Lockout tagout tags should always be placed with personal safety locks. The tags will let other employees know why a particular machine has been de-energized and is thus an important part of making sure that no machine will be re-energized too early. Information on the tags will also let others know which employees are currently working on a particular machine.
There are also other places with which lockout tagout tags can be attached:
- Facility areas
- Circuit breakers
- Battery backups
