We have 3 standard types of safety tags: Classic Industrial, All Plastic, and Sturdy Cardboard. The Classic Industrial Safety Tags are extremely rugged and consist of a durable paper stock which is then rigid laminated, with an overall thickness of 30 pt. This is approximately the same thickness as most credit cards. These tags set the standard for the Lockout/Tagout industry and are the heaviest and most durable option available on the market. The All Plastic safety tags are made of plastic (vinyl) and are 12.5 pt thick, similar to most plastic wallet calendar cards. These tags are economical and lighter gauge, but still satisfy the OSHA 1910.147 requirement of 50 lbs pull test when the metal eyelet is used. Our Sturdy Cardboard safety tags are paper card stock only, and are 13 pt total thickness. Cardboard tags are for short term use or indoor use only.
Most of our standard Safety Tags are in stock, ready for immediate shipment! Custom tags may ship as quickly as needed, usually in just a few days. Our job is to keep you safe - tell us what turnaround you need, and we will make it happen!
Q-Tags® are Sturdy Cardboard tags that come with safety-tag shaped rigid laminating pouches. Use an Idesco brand (or other) desk-top lamination machine to turn paper tags into durable Lockout/Tagout safety tags. Q-Tags® are the perfect solution if you want to write on a safety tag, apply a photo, or personalize it in any manner you’d like, and then laminate it to protect it, with gloss or matte lamination. Sold in packs of 100, these tags are versatile, durable, and economical, and satisfy OSHA’s 1910.147 Lockout/Tagout requirements.
All of our Safety Tags come standard with a writeable matte finish which allows the user to make pencil notations and then erase and reuse the tags in like-new condition.
Our Classic Industrial and All Plastic Safety Tags each have the industry’s strongest and most durable zinc metal grommets with 3/8” hole. Brass grommets are also available. These large grommets will allow you to slip the tag onto your 1/4" hasp lockout or padlock, and the extra-large metal flanges on both sides provide additional pull-strength. Also available are 1/4" eyelets and fiber patches.
Our Classic Industrial Safety Tags are designed for indoor and outdoor use and are resistant to most solvents, chemicals, and the rigors of the most demanding industrial environments. The printing is completely protected inside rigid plastic, sealed from all external elements. Our printing and the rigid plastic are treated with UV-resistant coatings to reduce the risk of fading and to extend the life expectancy of Safety Tags that are used outdoors and in extremely sunny conditions. Our All Plastic Safety Tags also hold up in rugged environments, although they are better suited to indoor use. Idesco Safety Tags satisfy CFR 1910.150 Signs and Tags designations for color, tag size, lettering size and tag shape.
We provide Custom Safety Tags to manufacturers and distributors around the world. Custom Safety Tags are tailored to your particular purpose. They may include specific materials and custom designs, special warnings or headlines of your choice, corporate logos, and these may be of any color, shape, or size.
Our Custom Safety Tags may also be personalized for each of your operators, or consecutively numbered for inventory and staff controls. Certain materials may also be perforated so you can tear off a unique identifier and keep a record in the office of all the Safety Tags being used in the field.
