About energy isolation
The WorkSafe® energy isolation module ensures that hazardous equipment is properly isolated and is not able to be started up again prior to the completion of maintenance or servicing work.
Management of isolations is both a procedure and a software module. The LOTO/energy isolation procedure describes how electrical energy and piping system pressure and contents are isolated. The software module reduces label writing bureaucracy and increases control of the isolation, partial and final de-isolation of plant.
Features and benefits
The key benefits of the WorkSafe® energy isolations module are outlined below.
An isolation process that meets and exceeds legislative and regulatory requirements
WorkSafe® has a comprehensive energy isolation module that is based on the UKCS health and safety executive (HSE) guidance document “the safe isolation of plant and equipment” (HSG253) and meets all regulatory requirements worldwide.
A proven secure, functional and safe system
The WorkSafe® energy isolation process has been deployed on many client sites worldwide and is used by a multinational and multicultural workforce.
A comprehensive solution that manages the complete isolation process for all disciplines
The system enables development of an electrical and mechanical isolation plan, utilising line diagrams and p&ids to create an isolation certificate which can use a comprehensive lockout box process including cascading.
The system manages the complete isolation process from isolation planning, isolation execution, de-isolation and return to service. It also incorporates a sanction to test process.
A fully interlinked system increases on-site safety and control
The WorkSafe® energy isolation module is fully interlinked to the other modules within WorkSafe® to ensure that no isolations can be removed while a work permit is currently live on-site.
