OSHA Publishes Confirmation of Direct Final Rule on New Sign Regulations

Posted by Erin Earley | 5th Nov 2013

At the end of last month, here on the Clarion Safety Systems blog, we brought you the news that the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) had updated its regulations on signs and tags. OSHA's regulations now integrate the new ANSI Z535 (2011) safety sign and tag technology – technology that better communicates safety in today's workplaces.

Today's update: It's official! OSHA has now made this announcement public by publishing confirmation of the effective date (September 11, 2013) of its direct final rule on the new sign regulations.

According to the November 6, 2013 article posted to the U.S. Federal Register website, Since OSHA received no such significant adverse comments, the Agency now confirms that the direct final rule became effective as a final rule on September 11, 2013.
