Lockout Tagout System (LOTO)
The Q4 Isolation manager contains features to manage the entire isolation and de-isolation process.
Its controlling cross checks supports the safety process to ensure the coordination of plant isolation is
secured for permits in accordance with a safe work scheme.
The Q4 system is configured to guide users through the process of creating an Isolation Certificate,
building isolation points and checking for conflicts or the sharing of isolations with other work.
Authorisation, sequencing, verification and confirmation form part of its logical checking for safe
The isolation and de-isolation process is managed with lock and/or tag control and offers a mechanism
for cross-locking to assist in situations where such procedures are prevalent.
The system supports P&IDs interaction, the use of standard isolation templates, the production of
tag labels and also supports Isolation Safety Risk Assessment.
Various modes of operation are offered such as key safe/lock bars operation, tag and/or tag and lock to
confirm each isolation point. Other optional configurable methods are available.
Generally the IC is also configured to work with a Sanction to Test certificate to control the release
of isolations for testing using a safe process.
The purpose of an isolation scheme is to ensure that isolation of hazardous energy and/or opening of
equipment is performed in a safe and controlled manner to ensure that all personnel and the environment are
protected from the sudden unplanned energy release or of flammable, noxious, toxic, or other dangerous substances,
and the unplanned start-up of plant and equipment.
