Limble has several features that can help ensure safety in the workplace. These include Work Order Templates, the Approval Request Function, and File and Picture Attachment.
Work Order Templates
Limble allows you to create predefined procedures. This can be used to insure that your employees are following the correct safety protocol. We will use a Lockout/Tagout procedure to demonstrate how the Work Order Template can be used to define and require a safety procedure.
Lockout/Tagout 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/Tagout procedure before performing maintenance.
Note: For information regarding how to create Work Order Templates, read our article "Work Order Templates and Intermittent Tasks".
Go to the "Manage Assets" tab. Click on the Asset that needs maintenance to pull up it's Asset Card. Under the Asset Card, go to the Work Order Tab.
Click "Start Work Order". This will pull up the "Setup Work Order" window. In the right hand corner of this window, click "WO Templates".
Click on your Lockout/Tagout 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.
Your Technician will see the Logout/Tagout 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 Technician to receive a signature of approval for work they have completed. Until this Technician 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.
For more information regarding the Request Approval Function, read our article "Request Approval Function".
File or Picture Attachment
To ensure that a certain step has been completed, a Technician can be required to upload an image of the completed Task.
In the Lockout/Tagout procedure discussed before, the Technician is required to upload an image of the Lock Out Tag on the machine. This ensures that the Technician completed the whole procedure.
