When equipment is not switched off and marked properly, serious accidents and overheads can occur: fractures, burns, disability, death. For this reason, more and more companies around the world are implementing the Lokout Tagout System, already confirming the reduction in the number of work-related accidents, costs and damages.
Lockout tagout (LOTO) is the safety procedure used in industry and research with which workers in these areas ensure that hazardous energies are properly shut down before maintenance and servicing work. It is imperative that hazardous sources to be isolated and decommissioned before procedures begin to protect the life and health of workers and their workspace.
The implementation of the procedure protects workers and prevents accidents that can lead to disability or even death of the worker. LOTO prevents costs associated with lost working days and equipment damage by unpredictable start-up; prevents declining revenue generated by non-compliance with production planning; avoid losing the prestige and confidence of business partners.
