|Personal isolation of mobile plant
|Due to the number of identical mobile plant keys in circulation, a method was required to ensure the isolation of mobile plant by individuals, so that defective machines could not be activated by operators unaware of the implications.
A steel bracket was fabricated which could be attached to the cab door handle. The opposite end of the bracket would then be attached to the handrail of the vehicle’s access steps.
The bracket can then be secured using a personal padlock. A multi-hasp allows more than one padlock to be placed on the bracket, if more than one operator is working on the machine.
