The North Safety group lock box is a steel box lockable by up to 13 padlocks (sold one after the other), capacity for hundreds of loose keys, and a slot in the lid for adding loose keys when the box is locked shut. The steel is 1/4″ thick and painted red for high visibility and corrosion resistance. It has a stainless-steel deal with for portability. This box is a part of a lockout/tagout (LOTO) safety procedure required at facilities where devices and energy sources need more than one-person authorization to be accessed safely right through maintenance and repair.
The box measures 6 x 10-1/4 x 4-1/4 (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.) The key slot measures 0.5 x 1.5 inches (H x W).
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 every now and then a physical barrier to help prevent machine operation or power activation right through maintenance and repair. Group lock boxes can give you the ability to use fewer padlocks on lockout devices that wish to provide more than one-person authorization. Placing a single padlock’s key into a group lock box with more than one locks on it allows for the single padlock to serve as a more than one-person authorization device. Repeating this process all the way through a facility can simplify safety procedures, save time, and reduce the total number of padlocks maintained at that facility.
