I'm aware of OSHA requirements to insulate hot piping (generally above 140 deg F) for personnel protection, but I can't seem to find any reference about a lower limit. Is there a code or industry practice for cold piping personnel protection? I imagine touching a pipe containing a fluid at absolute zero would burn, or perhaps cause frostbite.
Thanks for your help.
