Lockout Hasps are integral to a successful safety lockout program or procedure as they can provide effective multi-person lockout. Multiple padlocks can be applied to Lockout Hasps, this allows an energy source to be isolated by more than one worker. This means that the energy source is completely locked out and can’t be operated until each worker unlocks their padlock from the hasp.

Lockout Hasps clip on to several different areas of a hazardous energy source, ensuring that it can’t be switched on (LOCKED OUT) and tagging it visually (TAGOUT). By clearly marking the lockout hasp with a date and name and attaching a padlock to the hasp, the hasp is efficiently used in a successful safety lockout program.

Our hasps are available in several different sizes which means that workers can effectively isolate any energy source required. Padlocks applied to the hasp can be colour-coded depending on which engineer has the key, this will mean added safety.

Hasps are an integral part of any lockout tagout procedure as you will often find that you will need to use hasps for an effective multi-person repair or maintenance team. The function of hasps is to be used by multiple people, they take multiple padlocks and allow an energy source to be locked out by more than one person.

Essentially meaning that each machine locked out with a hasp will not be able to be re-engaged until each individual worker removes their padlock from the hasp. A hasp should be a part of every lockout procedure, it is a vital piece of hardware.

In order to comply with health and safety regulations in the work place, when deactivating machinery for repair, maintenance or inspection, you must have adequate lockout procedures in place to ensure your workers safety. Hasps are a vital part of any lockout kit, as such use our categories to ensure that they are utilised in your lockout procedures.

The best use for hasps is being attached to the primary isolator when applying lockout devices, to isolate the power of machinery. Then, workers attach their personal padlock each in turn, depending on how many personnel have to complete tasks on the machine to complete the work. Each hasp usually holds six padlocks as this is a good average size of a maintenance team but even one padlock will fully secure the hasp in place. Due to its essential nature it is a part of almost all of our lockout kits, these kits are a good place to start after completing your lockout procedure.

The function of having more than one padlock engaged at one time is to let others, namely unauthorised employees and people working on the machine, know how many people are involved in the work at one time and when they are performing repair and maintenance functions. It also acts as a simple safety system, in place to stop people from engaging the machinery before the work is complete, you can even use colour coded padlocks given to specific employees so that they can see in an instant who is carrying out work and who is finished.

A Variety of Hasp Materials
When using hasps to lock out circuit breakers or any equipment with the risk of electrical injury you will want to consider using non-conductive plastic hasps, these are made of strong plastics and in some cases plastics that are extremely flexible, that cannot be easily broken apart whether from accident or intent.

The other main type of hasp that we offer are metal hasps. These are hard wearing and great for use in industrial areas, these types of hasp are the more common one you will come across in lockout kits as they can generally be used in more applications and offer greater security.

There are many and varied types of hasps to choose from, to increase safety when applying hasps consider a larger hasp with enough surface area to put a warning or prohibition label on it. This is a simple way to let others know of the consequences of tampering with the hasp or removing padlocks without authorisation. Another way to ensure vital information is displayed especially on smaller hasps is by using lockout tags, these can be attached by a simple cable tie to a padlock or in the loop of the has or padlock itself, simple steps that can be taken to increase safety. Communication and information are key in any lockout process.
Are lockout hasps necessary for my lockout procedure?
Having a padlock for each of the people that is involved in your lockout process is a prudent measure to ensure that when a group needs to work on a machine, they can each display that they are still in the process of completing work. Using a hasp is an easy way of displaying this vital information and eliminates unsafe practises when it comes to locking out switches and valves with devices and padlocks only.

What is the best way to use lockout hasps?
In general you will not need to use them unless a group of people are going to be performing maintenance on the machinery required. An individual can simply use their personal padlocks to lockout any equipment necessary, however if at any point in the process more than one person is going to be working on the machinery then the use of a hasp is a must.

How many hasps should I have to ensure the security of my equipment during maintenance?
An easy way to ensure that you will always have enough is by using our lockout kits, many of which come with several hasps, making sure that no matter how many maintenance or repair situations occur at once you will always be prepared.
A lockout hasp is used when more than one employee is involved in a lockout:tagout operation. These employees work in a group on the same energy source. The hasps allow multiple padlocks to be used when isolating one energy source such as a piece of machinery or a power switch. The lockout hasp is placed through a latch on the machinery to be locked out and each person carrying out maintenance or service work attaches their padlock through one of the six openings within the lockout hasp. All of the padlocks are then locked.

Long Reach Hasps And Short Reach Hasps. Often times it is difficult to get to the latch in order to use a lockout hasp. Specially designed Long Reach and Short Reach Hasps with thin 1/4” or 1/8” shackles are able to fit into these spaces thus making the hasp available for locking out more than one padlock. There are hasps that are available with shackles on both ends, if that is what is necessary to insure that the attached padlocks lock out the energy sources.
