1 Nuclear Safe Work Practice 6.7 Safety Signs/Tapes/Ropes/Chains and Tags 1.0 PURPOSE/SCOPE To provide consistent standards for using safety signs, tapes, ropes and chains (barriers) to communicate existing or potential hazards and / or provide specific safe work practice direction. 2.0 RESPONSIBILITIES Each station group or section is responsible for ensuring their areas of responsibility (operational control, system expert, component expert and material condition areas) are labeled in accordance with this work practice. Any person finding a hazard labeling deficiency and / or discrepancy is responsible for initiating corrective action to resolve the labeling concern in accordance with the requirements of NSD 503, Station Labeling Standards. Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) shall be responsible for maintaining this NSWP and providing technical guidance. 3.0 Sections 1. Safety Color Recognition 2. Safety Signs 3. Tapes/Ropes/Chains (barriers) 4. Safety Tags SECTION 1. SAFETY COLOR RECOGNITION Employees and vendors who work at the nuclear stations are expected to use this work practice as guidance in labeling hazards and recognizing important safety color codes. This color Red Orange Yellow Communicates An immediate hazard and requires special precautions (generally used to indicate serious hazards) A potentially hazardous situation which, if not avoided, could result in death, serious injury or major equipment damage A potential hazard and requires special precautions -1

2 Green Blue General safety instructions Information other than for identification. May include unusual operational characteristics, special conditions, location, etc. Note: RP may use yellow and magenta signs or have other colors, as appropriate, to designate radiological hazards. RP signs are not incorporated and are outside the scope of this NSWP. Section 2. Safety Signs 1. When a known potential hazard exists, workers should make signs readily visible at all times; promptly remove (or cover) when the hazard no longer exists. Sign Appearance Use Upper panel is predominantly red; lower panel, for additional sign wording, is white; border is black. Predominant color is orange; upper panel is orange with Warning written in black; lower panel, for additional sign wording, is white; additional wording is in black.

3 VERIFY HARD COPY AGAINST WEB SITE IMMEDIATELY PRIOR TO USE 2. Use signs (material) that can withstand their environment (i.e., heat, cold, sunlight, etc.). 3. Personnel safety concerns that require a permanent sign should be addressed through the PIP process. 4. When station personnel determine a need for ordering signs, complete the appropriate form in NSD 503 Station Labeling Standards and submit to the Site Labeling Coordinator. Refer to NSD 503, Station Labeling Standards. 5. When hanging signs, use attachment devices capable of withstanding their environment (i.e., heat, cold, sunlight, etc.) Refer to NSD 503 Station Labeling Standards for guidance on installing signs. 6. The following is a list of specific posting requirements, but is not all-inclusive. When site roads must be closed or lanes redirected (where employees are exposed to traffic flow), refer to NSWP 4.1, Work Zone Safety. A Biohazard sign shall be posted where the actual or potential presence of a biohazard exists in a room, equipment, materials, containers, or a combination that may contain, or are contaminated with viable hazardous agents. (e.g., at heat exchanger tube shooting operations, door into cooling towers.) In hydrogen storage areas, signs shall be posted that state Danger - Hydrogen Flammable Gas No Smoking No Open Flames or equivalent. In oxygen storage areas, signs shall be posted that state Danger - Oxygen No Smoking No Open Flames or equivalent. Danger - No Smoking - No Open Flames signs shall be posted in all spray painting areas, paint storage rooms, in areas used for fueling, receiving or dispensing flammable or combustible liquids, and in the vicinity of dip tanks containing flammable or combustible liquids. Flammable storage cabinets containing flammable liquids, such as gasoline, must be posted with "Flammable Keep Fire Away" signs or labels. Caution Wear Hearing Protection signs shall be posted in areas where noise levels make conversation difficult. Contact Safety to evaluate areas where hearing protection requirements cannot be easily determined. Warning Out of Order signs shall be posted on overhead or gantry cranes and on the floor beneath or on the hook so that it is visible from the floor before making adjustments or repairs. Exits must be clearly visible or exits conspicuously marked to show the direction and complete path of escape from any point. Temporary electrical panel boxes shall be marked Danger Keep Out or equivalent and be marked with voltage levels that are present. Pull and junction boxes for systems over 600 volts shall be clearly marked Danger High Voltage on the cover. Areas protected by fixed extinguishing systems, which use agents known to be hazardous to employee safety and health, shall be posted at the entrance and inside, -3

Danger Asbestos Cancer and Lung Disease Hazard Authorized Personnel Only signs shall be posted wherever asbestos work is taking place, or to mark a pipe insulation spill area. Danger Lead Work Area Poison No Smoking or Eating signs shall be posted where welding, cutting, or grinding on lead containing coatings is taking place. Caution Wet Floor signs shall be set up where a slip hazard exists due to water on the floor. These self-standing signs are available in spill cabinets in the plant and in janitor supply closets. Danger Hot Pipe signs should be posted on piping systems with operating temperatures above 130 F and within 7 of the floor or within a personnel access area that cannot be insulated. Reference NSD 503, Station Labeling Standards. Laboratories shall be posted with "Caution Safety Glasses Required in this Area." Battery rooms shall be posted with signs that state there is an electrical hazard present, list the voltage of the hazard, and explain entry requirements. Include wording to indicate that the room / area contains a dangerous electrical hazard due to the presence of battery terminals and is to be accessed by authorized personnel only. Section 3 Tapes, Ropes and Chains (barriers) 1. Plastic barrier tape cannot be used in any outdoor applications. Plastic chain or rope should be used instead. 2. Use a red barrier to warn of immediate hazards. Locate barrier at such distance to restrict access from the hazard so that persons cannot accidentally come into contact with the hazard. 3. Use a yellow barrier to designate potential hazard areas. Locate the barrier so as to set up a sufficient boundary to the area, but minimize the impact on plant operations. 4. The use of hazard tape is intended for short-term applications or situations. 5. For each area using a barrier, attach a tag or sign stating the reason for the barrier, date, responsible work group, and how to contact them when used to mark an area that is to be unattended. 6. Neatly install the barrier and keep it intact as long as the hazard exists. Attach barrier so that it will stay in place (i.e., not to hot pipe, not dragging the ground, etc.) Promptly remove the barrier when the condition is corrected. 7. No part of a person's body may cross any barrier without permission for the barrier's owner. This permission may be expressly displayed on signage. a. Barriers should only be accessed at designated entry and exit points. 8. Do not lean on standard rails or guardrails. 9. If a barrier is used to warn of a floor opening or hole, ensure someone is continuously stationed at the opening to prevent accidental entry until standard rails can be installed. -4
