Go to http://www.osha.gov/

There you will be able to locate all the information you need. You can
request copies of many of the ODSA regulation booklets from this site also.
There is one concerning Lockout/Tagout and there is already a design
standard for these tags. You can purchase the tags at any Electrical Supply
house. You don't have to redesign the wheel here.

This link will take you directly to the Lockout/Tagout page.

Hope this helps
