What is LOTO?
LOTO is the abbreviation for Lockout Tagout. Lockout Tagout stands for the safe locking and marking of energy sources during the maintenance and servicing of machinery and equipment. It was developed in the USA, where LOTO has already reduced the number of workplace accidents by more than 70%. Lockout Tagout is becoming more and more popular in Europe.
What is the MSL 1.1 Standard?
The MSL 1. 1 standard was developed by MAX Systems to simplify the implementation of a secure lockout tagout system. According to our standard, the start in a LOTO system can already be made with three locks. The use of locks with different keys prevents accidents caused by the incorrect removal of locks, since the system can only be switched on once each employee has removed his lock. According to MSL 1. 1, the clear marking of plants and energy points is the cornerstone of a successful and safe LOTO concept. It ensures understanding and avoids errors in use. Successful implementation of the concept requires training of all employees concerned. Due to the simple system, this can be done in a maximum of 30 minutes.
