Lock-out tags are used by factory workers to clearly identify broken or damaged equipment. Milwaukee Makerspace is no exception. A set of stop sign-shaped, 3″ wide, 3/16″ thick, red plastic tags have been created with the words “STOP – NEEDS REPAIR” in bold, white letters. Tags are hanging over the first aid file cabinet by the light switches in the Workshop. If you find a machine is out of service, please zip-tie a tag to the machine, preferably over its ON/OFF switch so people can easily spot it and refrain from using a potentially unsafe tool.
