OSHA Updates Eye, Face Protection Standards


The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has published a final rule that updates requirements for personal protective equipment (PPE) for workers in general industry. The final rule reflects current national consensus standards and ensures workers can use up-to-date eye and face protection. 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the ANSI/ISEA Z87.1-2010, Occupational and Educational Personal Eye and Face Protection Devices, while deleting the outdated 1986 edition of that same national consensus standard.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 also is retaining the 2003 and 1989 (R-1998) versions of the ANSI standard already referenced in its standard. Click here for more information.
