527 Lockout Tagout Padlocks OSHA Lockout Tagout Regulations 1910.147(c)(5) OSHA Lockout Device Requirements state that lockout devices must: Be provided by the employer Be standardized by size, shape or color Be distinguishable from locks used for other purposes. Lockout locks should only be used for lockout! Identify the individual who applied the lock (both tags and lock labels are acceptable for this purpose) Be capable of withstanding the usage environment and must be strong enough to prevent removal except by using excessive force with special tools, such as bolt cutters. Most importantly, whenever lockout devices are applied, they must remain under the exclusive control of the individual who attached them. No employee should be able to open a lock attached by someone else. A master or grand master key can be used to open multiple locks that are keyed differently. This allows supervisors to easily remove a lock in the event of an emergency. In order for employees to retain exclusive control, master and grand master keys should be kept in a secure location that is accessible only to management. Key Charting Brady can track or "chart" your key codes upon request to simplify ordering replacement locks and to avoid duplicates when ordering additional locks. There is no extra charge for charting. Call Brady Customer Service for details. Keying & Charting Options Need a Customized Solution? At Brady, we can help you with all of your custom lock needs. Brady customer service representatives are ready to answer your questions and get you started with: Custom Keying Logo and Text Engraving Serialization Charting Keyed Different Keyed Alike Master and Grand Master Keyed Brady padlocks come "keyed different" when purchased from stock. This means that the key for one lock should not open another. Brady padlocks use 5- or 6-pin cylinders with keys precision machined to exacting standards. This enables us to offer a greater number of unique keys than other locks with the same number of pins, making it highly unlikely that you will ever receive a duplicate lock. When keyed alike, all locks in a set can be opened with the same key. This option is beneficial when multiple locks are assigned to a single employee. Remember, however, that under OSHA regulations no employee should be able to open a lock applied by someone else. Therefore, keyed alike locks from the same set should never be distributed to multiple employees. 1-888-272-3946
