Lockout/tagout software
Field ID has launched a lockout/tagout module designed to help safeguard workers with digital lockout/tagout procedures. Safety managers can now use Field ID on the web, smartphones and tablets to control lockout/tagout procedures and ensure equipment, machinery and energy sources are properly locked out prior to any required servicing or maintenance. With Field ID, safety managers can author specific lockout/tagout procedures to be followed by employees and ensure hazardous energy sources are discharged in their proper sequence. A smartphone or tablet with Field ID can guide employees through the process until proper lockout is complete and keep safety managers up to date on critical safety statuses, says the manufacturer. Field ID developed the lockout/tagout feature drawing on decades of expertise in lockout solutions offered by Master Lock Company. Field ID combines web-based and mobile technologies with the power of electronic identification (RFID and barcodes) to improve the efficiency, reliability and reporting of workplace safety management. Manufacturers, distributors, third-party inspectors and end users worldwide use Field ID to inspect facilities and equipment, conduct job site audits, manage corrective and preventive actions, improve training/certifications management, and track assets such as cranes, slings and harnesses. www.fieldid.com.
