Probe is proudly an authorised distributor in South Africa and Africa for Master Lock products. Master Lock is recognised around the world as the authentic, enduring name in safety products and padlocks.
Numerous industries from mining, to power utilities and manufacturing, need to operate potentially hazardous equipment in order to get the job done. These industries are required by a globally-accepted safety standard (the 29CFR 1910.17), to use lockout-tagout (LO/TO) or lock and tag methods as a safety procedure. Probe, through the provision of Master Lock’s line of safety lockout/tagout products is ideally positioned to assist companies in meeting the standard’s requirements.
