WAC 296-803-60010

Provide additional training if you use tagout devices.

You must make sure employees are trained in the following:
(1) Tags are warning devices and do not provide the same level of physical restraint as a lock.
(2) When attached to energy-isolating devices, tags are not to be:
(a) Removed without the approval of the authorized person responsible for it; or
(b) Bypassed, ignored, or otherwise defeated.
(3) Tags need to be legible and understandable to be effective.
(4) Tags may evoke a false sense of security.
(5) The meaning of tags needs to be understood as part of the overall energy control program.
(6) Tags and their means of attachment must be:
(a) Securely attached to energy-isolating devices so they cannot be inadvertently or accidentally detached; and
(b) Made of materials that will withstand the environmental conditions they will be exposed to.
