The Brady Lockout Procedure Online Design Tool, from Brady Worldwide Inc., is a new web tool that allows customers to design OSHA-compliant graphical lockout procedures online for less than the cost of a lockout procedure-writing software program, the company says.
Brady calls the Design Tool “the first application in the market for creating graphical lockout procedures online in a pay-as-you-go model.” The procedures can be customized for a specific facility and easily downloaded for printing from a laser or inkjet printer, according to the company.
“Lockout procedure compliance is the number one issue that companies face when managing their hazardous energy control programs in accordance with OSHA standards,” the company reports.
The Design Tool utilizes graphical procedure templates that comply with OSHA’s lockout/tagout standards. The templates feature high-quality images and step-by-step instructions for properly locking out hazardous energy sources, the company says. Customers upload digital images of their equipment onto the procedure and customize it based on their equipment list and lockout points.
After the procedure is purchased, customers can immediately download the PDF and print it using their laser or inkjet printer as many times as needed. The procedure will be saved to their account for 30 days after the purchase date.
Companies pay only for the procedures they need.
The new tool offers several options, including proofing. After the procedure has been designed, customers can print a “proof” of the procedure prior to purchasing it. The proof can be circulated to key stakeholders for approval, and is saved to the customer’s account for 30 days after it was created.
Brady’s Lockout Procedure Online Design Tool is available online 24 hours a day at BradyID.com/lockoutprocedures. Procedures can be any length, and templates are available in a variety of languages, including English, Spanish, Portuguese and French. Procedures can be purchased for $24.99 per procedure.
