5 Steps to a Safer Workplace!

To ensure the safety of personnel working with machines and equipment or around it, every company should implement these safety measures. Have you heard of LockOut/TagOut/TryOut?

What is LockOut/TagOut/TryOut (LoToTo)?

LockOut – Involves applying LOTO (Lockout-Tagout) units and locks to energy control points. This physically prevents the operation of machinery or equipment.
