Brady announces new ANSI Z535 safety signs
Additional stock signs are compliant with OSHA’s most recent consensus standard for signs
Brady (NYSE:BRC), a global leader in industrial and safety printing systems and solutions, today announced its new ANSI Z-535 safety signs. Over 300 stock signs are available in Brady’s top selling messages, including personal protective equipment (PPE), lockout tagout, hazardous materials, confined space and more. Custom signs are also available to meet unique message, artwork and size specifications.
Under OSHA’s November 2013 update, users can now use either the latest American National Standard Institute (ANSI) standard from 2011 (ANSI Z535.1, Z535.2 & Z535.5) or the previous standard from 1967-1968. The ANSI Z535 signs allow for clearer messages with a descriptive header, a legend containing the hazard and a visual pictogram to help convey the safety message.
“The latest ANSI sign format helps eliminate communication barriers through the use of explanatory pictograms and clear hazard explanations,” says Tom Smith, product marketing specialist for Brady. “With signs that are easier to understand at a glance, employees are able to identify safety hazards and respond accordingly to help improve workplace safety and compliance.”
Brady also encourages those impacted by the latest OSHA safety sign standards to visit BradyID.com/OSHA-Sign-Update to view and download resources, such as our ANSI Z535 Overview Video, 15-Minute ANSI Webinar, Safety Sign Standards Info Sheet and Facility Safety Signage Guide.
“As facilities move towards the Z535 standard, signage throughout the industry will become more informative, easily identifiable and uniform. This latest ANSI format was created off of research data and updated best practices to help you reach the ultimate goal of sending employees home safely every day,” adds Smith.
