Check out our lockouts for electrical hazards 

An Electrical lockout device prevents machines and equipment from being energized by locking an energy-isolating device in a safe position. This protects workers from accidental restarts during machine maintenance and cleaning activities.

The use of electrical interlocks that do not isolate the main current, but only the control current, are officially not Lockout-Tagout lockouts. Locking out the control current falls under the rules of the Machinery Directive. This applies particularly to lockouts for push buttons and emergency stops.

These electrical lockout devices are available for different types of circuit breakers, insulation plugs, plugs and push-buttons. Electrical lockouts are made of non-conductive materials wherever possible and should be locked with a non-conductive safety padlock, preferably with a non-conductive plastic shackle.

Electrical lockouts are available for the following electrical isolation points:

- Circuit breakers pin-in
- Circuit breakers pin-out
- Circuit breakers without pin
- Oversized circuit breakers
- Motor circuit breakers (starter motors)
- Toggle switches
- Screw fuses (E27, E33, E14, E16, E18)
- NH fuses
- Wall switches
- Industrial plugs
- Batteries
- Pushbuttons
- Emergency stops
- Control consoles

These days there are many universal lockouts on the market for circuit breaker lockouts. That is why the number of different lockouts for electrical hazards can be significantly reduced.
