Section 215.5 Pigging and testing of pipelines

Where pigging and testing is being done, only workers directly involved with that operation are allowed to be in the immediate area of piping exposed while the work is in progress. Workers must not be in the immediate vicinity of a pressurized pigcatcher or pipe-end during pigging and testing. Pigs may only be removed after the pigcatcher has been depressurized.
