Purpose and scope
Securing installations is necessary if equipment can operate uncontrolled during maintenance work or when troubleshooting a fault. In NEN 3140 we already knew the 'Five safety rules', but these are mainly about securing electrical energy. Because there are also other forms of energy, such as hydraulic energy, kinetic energy, pneumatic energy, etc., it is important to first determine which energy must be secured. In fact, that's what LOTOTO means: Lo: Lock out, To: Tag out and To: Try out.
The lock prevents someone from accidentally activating the installation. Each subsequent employee who comes to perform work must also install their own security lock on the lock multiplier. Before the installation is put into operation again, the employee who installed the first padlock with lock multiplier must check whether the environment is safe.
Installing a (Loto) lock that serves as a lock to secure mechanical, electrical, hydraulic or other energy sources. If several people are working on the installation, also use a lock multiplier.
Place the label clearly visible so that it is clear that this installation has been switched off.
Before starting work, try switching the installation on and off to determine whether the lock works. In other words, whether the energy source has been secured.
- Inform those involved about the work that will be carried out.
- Determine which energy source must be secured (electrical, hydraulic, pneumatic, mechanical, etc.)
- Lock the energy source with padlock and lock multiplier (Lock out)
- Check if energy has been removed (Try out)
- Place a 'Do not switch' label (Tag out)
Step 1: Inform those involved about the work to be carried out
Inform those involved that (part of) the installation is going to be shut down.
Step 2: Shut off energy sources
Check which type of energy needs to be disconnected (electrical, mechanical, pneumatic, hydraulic, etc.)
Step 3: Lockout: Lock with padlock and lock multiplier
Insert the lock multiplier and the personal lock. If several technicians are working on the installation at the same time, everyone must place their safety padlock in the lock multiplier and lock it. Everyone who installs the lock keeps their own key with them at all times.
Step 4: Tryout: Verify that the energy has been removed.
Lock out all energy sources with the appropriate Lockout materials (see photos) to shut off the supply to the equipment or machine. Use a lock and/or lock multiplier so that no one can operate the switch or valve while the work is still in progress.
Step 5: Tag-out: Place 'Do not switch' label
Place the label: 'Do not switch'.
