Accident Prevention Sign and Tag Requirements (Microlearning)


The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires the use of signs and symbols to warn workers about specific hazards in the workplace and tell them how to prevent these hazards from causing harm or injury to employees. The design of these signs is standardized across all types of workplaces so that workers can easily understand their meanings. Workers need to understand the rules that govern safety signs and recognize the meanings of common symbols and colors in order to protect themselves and others from harm. Learners who successfully complete this course should be able to identify the requirements for accident prevention signs and tags outlined by OSHA and the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). This microlearning course addresses a specific aspect of a broader training topic. For a more complete training experience, see OGS-45.2 Accident Prevention Signs and Tags.
