Field ID, a provider of safety compliance and inspection applications, offers a patent pending lockout/tagout (LOTO) module designed to help safeguard workers with digital lockout/tagout procedures.

Safety managers now can use Field ID on the Web, smartphones and tablets to control lockout/tagout procedures and ensure equipment, machinery and energy sources are properly locked out prior to any required servicing or maintenance. With Field ID, safety managers can authorize specific lockout/tagout procedures to be followed by employees and ensure hazardous energy sources are discharged in their proper sequence. A smartphone or tablet with Field ID can guide employees through the process until proper lockout is complete and keep safety managers up to date on critical tasks, according to the company.
