A prominent warning device, such as a tag and a means of attachment, which can be securely fastened to an energy isolating device in accordance with an established procedure, to indicate that the energy isolating device and the equipment (or machine) being controlled may not be operated until the tagout device is removed.The described verification tag does not meet the definitional requirements for a tagout device as its purpose is to simply indicate that isolation or de-energization of the machine or equipment has been effectively accomplished. It appears that your primary means of energy control are lockout devices, which, in your scenario, positively secure the energy isolating devices in a safe position.
