Safety in the workplace extends beyond clothing. For those working with electricity, a critical part of safety is having access to a properly-equipped electrical lockout kit, which allows the engineer or electrician to operate safe in the knowledge that all equipment has been safely isolated and locked off before they commence to work on it.
NECA carries every electrical lockout kit that you might need, from the small, personal kits, to an electrical lockout kit with all the tools to protect the team from a complex electrical environment.
What an electrical lockout kit will include
What a lockout kit might include can vary depending on the purpose of it, but common features that you’ll see in the NECA kits include:
Keyed-alike padlocks to simplify key management for sites that have multiple employees. As per health requirements, each employee should be the only one with a key to a particular padlock.
Lockouts that will work on most circuit breakers, electrical plugs, and disconnect switches.
Informative tags and the like to better communicate the status of a site with others.
Additionally, the cases themselves need to be a combination of highly portable, for easy access and transport around a site, and highly durable, to protect the contents inside. These kits will often be brought into challenging environments, so your employees need to know that they’re up to the task.
