The Master Lock standard group lock box for lockout/tagout is a red powder-coated steel box lockable by up to 12 safety padlocks or hasps, with capacity for hundreds of loose keys, a metal care for for portability, and a slot in the lid for adding loose keys when the box is locked shut. The front of the box reads, “Lock Box Lock Out For Safety” in English, French, and Spanish. This box is a part of a lockout/tagout (LOTO) safety procedure required at facilities where devices and energy sources need a couple of-person authorization to be accessed safely all the way through maintenance and repair.
The box measures 6 x 9-1/4 x 3-3/4 inches (H x W x D). (H is height, the vertical distance from lowest to highest point; W is width, the horizontal distance from left to right; D is depth, the horizontal distance from front to back.)
Lockout/tagout (LOTO) safety procedures require that lockout devices meet Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) 1910.147(c)(5) standards for quality assurance. LOTO devices use color, warning labels or tags, and on occasion a physical barrier to help prevent machine operation or power activation all the way through maintenance and repair. Group lock boxes can give you the ability to use fewer padlocks on lockout devices that wish to provide a couple of-person authorization. Placing a single padlock’s key into a group lock box with a couple of locks on it allows for the single padlock to serve as a a couple of-person authorization device. Repeating this process all through a facility can simplify safety procedures, save time, and reduce the total number of padlocks maintained at that facility.
Master Lock manufactures padlocks, combination locks, and related security products. The company, founded in 1921, is headquartered in Milwaukee, WI.
