MILWAUKEE, Wis. (January 24, 2014) — Brady (NYSE:BRC), a global leader in industrial and safety printing systems and solutions, offers complete lockout/tagout solutions as part of its Client Services offerings. Brady Client Services’ full suite of lockout/tagout services and software offerings includes procedure writing services, cloud-based procedure creation and maintenance software, lockout/tagout training and more.
“Having up-to-date and accurate lockout/tagout procedures is essential in creating a safe workplace. Lockout/tagout is continually on OSHA’s top ten most frequent violations, making it an important area of improvement for many companies, but a large undertaking. That’s where we come in,” says Tim Bandt, global director of Client Services for Brady. “Brady helps our clients by providing the tools and training needed to both establish a lockout/tagout program that goes above and beyond compliance, and enable that program to be sustained in-house.”
Brady’s lockout/tagout procedure writing services start with determining the scope and focus of each customer’s program. Then a team of highly-experienced field engineers arrive onsite to create visually-instructive procedures within our LINK360® software and identify the equipment energy source locations with color-coded tags. To ensure the program remains compliant, field engineers collaborate with internal staff throughout the process to help them understand how to maintain their program.
In addition, Brady’s premier Link 360® software is the first of its kind, allowing companies to create, maintain, store and access lockout/tagout documents in-house through its cloud-based platform.
“As a company, Brady is committed to helping customers sustain their safety investment for long-term success. To date, Brady has over 30 years of consulting experience and has created, reviewed and installed over 50,000 procedures for clients,” says Bandt. “We take a personal approach to creating and maintaining effective lockout/tagout programs for our clients – think of us as your trusted advisor.”
