Total Lockout (Safety) Ltd launch new stainless steel multi-hasp for safety lockout tagout applications

Posted: Wednesday 20th October 2010

The safety hasp or ‘multi-hasp’ has long been used as a simple device which enables multiple maintenance personnel to work on a common isolated circuit or device, safe in the knowledge that power/energy cannot be restored until their work is finished and they have removed their personal padlock.

This is a basic safe working practice and made reference to in the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 and the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989.

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.

Regardless of which of the engineers finishes work first and removes their padlock, energy cannot be restored until the last engineer finishes and removes his/her padlock. With the last padlock removed, the hasp can be taken of the isolating device and the equipment switched back on.

The new stainless steel hasp from Total Lockout (Safety) Ltd is manufactured entirely from 316 stainless steel, thereby making it highly resistant to corrosion in marine environments or environments where chemicals are used. In addition it has 8 padlock holes providing greater capacity for additional engineers working on the same equipment.
