LEARNING OBJECTIVE: Recognize piping, gas cylinders, and general safety color coding.
Color warnings provide for marking physical hazards, for indicating the location of safety equipment, and for identifying fire and other protective equipment. As a Utilitiesman, you may often be concerned with uniform colors used for marking pipelines carrying hazardous materials, compressed gas cylinders, and fire- protection equipment.
Five classes of materials have been selected to represent the general hazards for all dangerous materials, while a sixth class has been reserved for fire- protection materials. A standard color represents each of these classes, as shown in table 1-1.
In some instances, piping systems that do not require warning colors may be painted to match surroundings; in other instances, such systems may be painted aluminum, black, or remain unpainted.
In addition to color warnings, WRITTEN TITLES should be used to identify hazardous or dangerous materials conveyed in piping systems.
