What should lockout tagout tags have on them?

Lockout tagout tags must always have a “Danger” warning label. They will typically be white with black and/or bright red print on them. The tags must also have space for the following information:
  • The name of the employee who installed the lock
  • When the lock was installed
  • Why the lock was installed

This information and the strategic placement of the tag are essential to making sure that the lockout tagout system works as effectively as it can.
