New OSHA Signage Requirements to Take Effect on Sept. 11th
August 22, 2013
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (“OSHA”) has issued a Direct Final Rule updating its regulations on signage standards for construction projects. The new rule updates the 70 year old standards for signage at construction sites by integrating the latest version of the American National Standards Institute (“ANSI”) standards on accident prevention with signs and tags. The goal of the update is to improve workplace safety on construction projects by allowing employers to use the ANSI standards to facilitate safe practices without running the risk of being cited for OSHA violations. A copy of the new rule is available here.
