SMART Procedures: LOTO Procedure Development and Management App

SMART Procedures is available on the Apple App Store, Google Play and the Chrome Web Store

San Francisco, California – February 16, 2016 – Available today, the SMART Procedures app streamlines lockout/tagout procedure development for iPhone, iPad, Android, laptop and desktop users. It allows users to work right at the equipment, adding steps and taking photos with their device’s native camera. Features include:

  • Unlimited steps and photos
  • In-app QR Code generator and scanner
  • Full color PDFs, and
  • User access management so only authorized personnel can approve LOTO procedures.



Lockout/tagout procedures safeguard workers during servicing and maintenance of energized equipment. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations require employers to develop, document, implement and enforce energy control procedures, but most organizations don’t have time to get lockout/tagout procedures done or the budget to hire consultants to do the job. A typical LOTO procedure takes 2 hours to develop. For an organization with 150 pieces of equipment that means 300 hours of staff time or about $40,000 for a consultant. And that doesn’t even count the time it takes to keep up with procedure and equipment changes.

SMART Procedures addresses this problem by giving employers the tool they need to get in compliance and keep their workers safe efficiently and affordably. The interface is easy to use, so there’s no learning curve. The app even comes with editable pre-filled steps that ensure the user includes all of the required steps.

Annual subscriptions start at under $17 per month for unlimited procedures. Visit for more information and to sign up.

SMART Procedures was developed by DKF Solutions Group LLC, a safety and risk management services firm founded in 2008.
