Abstract: OSHA's standard on Signs, Signals and Barricades (subpart G-29 CFR 1926.200 through 1926.203) currently incorporates the American National Standards Institute's 1971 industry consensus standard ANSI D6.1-1971. The ANSI organization has withdrawn its 1971 standard and the U.S. Department of Transportation has issued an updated standard entitled: A Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD). Because the OSHA standard is out of date, the Agency intends to propose changes to update subpart G to incorporate the requirements of the Department of Transportation's MUTCD into the OSHA rule.
