Audit / Consulting
ALEDO s.r.o. provides audit and advisory services in the implementation of LOTO.
We are happy to send you a specialist who performs an overall audit at your workplaces and proposes solutions for the locking devices.
In the first step he tracks down the minimum range of the equipment necessary for ensuring all devices during one day. Then, he/she will come to your workplace and arrange the exact method of securing the individual devices with you, including processing general guidelines for the provision of equipment and instructions (manual) for specific machines - everything according to your requirements. In the third step he makes a training for employees that are interested, including practical examples.
Don't you know which LOTO element to use? We will send you a specialist who will test all the components on the spot with you and will identify the best way of securing.
Efficient Lockout Programme in 4 Steps
Follow the BEST GLOBAL PRACTICE plan for creating an efficient lockout programme:
1. Create energy control (LO/TO) policy & procedures
The first step is to develop and document a lockout policy that identifies in detail the purpose and scope of the lockout programme.
We can help you to create a roadmap for the successful LO/TO programme implementation, where you need to execute an audit of all existing potential sources of hazardous energy, create a list, describe procedures and define responsibilities.
Why do you need lockout procedures:
- Procedures serves as a check sheet to help employees avoid mistakes and reduce the risk of accidents and injuries.
- Procedures speed lockout activity, which in turn reduces downtime and improves operational productivity.
- Documented machine-specific energy control procedures are required by OSHA.
2. Identify all energy control points
In this step you need to localise and clearly mark all energy control points, including valves, switches, breakers and plugs, with permanently placed labels or tags. Our label makers Do-It-Yourself Signmarking printing systems together with durable label materials are designed to provide you with reliable and long-lasting identification.
3. Equip authorised employees with the proper lockout tools and warning devices
We offer you a comprehensive line of LO/TO devices and tools - Padlocks include safety, non-conductive, brass, Lockouts include Valve, Universal and Circuit breakers, Tags, Labels, Lockout Boxes, Padlock Stations and much more!
