OSHA Publishes Proposed Revision to Eye and Face Protection Standards
24 March 2015
According to a press release, OSHA has published a proposed revision to its Eye and Face Protection Standards that updates personal protective equipment requirements in the agency’s general industry, shipyard employment, longshoring, marine terminals and construction standards. The proposed revisions would reflect current national consensus standards and ensure that employers use up-to-date eye and face protection during dangerous workplace operations.
This would incorporate the latest American National Standards Institute eye and face protection standard (ANSI Z-87.1), which was adopted after OSHA issued the final rule on personal protective equipment in 2009.
