The new stainless steel hasp from Total Lockout (Safety) is manufactured entirely from 316 stainless steel, making it highly resistant to corrosion in marine environments or applications where chemicals are used. The
The safety hasp or 'multihasp' is a simple device that enables multiple maintenance personnel to work on a common isolated circuit or device, safe in the knowledge that power/energy cannot be restored until they have removed their personal padlock.
The device works by fitting it to the isolating switch in the off position, followed by a padlock.
The hasp usually has up to six padlock holes, meaning that six engineers can all fit their own padlock in place while they carry out maintenance work on the same isolated device, process or machine.
Energy cannot be restored until the last engineer finishes and removes his/her padlock.
