La consignation est la suite chronologique d'opérations indispensables et réglementées, qui permettent d'assurer la sécurité du personnel et du matériel avant d'intervenir sur un appareillage électrique, une installation électrique, ou simplement un circuit électrique. En effet, seuls les travaux effectués hors tension peuvent protéger intégralement des risques d'électrocution, à condition que l'on soit sûr que toute tension soit effectivement supprimée et qu'elle le reste : c'est le but de la consignation. En France, la consignation électrique d'un ouvrage est régie par la norme NF C18-510.
Avant de suivre les étapes ci-dessous vous devez : vous équiper d'EPI (équipement de protection individuel) des gants isolant, de casque isolant, de masque anti-UV, ne pas porter d'objet métallique sur soi, d'EIS (équipement de sécurité individuel) tapis isolant, des outils isolés 1000 V, un cadenas de consignation, une pancarte ou un macaron de consignation, et un VAT et également d'ECS (équipement collectif de sécurité) balise pour balisage panneau d'avertissement et nappes isolantes pour les composés nus sous tension proches de vous.

Lockout-tagout (LOTO) or lock and tag is a safety procedure which is used in industry and research settings to ensure that dangerous machines are properly shut off and not able to be started up again prior to the completion of maintenance or servicing work. It requires that hazardous energy sources be "isolated and rendered inoperative" before work is started on the equipment in question. The isolated power sources are then locked and a tag is placed on the lock identifying the worker who has placed it. The worker then holds the key for the lock ensuring that only he or she can remove the lock and start the machine. This prevents accidental startup of a machine while it is in a hazardous state or while a worker is in direct contact with it.
Folding lockout hasp, allowing six padlocks to lock out one device.

LOTO procedures for the control of hazardous energy provide employers with a way to prevent electrical mishaps and ensure that workers will be kept safe from the de-energized equipment while performing necessary tasks. Once the tasks are completed, workers can unlock/untag the de-energized piece of equipment and return it to service following a specific procedure.

It will also lock the object, so other users cannot access it until it is unlocked.
Le verrouillage empêchera les autres utilisateurs d'y accéder jusqu'à ce qu'il soit déverrouillé.

La demande en produits de condamnation pour tableau BT ne cesse de progresser et c'est dans ce contexte que CATU a lancé son nouveau condamnateur multiple adapté à tous les condamnateurs de disjoncteurs du marché.
The demand for locking products for low-voltage distribution boards continues to rise and is the background to CATU's decision to launch its new multiple locker adapted to all the circuit breaker lockers on the market.

There are two potential options when considering a mechanical safety system for switchgear applications. The choice is between a trapped key interlocking system or a padlock-based lock-out / tag-out (LOTO) system. Both systems:
• Provide a method of isolating switchgear.
• Allow safe personnel access when maintenance of machinery is required.
LOTO systems don’t provide the same level of protection as trapped key interlocking.

As well as developing and identifying format written procedures and training employees, Lockout Tagout Safety Ltd offers a selection of products including padlocks, tags, signs and lockout devices to help you implement lockout procedures for many different energy sources, including: electricity, pneumatics, steam, gas, liquids and many others.

• Allow safe personnel access when maintenance of machinery is required.
• Are available in full stainless steel or brass versions.
• Offer a comprehensive range of products with different forms and sizes to suit the needs of the equipment concerned.
However, in terms of safety, trapped key interlocks (TKIs) offer significantly higher levels of protection compared with LOTO.

neutral  Daryo: rather "locking device"? I very much doubt they would use some ordinary padlock ...

  -> This is the most frequent locking mechnism for isolating a switchgear.
