Lockout Tagout (LOTO) software is a digital tool that helps implement lockout tagout procedures and manage resources efficiently. A digital lockout tagout management program provides automated control of hazardous energy lockout in accordance with health and safety standards, eliminating human error with increased availability of information for each piece of equipment and isolation point.
Why should you use this “Management of lockouts tagouts” (LOTO) application in your company?
Companies must regularly perform security operations on their facilities (maintenance, repair work, etc.). These interventions must follow a strict protocol, and involve the use of energy isolation devices to prevent any accidental hazardous energy release.
During the preparation of interventions, this lockout tagout software helps you to identify the hazardous energy sources, to manage the personal protective equipment, and to respect the standard safety procedures for the isolation of installations (separation, locking, detection, control).
The objective is to neutralize the source of energy in order to carry out maintenance or repair work and to guarantee occupational safety and health. This application integrates the various electrical, hydraulic, and mechanical LOTO procedures.

There is a various categories of devices available that can be used to help meet OSHA lockout/Tagout (LOTO) standards (CFR 1910.147): - Padlock-style LOTO devices: used on the outlet or other part of the electrical system to ensure that they cannot be physically used. - Clamp-On Breaker: open up and secure electrical points to ensure power cannot be restored when in place. - Lockout Box: this device fits around the electrical plug and closes around the cord. - Valve Lockout: this device can lockout a wide range of pipe sizes to prevent workers from being exposed to dangerous chemicals. It works by securing the valve in the off position. - Plug Lockout: devices shaped as a cylinder that allows for the plug to be removed from its socket and placed inside the device, preventing employees from plugging in the cord. - Adjustable Cable Lockout: this device is favorable for unique situations that call for multiple lockout points. - Lockout hasps: In the case of equipment used by multiple employees, safety hasps are an option for locking out a machine to ensure that all employees are finished before the machine is powered back on.
Lockout and Tagout (LOTO) software is a digital tool that helps implement lockout tagout procedures and provides automated control of hazardous energy lockout in accordance with health and safety standards, eliminating human error with increased availability of information for each piece of equipment and isolation point.
Lockout and Tagout procedures can vary from one country to another. For instance, In Europe, there is the European standard EN 50110-1, for Canada there is the Canadian Standards Association's standard CSA Z460, in the United States they follow the OSHA regulations, etc.
When performing Lockout and Tagout, there is a basic procedure divided into 4 steps: Step 1: Disconnect all energy sources Step 2: Lockout Step 3: Identification Step 4: Checking for Energy Absence
