http://geekwright.com/ has released recently Gwloto - web based hazardous energy control plan manager module.

It is designed to facilitate the communication and tracking of vital safety procedures to enable workers to safely accomplish maintenance tasks through a documented lockout and tagout program (LOTA).

Lockout/Tagout is a vital safety process, protecting workers from potentially life threatening injury from unexpected energy discharge while performing their assigned duties. In its simplest form, energy control can be just unplugging a piece of equipment before servicing it. But, as the energy complexity of the work place increases, so does the planning needed to protect a worker from the dangers of electrical, mechanical, hydraulic, pneumatic, chemical, thermal, and other energies. In complex process industries, isolating a single piece of equipment for servicing can involve 100 or more distinct actions to create a safely de-energized working environment.

Assisting this process through automation with software can be beneficial, but until now, this required writing custom software or relying on proprietary tools. With the release of gwloto, a complete free and open source software solution stack is now available off the shelf.

Gwloto features:

* Manage control plans to safely de-energize, inspect and re-energize equipment for maintenance

* Create jobs to plan, assign, track and record the execution of control plans

* Associate existing business documents, such as forms, with plans

* Meet the needs of the modern workforce with multilingual capabilities

* Customize for specific requirements with plug-in based output options

* Separate roles in the enterprise with granular permissions

* Support unlimited users anywhere with web based design
