Under a Group Lock Box System where should the lockbox be located? Some at my work site say it should be located in view of the energy isolating device. Others say it should be located in the office of the Electrical Competent person. Others say it does not matter where it is located.

Concern being that under a LOTO protocol person(s) who have locks and tags attached to energy isolating devices need to physically check their locks and tags before commencing work to ensure that conditions have not changed. If the lockbox is located remote from the energy isolating device then their could be tempetation to not physically check the energy isolating device.

Comments appreciated.
