The first step in developing a safer work environment, says Ideal—especially for employees working on or near energized electrical equipment—is a complete set of lockout/tagout (LOTO) solutions. To help, Ideal offers a plant facility lockout/tagout kit that keeps all necessary devices in one place. Housed in a red polypropylene plastic toolbox, the kit contains lockouts for 277/480/600V breakers, plugs, valves, wall switches, and multi-pole breakers; fuse blockouts, safety hasps, and multiple “Do Not Operate” lockout tags. The toolbox resists oil and chemicals.
