Lock Out Tag Out Tags

Lockout Tagout Tags are a critical warning device to alert employees about machinery that is “locked out” of operation for repair or maintenance. These tags are a component of the Lockout Tagout procedure to protect workers from dangerous releases of power or sudden re-energizing of machinery during routine maintenance or repair operations.  Electrocution, burns, crushed, lacerated, fractured and even amputated body parts are some of the devastating injuries incurred by accidents involving sudden releases of energy.  A steam valve is automatically opened during piping repairs because lockout tagout tags were not implemented before maintenance began to warn of the danger.  A conveyor belts become jammed and unexpectedly resume flow when the jam is cleared but the power was never shut off with lockout tagout tags to alert others that a worker was repairing the line.

LEM’s lockout tags conform to both ANSI (Z535) and OSHA (29 CFR 1910) standards.  Lockout Tags are available in several types of material construction and can be constructed for repeated use.  Bilingual lockout tags are designed multi-lingual translations as well as pictograms to help employees, who have diverse language backgrounds, avoid injuries.

The heavy-duty, reusable, super-laminated LST style is constructed from 15 Mil PVC for the most challenging work conditions. These tags are over-laminated on both the front and the back faces to protect the graphics from grease, water and extreme temperatures. The LST tag withstands 80 lbs. of pull force. LST tags have a matte writeable surface that accepts grease pencil which can be wiped off for reuse of the tag. Tags are suitable for indoor as well as outdoor use.  Tags can have metal eyelets or non-conductive plastic eyelets for added strength and durability.

LEM’s LLWT style Lockout Tag is constructed from rigid 15 Mil PVC and withstands up to 50 lbs. of pull force. These tags are suitable for indoor and temporary outdoor use. LLWT tags accept pen, pencil and permanent marker. The LLWT style is also available with a clear self-laminating polyester cover to seal and protect hand-written comments.
