OSHA Standard 1926.6. Accident prevention tags shall be used as a temporary means of warning employees of an existing hazard, such as defective tools, equipment, etc. They shall not be used in place of, or as a substitute for, accident prevention signs.

Good morning. An accident prevention tag is different than a sign. A sign cannot replace the tag. The sign can act as a secondary warning.
Thank you for the question and stay safe!
