OSHA Advisory Committee Meeting to Consider Sign Standard Change

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is holding a special meeting of the Advisory Committee on Construction Safety and Health (ACCSH) March 18 to consider changes to OSHA’s standard on accident prevention signs and tags in construction.

The standard currently requires signs and symbols are visible at all times to warn workers of existing hazards when work is being performed. The updates are based on revisions in the American National Standards Institute consensus standards. For more information, see OSHA’s existing Accident Prevention Signs and Tags standard.

In addition to possible changes to the sign regulation, the group will discuss consider proposed amendments and corrections to OSHA’s Cranes and Derricks standards.

ACCSH, established under the Contract Work Hours and Safety Standards Act and the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, advises the secretary of labor and assistant secretary of labor for occupational safety and health on construction standards and policy matters.

The meeting will be held from 1- 4 p.m. in Room N-3437 A-C, U.S. Department of Labor, 200 Constitution Ave., N.W., Washington, DC 20210.

The meeting is open to the public. Comments and requests to speak may be submitted electronically at http://www.regulations.gov, the Federal e-Rulemaking Portal or by mail or facsimile. See the Federal Register notice for submission details. Comments and requests to speak must be submitted by March 8.
