Tag moveable equipment.

(1) You must tag moveable equipment that has been cited to warn employees if a hazard has not been corrected, as follows:
(a) Attach a warning tag or a copy of the citation to the equipment's operating controls or to the cited component.
(b) For hand-held equipment, tag it immediately after you receive a citation.
(c) For other equipment, tag it before moving it within the worksite or between worksites.
Note:
The tag should warn employees about the nature of the violation and tell them where the citation is posted.
Reference:
For a sample tag that meets this requirement, go to helpful tools, sample tag for cited moveable equipment, in the resources section of this chapter.
(2) You must make sure that the tag or copy of the citation attached to movable equipment is not altered, defaced, or covered by other materials.
(3) You must keep the tag or copy of the citation attached to movable equipment until one of the following occurs:
(a) Violations have been corrected and all certification documents have been submitted to WISHA.
(b) Cited equipment is permanently removed from service.
(c) The final order from an appeal vacates (voids) the violation.
Note:
Safety standards for construction work, chapter 296-155 WAC, has information on warning tags. You can use warning tags that meet those requirements instead of the warning tags required by this rule.
