Desktop software replaces lockout procedure writing software
Brady Corp. has released the LINK360® desktop software for lockout/tagout programs. This software, which replaces the manufacturer’s current LockoutPro software, allows users to create, edit, save, and print lockout/tagout procedures using templates for standardized procedures.
The software lets EH&S and facility managers create lockout/tagout procedures using short or long forms. Long-form procedures can now have images across the top of the procedure, as well as within individual lockout steps. Features include positioned arrows on the procedure's images for annotating lockout locations, direct editing functionality that eliminates the need for a template wizard, and managed storage for lockout/tagout retrieval.
Several components, such as notes, verification column, verification summary, purpose and scope, and shutdown and restore, can be turned on or off within the template manager to exclude information that does not apply.
