Brady's Plug Valve Lockout helps process industries comply with OSHA 29 CFR §1910.147
Brady Corporation has unveiled the Plug Valve Lockout. As the first lockout device to effectively secure manually-actuated plug valves, the Plug Valve Lockout is well suited for compliance with Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations for controlling hazardous energy in the workplace.
Brady will release the Plug Valve Lockout in four sizes, which together fit all of the popular plug valves from one to eight inches in diameter, including Cooper-Cameron, Dezurik, Flowserve, Homestead, Nordstrom and Xomox. The device effectively locks out the valve by securely covering the operating plug stem and preventing access to it. The base of the lockout device can remain in place once applied, and generally does not interfere with valve activation by wrench or removable handle. The device is compact in size, yet highly visible and easy to use.
