How robust is your lockout procedure?

31 July 2015

Most industries are aware of the need to isolate machinery during maintenance and cleaning but in many case the processes and procedures can be inconsistent or worse non-existent.

"We speak to many companies that know they need to lockout but haven’t got the knowledge or expertise to implement a robust program," David Wheatcroft from Reece Safety Products explained. "With our support they quickly realise that implementing a structured program is not complicated and can be achieved with limited investment in time and money."

Eric Newton from RJS Engineering said: "When we realised we needed to improve our lockout procedure I called Reece and met with David to discuss our detailed requirements. Whilst we already had a good idea of what we were looking to achieve we received excellent advice from Reece and they supported us throughout the design process. The end result is a lockout policy that we are now rolling out across all of our three plants."

Reece can provide whatever support is required from a full consultancy service through to telephone advice from its team of experts.
