Make compliance procedures clear for all employees, avoid lockout/tagout problems

Lockout/tagout (LOTO) problems feature consistently among the top five violations for regulatory agencies in the Americas. Omron’s experts can give you the necessary information and advice to help you avoid a citation.

Compliance-related procedures must be clear and fully accessible to all employees. Omron will help you present all requirements in a way that your team can readily grasp and execute.

What is LOTO, and why is it so important?

When your employees need to perform maintenance, repairs or adjustment (including line changeovers), you must keep them safe from hazardous machine motion. In practice, this means that you must isolate and dissipate any hazardous energy sources. This is no time to let operators rely on their best guesses as to how to prevent machines from unexpectedly turning on. You want your instructions to be clear, complete and easily accessible to all employees.
