Fortress Interlocks has introduced the Lockout Scissor Hasp for use in locking off dangerous machinery in the workplace. Employees who use the lockout-tagout safety procedure can lock multiple padlocks onto the scissor hasp to secure dangerous machinery, preventing anyone powering up the machine while personnel are inside. The 316 stainless steel scissor hasp accepts up to 3 padlocks from 3-8mm and can also be daisy-chained with extra hasps should more personnel require entry.
The scissor hasp is particularly useful when there is a variable number of people requiring access to the safety zone or where equipment has to be locked off unexpectedly or for long periods of time. The machine can only be restarted when all employees are safely out of the hazardous area and have unlocked and removed their padlocks from the hasp.
In addition, the scissor hasp can be used in conjunction with existing trapped key interlocking, providing a flexible and safe environment for workers in industrial areas. The Fortress Lockout Scissor Hasp is available for use with padlockable dustcovers which protect the internal lock mechanism by preventing the build up of dust and debris inside the lock. An optional cable attachment is also available to anchor the scissor hasp.
Either solely for use with lockout-tagout, or in combination with trapped key interlocking, the scissor hasp is a versatile accessory that helps ensure employee safety.
