Additional Training (Tagout System)

What additional training is required when tagout systems are used?

Employers must train employees in the following limitations of tags
[29 CFR 1910.147(c)(7)(ii)]:
  • Tags are essentially warning devices affixed to energy isolating devices and do not provide the physical restraint on those devices that is provided by a lock
    [29 CFR 1910.147(c)(7)(ii)(A)].
  • When a tag is attached to an energy isolating means, it is not to be removed without authorization of the authorized person responsible for it, and it is never to be bypassed, ignored, or otherwise defeated [29 CFR 1910.147(c)(7)(ii)(B)].
  • Tags and their means of attachment must be made of materials which will withstand the environmental conditions encountered in the workplace
    [29 CFR 1910.147(c)(7)(ii)(D)].
  • Tags may evoke a false sense of security and their meaning needs to be understood as part of the overall energy control program
    [29 CFR 1910.147(c)(7)(ii)(E)].
  • Tags must be securely attached to energy isolating devices so that they cannot be inadvertently or accidentally detached during use
    [29 CFR 1910.147(c)(7)(ii)(F)].
