Lake Oswego, OR (PRWEB) May 13, 2013
Structural buildings from manufacturing facilities to shopping malls rely on water, gas and other liquids to maintain a facility. OSHA A13.1-1996 standards mandate that pipes be properly marked for the safety of employees, general public, service repairmen, and emergency crew. Creative Safety Supply is now offering pre-made pipe marking labels that will take the legwork from understanding color codes and label sizes as regulated by OSHA.
Pipe marking ensures that individuals working in the facility are aware of what pipes are carrying as well as any potential hazards associated with the pipe contents. Pipe marking labels indicate which pipelines are dangerous, the direction of flow, and pipe contents. Proper marking of pipes creates a safer working environment and lessens the chances of an employee being injured or an unexpected leak into the environment.
OSHA standards require that pipe labels comply with color coding and not only that, but the text size is regulated by the size of the pipe it is placed on. Creative Safety Supply makes it easy by providing pre-made pipe labels with correct colored labels, colored texts, and a variety of sizes. Pre-printed labels make it convenient for companies and they can save a lot of money by doing it on their own rather than outsourcing.
Pre-Made Pipe Labels are made from industrial indoor and outdoor vinyl designed to last five to seven years outdoors in temperatures ranging from -25 to 210 degrees. They are resistant to water, chemicals, and UV exposure and won’t smear or smudge.
A maintenance worker commented, “The pre-made labels made our job of marking pipes extremely easy. We love the fact that you just peel and stick.”
