Safety Programs And Pipe Labeling

Part of your facility safety program should be adequate pipe labeling that at least meets current codes and regulations.

Proper pipe labeling is an important part of safety programs in every facility. Industrial piping systems can be extensive, often with miles of pipes containing a variety of contents, flowing in many different directions. Those piping systems may be damaged in the event of a malfunction, an accident, or even possibly a major disaster.

Fortunately, major disasters are rare. Unfortunately broken pipes are a common occurrence. Even a small leak in a pipe can create a hazardous situation. To keep a small problem from becoming a big disaster, quick clean up of spills and repair of broken pipes is essential.

When a piping emergency occurs, properly labeled piping systems are more quickly repaired than systems that are missing appropriate identification. In order to safely respond to an emergency situation involving industrial piping it is necessary to know exactly what the pipe contents are. Do the pipes contain hazardous substances? Are the contents under pressure? What direction are the pipe contents flowing? This information should always be readily available on easy to locate, easy to read labels, attached in the proper location according to pipe marking standards. ANSVASME A13.1 standard addresses the need for pipes to be labeled with the contents of the pipe, the hazard it poses, and any other critical information such as temperature or pressure requirements. Pipe labels help to identify vital information so correct hazard precautions can be taken when piping systems are being maintained or repaired.

Effective safety programs will assure that facility piping systems are properly labeled. Safety programs should include maintenance of facility safety labels as a part of the program so that deteriorating or missing labels are identified and replaced promptly. Properly done pipe labeling helps facilities stay compliant with regulations and improves safety and productivity.
