With WinSTETS, maintaining a safe and efficient plant has never been easier.
WinSTETS takes the vital, yet exceedingly time-consuming task of safety tagging
and by automating it, makes it faster, more manageable and more error-free than
Our customers tell us that WinSTETS is absolutely
the easiest to use, most user customizable Lockout/Tagout system on the
market. There simply is nothing out there that compares.
REDUCE OUTAGE PREPARATION TIME
With the standard tagout capabilities of WinSTETS, you'll dramatically reduce
outage preparation time. Now whenever outages occur, WinSTETS can provide you
with a comprehensive equipment status report and easily print whatever safety
labels and permits (such as Confined Space) you need. Not only will you save countless man hours in maintenance, but
you'll also save thousands of dollars in nonproductive time. Also, since
WinSTETS predefines your tagging needs, preparation of safety tags is
implemented in a more controlled environment so there is far less chance for
BE PREPARED FOR A VISIT FROM OSHA
WinSTETS is your strategic tool in complying with
OSHA 1910.0147 (Control of hazardous energy - Lockout/Tagout) and OSHA
1910.0146 (Permit required Confined Space). Both of these regulations
are consistently in OSHA's top 25 list
of violations. OSHA notwithstanding, WinSTETS simply helps you run a safer
plant... avoid accidents, and reduce human error.
LEVERAGE YOUR LOCKOUT / TAGOUT / LINEUP MANHOURS
Don't just print tags! Make the most of your efforts in maintaining a
safe workplace. By making use of the advanced features of WinSTETS, you
can easily keep track of all your plant equipment and know the status of
critical systems and components. WinSTETS can track the entire life-cycle of the
lockout / tagout process as well as making use of ad-hoc updates to the master
equipment database. WinSTETS provides full audit trails, operator logs, equipment line-up lists and
detailed Management Reports that provide you with timely information on the
status of all plant equipment.
based with Local Area Network Compatibility
WinSTETS is fully compatible with Microsoft Windows
NT, Windows 2000 and
Windows XP. WinSTETS has been fully tested under the Microsoft Windows NT
network operating systems as well as other well known LAN systems.
easy to use screens
All WinSTETS displays conform to generally accepted standards for Windows
based graphical user interfaces.
context sensitive on line help
Standard Windows based HELP screens with interactive, active graphics
use of pop-up pick lists
WinSTETS makes extensive use of pick-menus and drop-down lists to minimize
keystrokes and make the most of available information in the database.
Master Equipment List
The WinSTETS database serves as a complete and extensively detailed master
equipment list for all of your plant components. This enables WinSTETS to
not only administer your tagout/lockout program but also enables plant
change control management and tracking of all equipment status.
Internal Security and logging of all database changes
Access to all WinSTETS functions are governed by user access lists and
password protection. All significant database transactions are entered
into an event log which enables reporting for change management and
accountability. Event logging also includes manually entered Operator
Logs and notes.
for multiple Tag Types, Lockout / Tagout rules and Nomenclature
User definition of different, multiple types and colors of safety tags is
easily accomplished during initial program setup. Tagging rules which
define tag type conflict checking is also easily user-entered during
WinSTETS setup. All important tagout nomenclature is user definable for
all displays and reports.
for physical lock management
WinSTETS has the option of adding lock tracking for those devices which
require positive lockout.
TagOut work sheets and TagOut Labels
Both placement and removal of tags can be augmented by detailed TagOut
worksheets. WinSTETS also prints TagOut labels which help ensure
legibility and accountability. All printed output from WinSTETS is
generated using Crystal ReportsŪ , a widely used, user friendly Windows
based reporting subsystem. Users can also attach their own documents
(ie: doc, xls or pdf type files) to any TagOut, allowing you to utilize existing procedures and
and Confined Space Permits
Augment your safety tagging program with the use of WinSTET's Hazard
Permits. WinSTETS allows custom building of printed permits which can
identify hazardous conditions, control measures and any miscellaneous
information which is required for safe work in confined spaces or other
limiting work environments.
alignment worksheets, an optional feature
WinSTETS allows definition of, and tracking of system/equipment alignment
procedures often used to alter plant operating conditions, meet tech spec
requirements or perform safety inspections. This adds another level of
functionality in maintaining the current status of your plant equipment.
for multiple Plant Operating Modes
WinSTETS allows definition of a number of plant operating modes. Each mode
of operation can have associated with it different operating
characteristics for each equipment record in the master database. This
allows tracking of normal vs. off-normal equipment disposition based on
plant operating mode. For example, valves and breakers will have
"normal" positions (closed, on, off, etc.) when in one mode of
plant operation (such as "on-line") and different
"normal" positions when in some other mode of operation (such as
of service tracking
Equipment records as well as pre-defined equipment lists (ie. alignment
lists) allow tracking of in-service/out-of-service status based on
(predefined) TagOuts and Group Tagging
Pre-defined lockout/tagout lists let you create tagout
"templates" for more efficient safety tagging. These templates
can then be used to isolate equipment while greatly reducing the chance
for human error.
Group tagging makes the best use of equipment outage time by allowing more
than one person or department to sign-on to a tagout workorder.
By making use of pre-defined lockout/tagout
lists, WinSTETS can check on the availability of pre-existing TagOuts to allow you to take advantage of a Group Tagging situation.
of single TAGS (ALARA), an optional feature
ALARA - As Low
As Reasonably Achievable
- A program to reduce occupational radiation exposure at nuclear facilities
in the United States and abroad.
This WinSTETS feature supports Nuclear Generating Stations that wish to limit the amount of
radiation exposure to their technicians. WinSTETS automatically allows
an arbitrary number of workers (working under the same or different work
order numbers) to share a single physical tag. WinSTETS provides full
status and reporting capabilities of who is sharing each tag.
This feature is also useful for those non-nuclear stations that simply
want to take advantage of tag sharing.
Signatures, an optional feature
Allows full accountability by mandating that all signatory fields be
validated against a pre-authorized list, and requiring that all entries be
authenticated by the individuals unique password. This prevents
"Joe" from electronically signing for "Fred" because Joe
won't know Fred's unique password.
Database, an optional feature
In the standard version, WinSTETS uses DBF database files to store data.
For those customers wishing to take advantage of an enterprise database, the
WinSTETS Enterprise Database option allows WinSTETS to use a SQL Server back end database.
suite of Management Reports
Summary and Detail reports for Tagouts, Standard Tagouts, and Equipment
Alignments. Component Off-Normal reports, Component Status, Events Log,
Master Equipment Lists, ... and more. All reports are generated using
Crystal ReportsŪ , a widely used, user friendly Windows based reporting
subsystem. Reports and tag label formats are easily user configured to
meet your own needs.
- Fully end-user
WinSTETS was designed from the ground up to be completely user
customizable. Starting with the ability to move or completely delete
unneeded fields from your Tagout screen, you can create multiple screen
appearances from very simple, to more complex, and assign them to
individual users. In addition, you have complete control over
nomenclature (what things are called) as well as the tagout lifecycle,
approvals, permits, externally linked documents (MS Word, Excel, PDF,
etc), tag types, tagged position definitions, etc..
