(2) You must make sure a tagout device, when used with an energy-isolating device that can be locked out, is fastened to the device at the same point a lock would have been attached.
(3) You must make sure a tagout device that cannot be attached directly to an energy-isolating device is located:
(a) As close as safely possible to the energy-isolating device; and
(b) In a position that is immediately obvious to anyone attempting to operate the energy-isolating device.
