    Lock out Tag out components

    I am new to this forum. Thanks for the add!

    The device and component types are ever changing and increasing in our industry these days. We are looking to update our lockout/tagout inventory and I was wondering if I could get some input on what would be the most versatile and complete system on the market today. We work in the light industrial and life sciences environments mainly and with so many devices needing our attention I thought I would ask for some advice before investing substantially in a system that only covers a fraction of our needs. Any input would be greatly appreciated!

    I am a proponent of LOTO. I use it substantially more than my peers.

    That said, I would reassess your LOTO inventory and then spend the money on TRAINING. All the little hasps and clamps look nice, but IMO a lock and a tag get 99% of it.

    Don't invest in a "system." One size does not fit all. There are many different disconnects and breakers. Start with locks and tags, then take a look at what you'll need to put the lock on.

    Get a few switch lockouts. These are handy when breaker panel is a long way off. You can lock wall switch in closed position.
    Yes, I'll be happy to do a first class job for less than anyone else and take a dollar a week for 10 years.

    I think I prefer that the switch be locked in the open position.......

    Duh on me. I meant to say open or off.
