Work Permit with LOTO Process Flowchart in SAP PM

Work Permit with LOTO Process Flow in SAP PM

Picture Description

This flowchart details the process of managing work permits with Lockout/Tagout (LOTO) in SAP Plant Maintenance (PM). It ensures that maintenance activities are conducted safely by isolating energy sources before work begins.

Work Permit with LOTO Procedure in SAP PM: In the context of SAP Plant Maintenance (SAP PM), the work permit with Lockout/Tagout (LOTO) procedure is an important safety mechanism to ensure the safe execution of maintenance activities. The work permit with LOTO procedure helps to control hazardous energy sources and prevent unintended activation of equipment during maintenance work.

Lockout/Tagout (LOTO) Procedure in SAP PM: The Lockout/Tagout (LOTO) procedure is a critical component of the work permit in SAP PM. LOTO is a safety procedure used to ensure that dangerous machines or equipment are properly shut off and not able to be started up again prior to the completion of maintenance work.

The Work Permit with LOTO process flowchart in SAP PM shown in pictures involves the following steps:

  1. Maintenance Order 📝: The process starts with a maintenance order requiring a work permit.
  2. Raise Permit Request from Work Order (Maintenance Executor) 🚀: The maintenance executor raises a permit request based on the work order.
  3. Approve Permit (Permit Approver) ✔️: The permit approver reviews and approves the permit request.
  4. Request for LOTO (Maintenance Executor) 🔒: The maintenance executor requests Lockout/Tagout to isolate the energy sources.
  5. Is LO Status Applied in LOTO? 🛠️
    • A check is performed to ensure that the Lockout (LO) status is applied.
    • If yes, proceed to issuing the permit.
    • If no, reapply LO status.
  6. Issue Permit (Permit Issuer) 📜: The permit issuer issues the work permit after confirming that the LO status is applied.
  7. Execute Maintenance Work (Maintenance Executor) 🔧: The maintenance executor carries out the maintenance work as per the issued permit and the LOTO safety procedures.
  8. Permit Extension Required? 🔄: A decision is made on whether an extension is needed for the permit.
  9. Request for Extension (Maintenance Executor) : If an extension is required, the maintenance executor requests it.
  10. Return and Close Permit (Maintenance Executor) 🔒: If no extension is required, the permit is returned and closed by the maintenance executor. If the extension is granted, continue with the extended permit.
  11. Is TO Status Applied in LOTO? 🔄:
    • Check if the Tagout (TO) status is applied in LOTO.
    • If yes, proceed to confirm the work order.
    • If no, reapply TO status and then confirm the work order.
  12. Confirm Work Order (Maintenance Executor) : The maintenance executor confirms the completion of the work order.
  13. Technically Complete Work Order and Close Notification (Maintenance Executor) 📂: The maintenance order is technically completed, and the notification is closed by the maintenance executor.

The integration of the work permit and LOTO procedure in SAP PM helps to ensure that maintenance activities are carried out in a safe and controlled manner, minimizing the risk of accidents or injuries to the maintenance personnel.
