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. 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.
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.
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.
Hold tags display critical directions to control processes and activities and avoid accidents, similarly to lockout tags. The bold header word, “HOLD” is supplemented with detailed pre-printed text and areas for operators and technicians to write in detailed information, times, dates and names. This can all be sealed with a protective, clear, self-laminating cover to make the information permanent.
Hold tags are made of rigid vinyl with 0.25” diameter brass grommets. These tags 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.
