Short cuts cost lives

21 September 2020

Safety signs manufacturer and safety products supplier Spectrum Industrial have launched a guide to help industries implement a Lockout Tagout Try Out (LOTOTO) process within their facilities.

LOTOTO is the correct method for isolating machinery to ensure that when repairs, maintenance, cleaning or inspections of equipment is undertaken, it is done so safely.

According to hse.gov.uk in 2019/20 there were 111 worked killed in workplace accidents and nearly 70k injured and major industries are now adopting the lock out tag out try out process. Due to the awareness and associated real life risk, it is now being recognised as best practice for safety management in quarries, oil & gas, manufacturing, food processing plants and more.

Spectrum Industrial have built this guide to raise awareness, promote best practice and to help increase safety across high risk establishments where harm can be caused from machinery. The guide will show you the step by step procedures that should be followed to complete a successful isolation and will help you to create your own LOTOTO process.

With over 20 years experience, Spectrum Industrial pride themselves on building their experience in all things safety, as well as safety signage and products, the business also provides businesses with safety audits and training for the products they offer.
