Code Compliance And Safety Labeling Maintenance

Keeping up with safety regulation can be a daunting task. Make sure you know what labeling regulations apply to your business.

Industrial facilities contain miles of pipe in complex piping systems, some of which may hold potentially dangerous or hazardous materials. Code compliance regulations require that piping systems be properly labeled with the appropriate information necessary to communicate dangers and hazards to employees who may be working on or near piping systems.

Piping system labels should contain information regarding pipe contents, flow direction, temperature and pressure requirements and any other pertinent information regarding potential hazards. Labels should always be prominently placed in easily visible areas, using durable, long lasting products. Labels should be inspected regularly as a part of your proactive maintenance program. Damaged, deteriorating or missing labels should be promptly replaced. Companies can face steep fines for failing to maintain code compliance if required labeling is found inappropriately placed, deteriorated, or missing. Properly maintaining piping system labels helps your facility stay in compliance with codes and regulations.
