Brooklyn, New York (PRWEB) July 27, 2012
MyLockoutTags.com, a leading online tag provider, has launched a new line of energy source identification tags to assist workers in understanding hazardous energy sources. If handled improperly, unmarked energy sources in the workplace can pose a serious threat to employees, causing serious harm or even death, especially in lockout/tagout procedures.
Energy sources carry a number of risks that most commonly affect workers who service machines and equipment. According to OSHA’s website, compliance with lockout/tagout protocol prevents an estimated 50,000 injuries and 120 deaths annually. Tagout procedure requires the use of energy source identification tags to protect against potential hazards, such as electrocution, severe burns, or exposure to dangerous chemicals.
MyLockoutTags’ new product line offers tags that indicate how a machine gets its energy. Each type of energy source has a tag, from electric and gas to pneumatic and hydraulic. Knowing the risks involved with the use of each energy source is important to maintaining industry safety. “In a number of different industries, tags that identify energy sources are crucial to complying with OSHA standards and regulations,” said Rivka Fogel, Manager at MyLockoutTags. “Any business with machinery will especially benefit from these new tags.”
All of the tags come with a graphic, code, and unique coloring that alert workers of the type of energy source used. Tags are available with and without a text explanation of the graphic. The tags each come in two different sizes.
The new tags are available in both a durable laminated adhesive vinyl and a long-lasting rigid plastic. For increased ease of use, each of the tags also comes with a pre-drilled hole large enough for a piece of wire or other means of attachment.
