Pipeline Markers: Safety and Awareness

Pipelines are used to carry a wide variety of substances underground to different facilities. Pipeline markers are used as warning signs to mark underground utilities such as fiber optic cables, gas pipelines, petroleum pipelines, electric lines, water lines, and sewer lines. Without pipeline markers, workers digging in the area are susceptible to hitting hazardous lines, which could lead to injury and even death. The American National Standards Institute (ANSI/ASME) uses a pipe labeling color code chart with six standard color combinations and four user-defined combinations. The color requirements provide a fast, safe, and easy method to identify hazardous materials in piping systems.
