Back in April Spectrum Industrial; manufacturer and supplier of safety signage and products, commissioned independent research amongst small independent retailers, who had kept their doors open during the lockdown. The aim was to truly understand how these retailers were implementing and managing social distancing and how they could help.
New changes across the country are happening daily and these changes are substantial. Businesses are changing the way they work. Some are unfortunately having to close their doors for good and others are having to pivot into new areas and ways of production to survive.
When it comes to choosing the right safety padlock for your establishment, business sector, lockout procedure and process, there are several areas to consider so that you can choose, utilise and implement them effectively and safely.
The locks themselves form an integral part of a safety procedure, however, the wrong safety padlock choices could unravel even the most comprehensive procedure.
When do we need to isolate and lockout and when don’t we? What are the exceptions to the rule? And how do you guarantee your own safety?
Lockout Tagout is becoming more and more pertinent and accepted as best practice in a wider range of industries across the world. America’s health and safety sectors are adopting the procedure early, paving the way for others to follow and in some countries, it is being made a law.
