Pipe marking is an easily overlooked practice, even though it’s a vital part of maintaining a safe, efficient workplace. Properly labeled pipes inform employees about potential hazards associated with pipe contents, minimize confusion, and assist first responders during emergencies.
To better equip employers with the knowledge and resources to properly label pipes throughout their facility, Graphic Products will host a pipe marking webinar.
Brian McFadden, Compliance Specialist with Graphic Products, will lead the 10-minute webinar, which will cover pipe marking best practices and the importance of pipe marking for a safe workplace.
The webinar will examine:
- ANSI/ASME A13.1: The broadest recommendation for pipe marking in the United States
- Design requirements: The elements of an effective pipe marking label
- Equipment: Creating and printing pipe markers in the workplace
Following the webinar, attendees are invited to participate in a question-and-answer session with McFadden. Attendees can register online or call 866.927.8573 for more information.
“Large facilities can rely on miles of piping to carry fuels, ingredients, and products,” McFadden said. “It’s impossible to maintain or improve those systems, or to be sure of your workers’ safety around them, without clear knowledge of what’s in each pipe. Effective pipe marking solves that problem.”
