LOTO gone digital
With no room for error in Lockout Tagout, you need to ensure that isolations are performed to the highest standard, every single time.
Not only does your staff safety depend on it, but so does your plant uptime and therefore your production.
Logical Lock is an end-to-end solution that digitalizes your LOTO workflow, ensuring staff is safe and compliant in every isolation, by combining a suite of connected technologies that make LOTO failure a thing of the past.
SAFETY AS STANDARD
Logical Lock was built from the ground up, with regulated safety standards in mind, incorporating general compliance guidelines for isolation procedures, as established by major international Health and Environmental Safety regulatory entities:
Documentation and safe operating procedures
Create best practice process documentation in just a few clicks with the inbuilt form builder and publish task data to the cloud, granting staff prompt access to up-to-date safe operating procedures through the digital lockbox and mobile assistant.
Risk Assessments and control measures
Intuitively perform detailed risk assessments and apply preventive control measures, automatically notifying those affected about identified hazards, associated risk factors and operational activity.
Iteratively improve best practice, building on past risk assessments with new observations as Logical Lock draws on task history to help you identify related hazards.
The game changer
Real-time isolation monitoring
Simplify Lock management with real-time isolation monitoring, by integrating the smart digital lockbox in your LOTO workflow.
Upon closing isolation lock keys inside the digital lockbox, RFID chips on personal lock devices are scanned, informing operators in real-time about machinery isolation status and actively locked on staff members, efficiently preventing unwanted third party Tagout or unexpected equipment energization.
Control compliance with digital checkpoints
RFID tags on PPE and lock devices alongside QR codes on isolation points allow cross-checking compliance status against isolation permit requirements in real-time.
Through RFID user login and smart PPE scanning, the digital Lockbox not only ensures staff is fully trained for the task at hand but also properly protected with the required PPE.
If at any given moment Logical Lock detects non-compliance it immediately revokes permit to work, blocking task progression.
Reliable lockouts every time with the mobile assistant
With the mobile guidance assistant, Logical Lock is made available to operations anywhere, meaning staff will have everything they need for consistently safe isolations right at their fingertips.
Guide staff through up-to-date legal documentation, Safe Operating Procedures and Risk Assessments, helping them progress through digital checkpoints by ensuring full compliance at every step.
Logical Lock’s mobile assistant is also available on hands-free interface, making all of its features accessible through voice input.
This way operators can keep both hands free to carry out safer and even more efficient isolations and maintenance interventions.
AUTOMATED CONTROL OF WORK
No more delays issuing/pursuing time consuming Permit-To-Work
Reversing the traditional approach to PTW, our digital checkpoint system ensures an uninterrupted workflow, by assuming permit to work from the get go, revoking it on a step-by-step basis as soon as non-compliance is detected, immediatly blocking progress until any pending compliance requirements are met.
1. System Configuration
Administrator configures the platform workflow, ensuring contextual predictive actions during lockout steps (staff, ppe, tools, equipments, locations, etc.).
2. Isolation Risk Assessment
Supervisor reviews S.O.P. (safe operation procedure) and performs isolation risk assessment.
3. Isolation instructions
Guided by the mobile assistant, supervisor heads to pointed locations to start the lockout, scanning isolation locks with the tablet’s inbuilt scanner, to confirm energy source shutdown.
Supervisor places collected isolation lock keys inside the digital lockbox and inserts personal lock device, assigning it to the current lockout task (automatically verified via RFID by the lockbox).
5. Maintenance Risk Assessment
Supervisor performs maintenance risk assessment, applying any necessary safety control measures.
6. Operator compliance
Operator logs in to start maintenance intervention. Lockbox then cross checks operator’s PPE and training against task permit requirements.
7. Risk Assessent review
Operator reviews risk assessment for the maintenance intervention.
Keep up with detailed analytics
Check monthly lockout activity, keeping track of expired equipment inspections and training, all at a glance in a single screen.
Keep up with all notifications through the onboard notification center, monitoring risk and safety related events from every Lockout procedure throughout your organization.
Already deployed in the Oil and Gas, Cement and Metal industries the results are proven to be game changing:
Time loss reduction
Reduction in LOTO duration
Hands on tools time increase
Company liability reduction
