Colour Coding & Keying Systems

Colour Coding Service for your Safety Padlocks

Safety Padlocks and Keys Tags can be colour coded to the colour that is specified in your Lockout Tagout Safety Program.

Coloured safety padlocks are most widely in use across production facilities (both large and small) to indicate the seriousness or severity of the danger associated with maintenance tasks being carried out on a specific machine. Common practice is to use bright coloured (red) locks for high-risk operations, as most people recognise and aptly respond to this colour.

The standard colours available for your safety padlocks and key tags are: Black, Blue, Green, Orange, Purple, Red, Teal, Yellow.

For your safety padlock range, we can offer you a simple yet flexible customised keying system, in order to comply with your Lockout Tagout Safety Program.
