Some critical safety tagging systems include:
Inspection tags: While machinery needs routine maintenance to ensure safety, regular inspections are important too. Inspections reduce the chance of equipment failure in the workplace and aim to spot any potential problems before they cause a threat.
Made to identify the piece of equipment, location of inspection, dates, and personnel responsible for each check-up, Inspection Tags allow you to record everything needed.
These tags are often used for the inspection of ladders and lifting equipment, or for ATEX Inspections.
Isolation tags: Isolation Tags are used to clearly identify equipment or systems that are in an isolated state, in order to prevent accidental energization during maintenance or repair work.
Isolation tags place the responsibility onto a named individual and encourage awareness and compliance with safety procedures. This eliminates downtime by facilitating effective communication among workforces.
Process management tags: Effective communication is essential for ensuring the safety of staff and the security of machinery. Team members need to be aware of the progress of each stage of the process and know which steps have already been completed safely. This is where multi-part Process Management Tags play a crucial role.
By using multi-part tags like Flange Tags and Hire Tags, a clear and highly visible record of the inspection or management process can be communicated. These tags provide an efficient way to convey the current status of the process visually.
Lockout tags: Machinery plays a significant role in the day-to-day operations of many organizations, and regular maintenance is crucial to keep them running smoothly. Whether it is a pump in an oil rig or a conveyor belt in a production line, eventually, equipment needs to be shut down for servicing.
Lockout Tags are used in such situations to inform others that the machinery is not in use and is being serviced. Lockout Tags clearly inform everyone that the machinery is not to be turned on, which is important to avoid potential harm to the maintenance team or anyone else who may operate the equipment.
Identification tags: When it comes to creating a safe work environment, having critical information readily available to your team is so important.
Identification Tags are often relied on to carry information vital to the workforce's safety.
