We recognize every site is different so we've allowed complete control of the types of energy sources you add into LOTOBuilder.
LOTO – also known as lockout/tagout or energy isolation – is the practice of locking and tagging a piece of electrical equipment after it has been de-energized. This equipment then cannot be re-energized unless a specific procedure is followed – one which requires the notification and approval of those who de-energized it.
LOTO procedures are commonly used when one piece of equipment needs to be de-energized so that another piece of equipment can be accessed, then inspected or repaired.
LOTO procedures for the control of hazardous energy provide employers with a way to prevent electrical mishaps and ensure that workers will be kept safe from the de-energized equipment while performing necessary tasks. Once the tasks are completed, workers can unlock/untag the de-energized piece of equipment and return it to service following a specific procedure.
Any company working with electrical equipment may need to use LOTO.
In the U.S., OSHA has identified and published LOTO requirements for several industries.
These requirements can be found in their respective sections of the OSHA 29 CFR listing or in those National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) standards which have been requested by OSHA.
Twenty-five U.S. states, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands have adopted OSHA-approved State Plans, which are identical to or more stringent than U.S. Federal OSHA standards. Similarly, Canada, the U.K., Australia, South Africa, and other countries have established their own LOTO requirements.
LOTOBuilder helps users meet U.S. Federal OSHA requirements for lockout/tagout, which may or may not be more stringent than other countries' requirements.
Large businesses and government agencies can now rely on LOTOBuilder to enable employees to share their knowledge and build highly effective LOTO procedures using organization-wide online accounts.
Smaller businesses can rely on LOTOBuilder because it is the easiest, most straightforward way to produce comprehensive LOTO procedures that meet company and OSHA requirements.
