Solution: Optimal safety with padlock & key
The company’s safety experts were already well informed about Lockout/Tagout, a
safety procedure that can temporarily neutralise machines from their energy supply.
Because of this, Brady was able to quickly offer dedicated Lockout/Tagout solutions
with an optimal fit to our customer’s machines and electrical cabinets based on
pictures shared by the customer.
After seeing videos of how to easily implement each Lockout/Tagout solution, our
customer decided on Brady’s universal mini circuit breaker lockout device, the
compact safety padlock with thin shackle and Brady’s standard safety padlock.
Brady supplied the solutions in practical Lockout/Tagout bags, 1 per maintenance
professional. Each bag includes universal mini circuit breaker lockout devices to
easily block circuit breakers in the off-position. Padlocks in the bag can be used to
lock the universal mini circuit breaker lockout in place. They are personalised with
an engraving, and keyed alike so that maintenance professionals can open all of
their own padlocks with a single key. They are keyed different versus the padlocks
in every other bag, so nobody can accidentally remove the padlock of a colleague
who might still be servicing the machine. The padlocks are also colour-coded using
green for all electrical lockout, and red for mechanical lockout.
The bag also holds a Lockout/Tagout hasp to allow multiple padlocks on a single
universal mini circuit breaker lockout device. This will keep a machine neutralised
until all maintenance professionals involved are finished and removed their personal
