Why Pipe Identification Is Essential for Your Business

The Health & Safety (Signs & Signals) Regulations 1996 Part 3 require all employers to identify all pipes within their facility. Several norms exist across Europe, which indicate how pipes should be identified. The law stipulates that pipes transporting dangerous and hazardous substances must be identified with the relevant danger symbol and the name of the hazardous or dangerous substance. 

Pipe markers should be applied at frequent intervals on straight pipe runs. They also need to be visible either side of a wall or floor where pipes pass through, at changes of direction and close to either side of any valves. Pipe identification will reduce the risk of dangerous accidents, improve your business operations and can reduce your insurance costs.
