Work Order Templates
Limble allows you to create predefined procedures. This can be used to ensure that your employees are following the correct safety protocol. We will use a Lockout/Tag-out procedure to demonstrate how the Work Order Template can be used to define and require a safety procedure.
Lockout/Tag-out procedures are a common safety procedure performed before maintenance on a machine is conducted. It ensures that dangerous machinery will not be able to start up while a technician is performing maintenance on an asset.
Work order templates can be used to ensure that a technician completes the Lockout/Tag-out procedure before performing maintenance.
Navigate to the Manage Assets page by going to Locations > Select Your Location > Assets.
Click on the asset that needs maintenance to pull up the asset card.
In the new window, click on the WOs tab.
Click "Start Work Order." This will pull up the Setup Work Order window.
At the top, click "WO Templates."
Click on your Lockout/Tag-out Procedure template.
Now that the template is selected, you can choose the work order type and assign it to the user completing the maintenance on the machine.
The user will see the Logout/Tag-out procedure before they begin their maintenance task. Following the template will ensure that the task is completed correctly.
Request Approval Function
The Approval Function requires a user to receive a signature of approval for work they have completed. Until this user receives approval, they will be unable to continue with the remainder of the task.
When creating PM Templates, the approval feature can be added into the PM instructions.
Once added, you will be able to choose who the request will be sent to. In addition, if the portion of the task following the approval requests needs to be completed by someone with more experience, you can assign the task to that user once the work has been signed off.
File or Picture Attachment
To ensure that a certain step has been completed, a user can be required to upload an image of the completed task.
In the Lockout/Tag-out procedure discussed before, the user is required to upload an image of the Lock Out Tag on the machine. This ensures that the user completed the whole procedure.
