Ready Access storage stations ensure that lockout devices remain easily accessible and ready for use whenever needed. Proper lockout/tagout procedures and devices are essential in meeting OSHA guidelines, protecting employee safety and maintaining productivity. The stations are available in two styles. The padlock station is designed to hold padlocks, group lockout hasps and tags. It measures 7 by 13 by 2.5 inches, almost half the size of other 10-padlock stations. The lockout station offers flexible, organized storage for a wide range of lockout devices both large and small, with a 5-inch deep storage pocket and four detachable hanging hooks.
Both stations are made from rugged injection-molded polypropylene, and come with an attachable handle for easy portability, plus screw slots for permanent wall mounting. The semi-transparent cover allows the contents to be easily viewed while protecting the lockout devices from exposure to harsh chemicals. The cover's lockable feature protects contents from harsh environments.
Both stations can be purchased empty or filled with Brady lockout devices. The Ready Access Padlock Station comes with either five or ten padlocks, and a suitable number of hasps, tags and tag fasteners. The lockout station is available in different configurations for electrical, mechanical or combined electrical and mechanical applications.
The devices available feature Brady's most popular circuit breaker, valve, plug and cable lockouts, allowing users to lock out more applications with fewer devices. This helps users lower equipment costs, while simplifying the training process and reducing the risk of employees using the wrong lockout device for their particular application.
Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
