Tagout is used to ensure that maintenance work can be carried out in a safe way. You can create Tagout records and add Assets, Work Orders, and Locations to a Tagout.
Setup for Tagout is completed.
A Tagout is a safety measure to ensure that maintenance work can be carried out in a safe way on machinery and other types of equipment.
Safe Work Managers can work with Tagouts from the Safe Work Role Center.
When you create a Tagout, you can attach Work Orders, Assets, and Asset Locations to it.
The Tagout status is automatically updated, depending on the actions taken on the Tagout. Here is a status overview:
|Status||Description / related action|
|Draft||The Tagout is created.|
|Awaiting||The Tagout is approved.|
|Active||The Tagout is mounted in the work area.|
|Finished||The Tagout is removed from the work area.|
Refer to the test case below for a step-by-step procedure on how to create a Tagout.
It is possible to copy a Tagout. This is useful if you want to use the same Tagout for another maintenance job.
The screenshot below shows an example of a Tagout.

In the Lines section, select the Type field on an empty line, and select type "Asset" or "Work Order" or "Location".
In the No. field, select an Asset or a Work Order or a Location, depending on your selection in the Type field. The Description field on the line is automatically filled out.
If you want to add more lines to the Tagout, select Manage > New Line in the Lines section, and repeat steps 9-10.
