Safety Tags

When considering your workplace safety program, it is important to remember that communication is key. Safety tags are a great means for communicating safety at the workplace. They provide warning or safety instructions for industrial workers or members of the public who may be exposed to hazards. 

According to OSHA guidelines, safety tags are to be used until the indicated hazard is removed or the hazardous operation is completed (OSHA 29 CFR 1910.145)

Safety Tags can be made from many different materials such as card, paper, plastic and other materials. They can also come in various sizes and shapes and are most commonly used temporarily.

To keep employees' attention on the tags, and to help them understand that the information conveyed by the tags is still relevant, replace worn or outdated tags regularly. Keep tags looking fresh at all time.

6 Common Types of Safety Warning Labels 

Lockout Tags 

Lockout/tagout is a system that prevents machinery from moving or running until it has been de-energized, making it safe for workers to perform maintenance work on it. Workers should be trained over the lockout/tagout procedure to protect themselves from injury.

  • Hang lockout tag when working on equipment and machinery.
  • Lockout tag is required to mark and identify the lockout situation.

Repair Safety Tags

Repair Tags 

Out Of Service, Equipment Needs Repair, Repairs Required are some examples of alert messages on repair tags. Repair Tags can be used to notify employees of scheduled maintenance on items, areas, or equipment. Maintainers can easily identify which items need to be repaired and ensure that they are not used until the repair is completed.  

Inspection and Status Record Tags 

Record equipment and machinery inspection, servicing, and maintenance activities over time with inspection and status record safety tags. The workers are better informed about equipment, and audits can be performed more efficiently. OSHA-style tags are the most widely recognized design format in the industry.

Hazmat Tags

Hazmat Tags 

A hazmat tag is a warning sign used to indicate the hazard of the material being transported and associated dangers. The EPA and other regulatory agencies have established classifications for various types of waste. Hazardous Materials Tags denote these classifications and associated precautions for handling, as well as what Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is required per classification. 

National Fire Protection Association tags display the NFPA Diamond Diagram which uses four colors: red, blue, white and yellow to indicate health hazards, flammability, reactivity and special hazards.

Confined Space Tags 

Confined space Tags help prevent unauthorized personnel from entering a confined space restricted area. Confined space is a place which is substantially enclosed (though not always entirely) where serious injury can occur from lack of oxygen. A study by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) found that between 1992 and 1998, an average of 90 people died each year from injuries sustained while working in confined spaces. Most of these incidents are due to oxygen deficiency or asphyxiation caused by deadly gases. 

Hang or attach a Confined Space Tag to the entrance or access point of any area where workers may enter for 29 CFR 1910.146 compliance.
