When can you use tags only in lockout tagout?

lockout tagout tags April 30, 2022 1 min read

In certain cases, it may be acceptable to only use tags instead of a combination of locks and tags. However, this is only acceptable if there is no possible way to physically install a lock on the machine.

As long as it’s possible to lock out a piece of equipment, tagout should always be done with lockout. While lockout is safer, the combination of locks and tags is essential in making sure that employees are protected against hazards in the workplace.
