While OSHA does not have Pipe or Hose labeling and marking specifications, OSHA refers to the ANSI/AME A13.1 pipe marking standards for various industries.
Therefore the ANSI/AME A13.1 standard is preferred by OSHA. Pipe labeling falls
into the category of OSHA's General Duty Clause which requires industrial
facilities and employers to provide and maintain a safe workplace.
Failing to properly label pipes and hoses may violate OSHA's General Duty
Clause creating liability for employers and could result in an OSHA citation.
Complying with OSHA labeling requirements:
ANSI/ASME A13.1 specifies that labels should be placed on pipes:
Adjacent to all valves & flanges
Adjacent to all changes in pipe direction
On both sides of wall, floor or ceiling penetrations
Every 50 feet on straight runs of pipe (or every 25 feet in congested locations)
ANSI/ASME A13.1 specifications recommend the following color codes based on the type of hazard that could created by hose or pipe's contents. These recommended color codes are:

|Note: Your computer monitor, mobile device, or printer may not display these colors correctly. Actual printed label colors are formulated in accordance with the Pantone® color system and may vary slighty from the colors represented on this chart.|
The color scheme chart above is based on the ANSI/ASME A13.1 color code system which uses six predefined colors and four user-defined colors to identify various pipe / hose contents. Please consult all applicable safety codes, regulations, and local policies used by your facility when selecting the color scheme for your Gnarly Wraps™ Pipe & Hose identification sleeves. There are no refunds, returns or exchanges for customer mistakes regarding color schemes or labeling text.
In order to ensure visibility, minimum label and text sizes are required, based on the hose or pipe's Outer Diameter (OD).
The minimum label and text sizes for pipe labeling is also defined by
ANSI code and is based on the pipe / hose outer diameter. Gnarly Wraps™ Pipe &
Hose identification sleeves are fitted with labels / label text of the following
