ESOP 2 LOCKING PROCEDURES, PROVISION OF KEY SAFES


AND ISSUE OF KEYS

1. OBJECTIVES

1.1 To specify standards for the secure locking arrangements for all power
stations and substations to prevent unauthorised access.
1.2 To specify standards for the secure locking of HV and associated LV
APPARATUS, both in the service position and when it has been ISOLATED,
to allow safe working under ELECTRICAL SAFETY DOCUMENTS. I.e.
ELECTRICAL PERMITS-TO-WORK, SANCTIONS-FOR-TEST,
LIMITATIONS-OF-ACCESS or ELECTRICAL ISOLATION/DE-
ISOLATION CERTIFICATES.
1.3 To monitor the issue of keys for STANDARD ELECTRICAL PADLOCKS,
SAFETY PADLOCKS and KEY SAFES to persons authorised to receive
them.

2. STANDARD ELECTRICAL LOCKS

2.1 A master slave system or similar double key system shall be adopted in all
PDO Area.
2.2 The system adopted shall allow for at least two levels of STANDARD
ELECTRICAL PADLOCKS/LOCKS to be available for use so that access
can be limited to persons appointed under the ESR.
2.3 At present, the following are the STANDARD ELECTRICAL
PADLOCKS/LOCKS used by Electrical Infrastructure Department:
All locks shall be UNION make.To obtain the locks from Union an
authorization letter from PDO required.

3. LOCKING OF SUBSTATIONS AND POWER STATIONS

3.1 STANDARD ELECTRICAL PADLOCKS/LOCKS livel 2 (HMKN/EB) shall


be fitted to the access doors or gates for all indoor and outdoor substations
and those of power stations.
3.2 In those substations and power stations where there are compounds or
enclosures containing exposed LIVE HV conductors, the higher level-1
CCRK/OHL of STANDARD ELECTRICAL PADLOCK/LOCK shall be used
to secure the doors or gates leading to that compound or enclosure.

4. LOCKING OF SWITCHGEAR

4.1 HV switchgear in indoor substations shall not normally have its lockable parts
(ie., racking handles, panel doors, control handles etc.) locked when in the
service position, as only persons appointed under the ESR will have access to
the switchgear.
4.2 If persons not appointed under the ESR are to have access to the HV
switchgear, then the SAEP shall decide if it is prudent to fit STANDARD
ELECTRICAL PADLOCKS to the switchgear's lockable parts.
4.3 Emergency trip buttons or switches shall be left unlocked, unless the AEP
responsible for operation of the switchgear in that indoor substation requires
them to be secured.
4.4 Each lockable part of HV switchgear in outdoor substations shall be locked
with a STANDARD ELECTRICAL PADLOCK when in the service position.
4.5 Each mechanism of all manually operated HV disconnectors or circuits
breakers, mounted on poles or structures outside substations, etc., shall be
locked with a STANDARD ELECTRICAL PADLOCK when in the service
position.

Version 7.0 Electrical Safety Operating Procedures

5. SAFETY PADLOCKS

5.1 SAFETY PADLOCKS shall be of a non standard or unique type and be


supplied with only one key for each lock (ie, no master key shall be supplied
or be available).
Each such lock shall be marked with a clearly readable individual number.
5.2 SAFETY PADLOCKS shall be kept available for issue to SAEPs, AEP (+) s,
AEPs, CESPs and CEPs for their use when carrying out SWITCHING, prior
to work being carried out on either HV or LV APPARATUS.
5.3 These SAFETY PADLOCKS shall be used in accordance with the ESR, on
points of ISOLATION for APPARATUS that is subject to an ELECTRICAL
SAFETY DOCUMENT.

6. PROVISION OF KEY SAFES

6.1 KEY SAFES with union padlocks shall be provided at all power stations and
Area Offices.
KEY SAFES shall be provided at all substations unless they are within a
convenient distance of KEY SAFES fitted in higher voltage substations (eg,
132kV), power stations or Area Offices.
6.2 Area Offices may also provide portable KEY SAFES which may be taken and
used at remote sites (eg, for use on HV motor circuits).

7. DESIGN AND USE OF KEY SAFES

7.1 All KEY SAFES shall be used in accordance with the ESR for the secure
retention of all SAFETY PADLOCK keys used to lock means of
ISOLATION, EARTHING or other safety devices.
7.2 KEY SAFES shall be fitted, or be capable of being fitted, with at least two
unique locks with keys.
7.3 A unique lock shall be 'locked' and the key given to a person issued with an
ELECTRICAL SAFETY DOCUMENT.

8. ISSUE OF KEYS

8.1 The level of STANDARD ELECTRICAL PADLOCK/LOCK keys shall be


issued to SAEPs, AEP(+)s, AEPs, CESPs and CEPs according to their duties.
8.2 Some APs may need to be issued with the lower level of STANDARD
ELECTRICAL PADLOCK/LOCK keys depending on the specific duties they
have been appointed to carry out.

shall sign a key Receipt form.
Such keys shall be returned when the recipient leaves the PDO Area or when
his authorisation is withdrawn.
8.4 The Area Operations Electrical Supervisor shall maintain a record of all such
keys that he is responsible for issuing.

9. APPROVED SECURITY METHODS FOR THE SECURING OF


SAFETY PADLOCK KEYS WHEN KEY SAFES ARE NOT
AVAILABLE

9.1 ESR Rule 5.3(b) requires that keys of SAFETY PADLOCKS used for locking
points of ISOLATION shall be placed in a KEY SAFE or secured by another
APPROVED security method. Ie, for long transmission lines the key for the
far end can be placed in a far end key box and the box key retained by an
AEP.
If KEY SAFES are not readily available, or the work is to be only of short
duration, either of the methods detailed in 9.2 and 9.3 are APPROVED for
use.
9.2 The SAEP or AEP(+) issuing an ELECTRICAL SAFETY DOCUMENT shall
retain on his person the SAFETY PADLOCK keys used to lock the points of
ISOLATION, etc., for the APPARATUS to be worked on, until the
ELECTRICAL SAFETY DOCUMENT is cleared and cancelled by the same
SAEP or AEP(+).
9.3 The SAEP or AEP(+) issuing an ELECTRICAL SAFETY DOCUMENT shall
apply two SAFETY PADLOCKS to each point of ISOLATION.
One of the two SAFETY PADLOCK keys shall be issued to and retained by
the recipient of the ELECTRICAL SAFETY DOCUMENT, the other shall be
retained by the SAEP or AEP(+) until the ELECTRICAL SAFETY
DOCUMENT is cleared and cancelled by the same SAEP or AEP(+).
