MILWAUKEE — Brady Corporation (NYSE:BRC) has announced the introduction of its new Ready Access Storage Stations, which ensure that lockout devices remain easily accessible and ready for use whenever needed.

Proper lockout/tagout procedures and devices are essential in meeting OSHA guidelines, protecting employee safety, and maintaining productivity.

The stations are available in two styles:
– The Ready Access Padlock Station is designed to hold padlocks, group lockout hasps, and tags. It measures 7″H x 13″W x 2.5″D – a convenient space-saving design that measures almost half the size of other 10-padlock stations.

– The Ready Access Lockout Station offers flexible, organized storage for a wide range of lockout devices both large and small, with a 5″-deep storage pocket and four detachable hanging hooks.

Both stations are made from rugged injection-molded polypropylene, and come with an attachable handle for easy portability, plus screw slots for permanent wall mounting.

The semi-transparent cover allows the contents to be easily viewed while protecting the lockout devices from exposure to harsh chemicals. The cover’s lockable feature protects contents from harsh environments.

Both stations can be purchased empty or filled with Brady lockout devices. The Ready Access Padlock Station comes with either five or ten padlocks and a suitable number of hasps, tags and tag fasteners. The Ready Access Lockout Station is available in different configurations for electrical, mechanical, or combined electrical and mechanical applications.

The devices available with the Ready Access Lockout Stations feature Brady’s most popular circuit breaker, valve, plug, and cable lockouts, allowing users to lock out more applications with fewer devices. This helps companies lower equipment costs, while simplifying the training process and reducing the risk of employees using the wrong lockout device for their particular application.

Brady’s Ready Access Storage Stations are also available with either Brady laminated steel or safety padlocks. Brady’s safety padlock is designed specifically for lockout applications, and is more compact and lightweight that metal padlocks.

It also features a unique nonconductive body and keyway, protecting workers from shock even if the shackle becomes energized while using the padlock. Brady safety padlocks also deliver superior corrosion resistance when tested against competitive metal and safety padlocks – making them ideal for harsh environments.
