What is it?
The WorkSafeⓇ Lock Out Tag Out Module ensures that hazardous equipment is properly isolated and not able to be started up again prior to the completion of maintenance or servicing work.
Management of Isolations is both a procedure and a software module. The LOTO procedure describes how electrical energy and piping system pressure and contents are isolated. The software module reduces label writing bureaucracy and increases control of the isolation, partial and final de-isolation of plant.
