The final component for a compliant lockout-tagout program is the actual hardware needed to perform lockout: locks, tags, and lockout devices. In order for employees to properly lockout equipment, they need the right devices for each type of energy isolating devices. Types of devices include: gate valve devices, ball valve devices, circuit breaker devices, quick disconnect devices, etc. Devices need to be substantial, durable, and singularly identifiable; they should be standardized in the facility by either color, shape, or size. Devices should be selected based on need, ease of use, proper size & weight, and price. Shop Locks and Devices >
