Learn to effectively communicate pipe contents to keep workers safe

Pipe labeling is essential in workplaces that have any kind of internal or external piping. It doesn't matter if it's steam, an abandoned pipe, or one that contains hazardous chemicals such as ammonia. Providing this information, as well as which direction the liquid or gas is flowing, is necessary for maintenance teams to perform their jobs safely and effectively. Pipe marking labels also serve an important purpose in terms of emergency situations. For example, knowing which valve to shut off due to a burst pipe can be life or death in an emergency. Do the right thing and keep your workers safe by labeling the facility's pipes.
