DangerTags provides a facility-wide LOTO solution by employing enterprise level technology, state-of-the-art materials and processes, and a global security interface across all platforms to ease regulatory burdens facing any industry today.
DangerTags are created to match your corporate standards because we recognize it is much easier for us to change our tags than for a huge corporation to change its safety documentation.
DangerTags quickly prints detailed information on each tag in sequential order, thereby streamlining the LOTO process by eliminating handwritten mistakes and improving efficiency.
DangerTags stores your isolation procedures on site, allowing for retention and easy access of knowledge to be transferred to new employees.
Ease of Use
DangerTags provides a high level of management while maintaining its simplicity. Filter through thousands of isolation points to arrive at a small subset which can be easily added, edited, and printed.
Our tags are absolutely waterproof, UV resistant, heat resistant, impossible to tear and made with a 3/8 hole accommodating lock hasps or large cable ties. They do not require a grommet, which not only saves money, but eliminates a foreign object in the field. Equipment information is baked onto our tags with a thermal transfer process using our MIL-SPEC grade ribbons that will outperform other ribbons in extreme environments.
Easily import or export data via Excel spreadsheets. You have full control of database descriptive terminology and all content is created upon import of your spreadsheet.
DangerTags allows you to quickly access SOP’s, P&ID’s, photos, MSDS’s, and other documents from your corporate network within a single click.
DangerTags Mobile Option allows you to download the isolation set to a Class I Div II intrinsically safe device and go into the field to scan tags for LOTO verification. Once all points are scanned, upload the verification to document the isolation.
DangerTags is a one-stop shop for OSHA LOTO compliance where all daily and annual OSHA LOTO compliance concerns are managed effectively and efficiently. Our software protects your standards by controlling access of three user groups.
This separation of powers, used to its fullest extent, helps fulfill all of the requirements of the CFR 29 Section 1910.147 by putting in place an energy control program that enforces your corporate standards, documents processes, prints OSHA compliant tags and automatically generates reports for periodic annual review.

Lockout / Tagout Software Solution
DangerTags provides the facility-wide solution by employing enterprise level technology, state-of-the-art materials and processes, and a global security interface across all platforms to ease regulatory burdens facing industry today
The world's largest corporations are adopting DangerTags, automated LOTO software.
DangerTags is comprehensive and simple, meets OSHA requirements, eliminates clutter, reduces human error potential and saves time and money.
If you haven't seen DangerTags, call today for a live web presentation. Once you walk through the program, and see how easy LOTO can be, you'll never go back to your current processes. No matter what you are currently doing, DangerTags is better.
Logically groups isolation points by task or trade
DangerTags logically groups isolation points for different objectives so the lockout package for specific equipment can change for different tasks or trades (such as electrical versus mechanical) with the ease of a drill-down click. This allows you to build LOTO packages by drilling down through lists filtered by equipment architecture, starting in a unit and then choosing systems and subsystems. After selecting equipment, you then select the task or trade. This technology makes ongoing maintenance easy. A data entry screen allows you to browse or edit existing isolation points and also create new points based on old ones. Equipment types, isolation positions, locations, tasks, and all isolation point descriptive data is under the full control of the user for customization.
Using simple drill-down technology, you can access equipment, units and systems through terminology that you are familiar with. You then quickly and easily choose and create LOTO packages. There are no tedious and cumbersome searches but an intuitive, comprehensive and clutter-free process that allows you to find and identify the information you need, ultimately creating packages for repetitive recall and reuse. Recall like this gives you a level of confidence in the integrity of the process and system.
Saves prebuilt packages with a friendly name for one-click retrieval
Trade or task-specific packages can be can be saved and retrieved later with a single click. Therefore LOTO of high maintenance equipment is reduced to a single click. There is no need for you to create packages in advance. Instead, at the moment you realize you've performed LOTO repeatedly, simply click and save a specific package and it will be ready for you the next time.
DangerTags is incredibly flexible, allowing you to attach whatever documentation is required for your particular location to the LOTO process. The system allows the user to link equipment to your pictures, Standard Operating Procedures, P&ID’s, isometrics, spreadsheets and other materials specific to that equipment. If your LOTO processes require you to have a picture or a diagram of a pump, DangerTags accommodates that need by serving as a “one-stop” shop for all documentation requirements.
Clear communication is of paramount importance; therefore, DangerTags provides LOTO field verification, recording it in the database. The result is a printed form that can be hung on the job site, or emailed in PDF format to concerned parties. When a person in the field sees this form they know that it could not have been printed if the barcode on every single tag had not been scanned during the audit process. The form on the job site effectively communicates with the people in the field that LOTO is complete. This process eliminates guessing. Because there is a consistency from shift to shift, there is a level of confidence in the system. Verification is easy and documented.
