Catu Lockout / Tagout Solutions For Electrical & Hydraulic Installations


CATU Electrical Safety Equipment

CATU Lockout / Tagout Solution

A lockout must be done whilst working on an item of electrical installation or work equipment to ensure the safety of workers. 

Depending on the environments, default lockout accidents are caused by the following:

  • Continued presence of live conductor parts for electrical installations
  • Presence of pressurised fluids (hydraulic circuits)
  • Presence of unstable mechanical systems


CATU Locking - Lockout Tagout

The corresponding recommendations must be applied for each risk, but in all cases specific locking with regard to the risk considered must be set up.

Sometimes the overall analysis of risks reveals a combination of the different risks which makes a more extensive locking operation mandatory. This is especially the case with electricity production equipment.

What Does Locking Mean?

The purpose of locking is to separate cut off or neutralisation parts with a suitable, and sufficiently protected system to prevent any operation by unauthorised persons (switching on power for an electrical installation). Locking is generally accompanied by signs.

For the electrical domain, setting up and removing the lockout are described in French and European standards (EN50110-1).

More generally, the safety recommendations are included in Directive CE7: 2009/104/EC on the minimum health and safety recommendations for using work equipment.
