete. The lockout device is then labeled with a tagout device that indicates the reason for the lockout and the expected completion time.
LOTO procedures are especially important in industries such as mining, manufacturing, and construction in South Africa, where workers are exposed to hazardous equipment and machinery. Employers must take LOTO seriously by implementing a written program, training their workers, and ensuring that all energy sources are locked out during maintenance or repair work. By implementing LOTO procedures, employers can ensure the safety and health of their workers, prevent accidents, and comply with the law.
