Lock-out Tag-out Try-out

From guidance on isolation, expert advice, site surveys to product selection, we can help.

Employees can be seriously or fatally injured if machinery they are servicing, cleaning, or repairing starts up or re-energises unexpectedly.

Lock-out Tag-out Try-out (LOTOTO) is a term that's recently evolved from its predecessor Lock-out Tag-out (LOTO) a physical method of isolating equipment from dangerous energy sources and providing a highly visible written warning indicating that equipment should not be used. A planned LOTOTO procedure is an effective way of reducing risks involved when maintaining, cleaning, or repairing equipment.

When implemented correctly, not only does LOTOTO reduce the risk of injury but also increases productivity by reducing downtime, and costs associated with repairs after unexpected start-ups, in addition, it limits the risk of liability and prosecution for employers too.
