OSHA Updates Safety Signage Regulations

In a June 13, 2013 FR Notice OSHA update its general industry and construction signage standards by adding references to the latest versions of the American National Standards Institute (‘‘ANSI’’) standards on specifications for accident prevention signs and tags, ANSI Z535.1– 2006(R2011), Z535.2–2011 and Z535.5– 2011. In this rulemaking, OSHA is retaining the existing references to the earlier ANSI standards, ANSI Z53.1– 1967, Z35.1–1968 and Z35.2–1968, in its signage standards, thereby providing employers an option to comply with the updated or earlier standards.
