Lockout Tagout 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 (LOTO) procedure to protect workers from dangerous releases of power or sudden re-energizing of machinery during routine maintenance or repair operations. Lockout tags have a clear, bold graphic appearance with standard industry legends such as, “Caution – Do Not Operate”, “Danger – Do Not Operate” and, “Danger – Equipment Locked Out. My life is on the Line” to clearly convey the critical safety information. 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.

Requirements for Lockout/Tagout Tags
Lockout/tagout (LOTO) requirements for tags are clearly defined by both ANSI and OSHA. LEM has been manufacturing these tags for decades, and all of our products meet or exceed these standards. According to OSHA, lockout tags must:
- Be durable enough to withstand workplace conditions, even when used near corrosive components or in wet environments.
- Meet standardized color, shape, and size requirements, be clearly legible, and offer clear instructions to employees.
- Be substantial enough to reduce the chances that the tag would be accidentally removed.
- Be labeled to identify the specific employee who is authorized to both apply and remove the tag.
Hold tags display critical directions to control processes and activities and avoid accidents, similarly to lock out-tag out tags. The bold header word, “HOLD” is supplemented with detailed pre-printed text and areas for operators and technicians to write in specific information, times, dates, and names. This can all be sealed with a protective, clear, self-laminating cover to make the information permanent.
Features of Hold Tags
Hold tags are made of rigid vinyl with 0.25” diameter brass grommets. These tags are made to withstand moisture, dirt and grease and can be written on with pencil, ballpoint pen, or permanent marker. LEM’s Hold tags meet OSHA requirements for accident prevention and are up-to-date with the most current ANSI Z535.5 recommendations for color and design. Stock tag size is 3-1/4″ x 6″. They are packaged in sets of 25 identical tags and include 25 heavy duty nylon ties.
