The Importance of Security Seals and Tags in Your LOTO Program

Pro-Lock HE Flag Seals

 

Lockout -Tagout (LOTO) programs are essential for ensuring the safety of workers in industrial settings, but they are only effective if they are properly implemented and followed. One important aspect of LOTO programs that is often overlooked is the use of security seals and tags.

At Pro-Lock, we understand the importance of security seals and tags in LOTO programs.

Here are just a few reasons why they are so important:

  1. Unauthorized Access Security tags and seals are made to stop unauthorised people from using locked-out equipment. They can assist in preventing accidental or deliberate removal of the lockout mechanism by providing a visual cue that an item of equipment is locked out.
  2. Safety Security seals and tags can improve workplace safety by giving a visual cue that a piece of equipment is locked out. They can assist prevent accidents and injuries by ensuring that workers are informed of any potential risks related to the machinery.
  3. Many regulatory agencies require the use of security seals and tags in lockout-tagout programs. For example, OSHA standard 1910.147 requires that all energy control devices be labelled with a warning tag, indicating the name of the person who applied the lockout device and the date and time of application.
  4. Security seals and tags can be customized to meet the specific needs of your LOTO program. For example, you can add custom labels or engraving to your tags, making it easy to identify who applied the lockout device and when.
