Lock-out Tag-out (LOTO) for Valves

Lock-out Tag-out (LOTO) for valves are used to prevent different kinds of pressured values to ensure that the equipment that has the valve remains switched off while maintenance is in place. Before placing the padlocks or hasps, the valve lockout is attached to the operational part of the valve.

This helps to improve safety by making information readable. Employees can identify the valve by looking at its color, material, or any other available information.
