Safer machine interventions 

Safer machine interventions 

Lockout/Tagout prevents workplace accidents by temporarily but completely isolating machinery from its energy sources. When implemented well, it stops machine movement and energisation while interventions are ongoing.

Brady Corporation is one of the largest suppliers of Lockout/Tagout solutions. “We work with both large and nimble companies to advance ‘go for zero’ ambitions and compliance in workplace safety anywhere in the world,” explains Christophe Nelissen, Brady Corporation’s regional manager of Middle East and Southern Africa.

“We offer our global experience to our customers by harnessing all worldwide best practices and custom solutions in our Lockout/Tagout offer to help prevent any maintenance accident caused by machine energy or moving machine parts,” he continues.

Energy isolation points may include fuses, buttons, valves, wheels, levers, and other systems. These systems control the flow of mechanical, electrical, hydraulic, pneumatic, thermal, gravitational, and stored energy, as well as liquids and gaseous chemicals, hot surfaces, and substances. All of these systems can be turned off, and access can be locked, while maintenance is ongoing.

Wherever you want to take your Lockout/Tagout programme, Brady can guide and support you. “Our complete Lockout/Tagout solution includes innovative padlocks with elaborate key planning, dedicated lockout devices, practical software, and great services. These include energy control point identification and best-in-class procedure writing,” Nelissen adds.

So, where do you want to take your lockout programme? “Make your choice and let us guide you,” Nelissen enthuses.

Brady engineers have created thousands of lockout procedures for hundreds of companies in various industries. Get them to write and implement your best-in-class, company-approved, custom Lockout/Tagout safety procedures as well.

Achieve the safest Lockout/Tagout procedures during maintenance operations. With more than 100 000 unique keys, the locks can support large, company specific key hierarchies in which no two locks can be opened with the same key.

Link360 software enables users to create, scale, update, and validate visually instructive safety procedures. The software provides an easy way to keep safety procedures accurate, compliant, and sustainable in multiple facilities.

Brady’s wide range of devices can block any energy source to neutralise machinery and increase intervention safety.

Make safety top of mind in the workplace and optimise Lockout/Tagout efficiency with highly visible, custom lockout shadow boards. Shadow boards increase the impact of Lockout/Tagout and help to further reduce maintenance risks and accidents.

“Optimise existing programmes easily, or implement world-class Lockout/Tagout from scratch with our complete offer. Anywhere you want to take your Lockout/Tagout programme, Brady can aid and support you,” says Nelissen.
