LO/TO storage stations
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.
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
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
