Eye and face protection standards updated in OSHA final rule

By Dorothy Lozowski |

The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has published a final rule that updates personal-protective-equipment requirements for general industry and others.

The rule updates references in OSHA’s Eye and Face Protection Standards to recognize the ANSI/ISEA Z87.1-2010, Occupational and Educational Personal Eye and Face Protection Devices, while deleting the outdated 1986 edition of that same national consensus standard. OSHA is also retaining the 2003 and 1989 (R-1998) versions of the ANSI standard already referenced in its standard.

In addition, the final rule updates the construction standard by deleting the 1968 version of the ANSI standard that was referenced and now includes the same three ANSI standards referenced above to ensure consistency among the agency’s standards.

OSHA’s final rule becomes effective on April 25, 2016. More information about the final rule can be found by clicking on the link, and on the OSHA website www.osha.gov
