LOTO improves worker safety – Applying LOTO allows companies to minimise the risks associated with machinery when it comes to cleaning, maintenance, and repair. 

By creating detailed LOTO cards, your machine operators will have access to vital information including energy sources, isolator locations, and how to secure them. Providing this resource for your workplace will make it safer and more compliant.

Every year, hundreds of Kiwi employees are seriously injured or killed by machinery. Presses often cause crushing injuries to fingers, arms, and bodies. Many of these incidents occur because energy source isolation and de-energisation has not carried out by the machine operator. LOTO stands for LOCK OUT, TAG OUT and is a set of established procedures that includes locking out and tagging out each of the energy sources on a machine. 

In this guide, we explain why LOTO is necessary, how LOTO improves safety, and more in our Explainer Guide To LOTO.