Utilizes an import wizard to populate your database
Isolation points can be imported and exported in mass using Excel spreadsheets, facilitating the initial population of your database. Ongoing maintenance is made easy by a data entry screen that allows supervisors to easily browse or edit existing isolation points and also create new points based on old ones. Equipment types, isolation positions, locations, tasks, and all isolation point descriptive data is under the full control of those given authority for customization and manipulation.
Provides simple screens for easily adding or revising
DangerTags provides for a high level of management while maintaining its simplicity because it utilizes a filtering system. You can filter through thousands of isolation points to arrive at a small subsets that you can then easily edit. Adding new items is just as simple. Add items from scratch by copying existing isolation points. For instance, if a new drain valve is added downstream from an existing drain valve, you can easily add this new drain valve to your LOTO by simply copying the existing drain valve record and with minor changes adding it as a new piece of equipment.
Reduces clutter by associating users with equipment
DangerTags can be individualized by associating users with equipment and tasks that are pertinent to them. This increases efficiency because it decreases clutter. In addition, user-specific task assignments are maintained on handheld devices, which streamlines workflow.
DangerTags is a one-stop shop for OSHA LOTO compliance where all daily and annual OSHA LOTO compliance concerns are managed effectively and efficiently. DangerTags eliminates the opportunity to change procedures on the fly that results in the lack of energy isolation standards that plagues the industry today. The program protects your standards by controlling access of two user groups. Non-administrative users have everything they need to efficiently perform energy isolation duties but are unable to alter procedures. Administrative users are given powerful data management tools and full rights to define and alter energy isolation procedures. The DangerTags application, used to its fullest extent, helps fulfill all of the requirements of the CFR 29 Section 1910.147 by putting in place an energy control program that enforces your corporate standards, documents processes, prints OSHA compliant tags and automatically generates reports for periodic annual reviews.
Prints super strong, state-of-the-art tags eliminating handwritten processes
DangerTags tags are created to match your corporate standards because we recognize it's much easier for us to change our tags than for a huge corporation to change its safety documentation. But one thing we won't change is the superior quality of our state-of-the-art tags. They are absolutely waterproof, UV resistant up to a year, heat resistant, impossible to tear and made with a 3/8 hole accommodating lock hasps or large cable ties. They don't require a grommet, which not only saves money, but eliminates a foreign object in the field. Of course, DangerTags software prints every necessary detail on each tag in sequential order, streamlining LOTO by eliminating hand-written processes and reducing high hourly labor costs. Equipment information is baked onto our tags with a thermal transfer process using our MIL-SPEC grade ribbons that will outperform other ribbons in extreme environments. We can also manufacture custom tags from our incredible material. Call today if you have other durable tagging needs.
Utilizes multi-platform technology to become part of our corporate network architecture
DangerTags can easily be part of your corporate network architecture because it is a stable client-server desktop application running on top of MS SQL Server with a Wi-Fi enabled, mobile field auditing option. Our Windows Mobile compatible option presents you with a list of packages assigned to a user and arms the person in the field with concise, real-time data to promote safety and accuracy. DangerTags Mobile keeps scanning progress on the local device, removing dependence on the Wi-Fi signal. Concise, real-time feedback is provided to the user, i.e., Good Scan or Tag not in Package. The mobile device tracks progress as the auditor scans tags and provides a real-time reconciliation of missed tags right there in the field. When in the presence of the Wi-Fi network, the user can press “certify” or “restore” and the handheld makes an entry in the database noting who audited the package and when it was certified. Once the certification has been sent from the handheld, a certification form can be printed to hang on the job site or emailed to concerned parties in PDF format. Finally, the system will produce a report of all equipment currently isolated.
Enterprise-class Architecture Results in Bulletproof Security and Blazing Performance
The technology behind DangerTags is as well thought out as the incredibly intuitive user interface. DangerTags was written from the ground up to be an enterprise-class system. Don't settle for systems that were written in Microsoft Access and then evolved into Access front ends over a more substantial database like Microsoft SQL Server, using slow and unstable database technologies like ODBC. This complicates corporate rollouts and causes administrative nightmares as corporations upgrade desktop systems (like Windows or Office), or try to install new versions of the LOTO program. DangerTags is written using Microsoft's .Net Framework with direct, native database connectivity onto SQL Server. Liberal use of stored procedures in the database maintains snappy performance across wide area networks regardless of the number of users. Our security layer provides global access across all platforms (desktop, web, and Wi-Fi) and uses the Triple Data Encryption Standard (3DES), providing world-class security to match our robust, high-performance database architecture. Our Wi-Fi implementation uses web services to communicate via the Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) on Class 1 Div 2 intrinsically safe devices running Windows Mobile. All of this combines to make DangerTags as popular with IT professionals as it is with LOTO professionals.
