Actually a pretty common method for LOTO. Works better than seeing 200 locks and scissors falling to the floor from the front of an MCC.:laughing:

That's basically the same setup we have for what we call "group" lockouts. Operations sets up the clearance hangs the locks and then we walk down all the points to verify theyre and then sign on.

I forgot about this pic. Was used while working in the tunnels at a power generation plant. They were adding a backup tunnel and all workers had to lock out for a week or so, as blasting was going to happen.
Please explain what procedure is being used. :)

It was a way to keep track. The project was up the side of a mountain, as soon as you arrive on site, lock went on, as soon as you left lock came off. Then at end of shift they knew who was still up there before blasting.
No second chance on this project, you forget to lock on or out your off the project, no wake up from camp to get your lock.
