When applying a lockout device a padlock is used to secure the Lockout Tagout device in place. This prevents the energy source, whichis being ‘locked off’ by the LOTO device, from being used. In order to access the energy source both the padlock and lockout kit have to be removed.
What does Master Keyed mean?
When using keyed different padlocks, each individual lock can only be opened by a key specifically designed for that lock. It is good practice to have a master key for these padlocks, in case the individual keys go missing.
The master key is capable of opening different keyed different padlocks, and can be provided as part of a package of locks to ensure you’ve always got the means of removing your lockout device from an energy source.
