What to do if someone were remove your tag out? Then did a modification and they(offender) are not an apprentice or electrician?

This is in accordance to Canadian law

The first thing to do is make sure there aren't any witnesses when you beat the sh#t out of them.

From what I recall, it can be a Criminal Code offense, even if no injury occurs. I would call the Ministry of Labour from a pay-phone, and just ask some questions.

If this is something you pulled a permit on and the guy made some modifications I'd act in kind and make a few mods to his body. We have crab traps to bait soon.

I don't know Canada stuff, but a good tune-up maybe.......with a hockey stick?

Seriously, I would follow AK's advice.

Are we talking LOTO? If so I would grab my lock and walk away if they did it when I was not on the job. If I was in an industrial environment I would report it to the main man.

Kick it up to your manager, compliance officer, whatever. Asking some under the radar questions to the authorities ain't a bad idea either just so you know where you stands now and in future situations.

I offer free cosmetic surgery preformed with a conduit bender as a prize for screwing with my locks.

Who is the 'someone' ? Is this Industrial, and a mechanic removed it ?
First time it happened ? Why did he/she remove it ? Are there ongoing issues between trades here ?

Tag outs I've used are with a key lock ... is this the case? if so, where did they get the key ?

Did you talk to the person who did it ? What did they say ?

I could go on ....

Don't get me wrong, if someone removed my lock out, there would be a sh!t show ... but you really didn't give many details

Yeah, on tv the bad guys are always using burner phones when they want to be anonymous. Nobody has time to drive around looking for pay phones.
