ANSI Z535.1 2017

ANSI Z535.1, Safety Colors, is being updated and the new 2017 Edition is due in mid-December.  This new Edition will also impact the ANSI Z535 set of the 6 standards in the series.  Remember, if you have purchased the entire set, only the Z535.1 will be updated in December.  The new revision will be available from Document Center Inc. at that time.

ANSI Z535.1 includes the technical definitions, color standards, and color tolerances for safety colors. These are the colors that are used in safety signage and other warning material.  It provides a consistent way to communicate hazardous situations and environments visually.

The standard is widely used throughout industry.  It has even been adopted by the U.S. Department of Defense.  The standard was last updated in 2006, with reaffirmation of the contents in 2011.  So this new update will be important for many businesses and other organizations.

There’s no preview available for the new ANSI Z535.1 2017 Edition at this time.  So I’m unable to give you concrete information on the up-coming changes.  I will note however that the ANSI-Z535.4 is also under review.  So a new edition of that standard could also appear soon.

Now to get your copy of the new edition.  It’s available for pre-order now at our Document Center Inc. webstore,  Here is a direct link to the order page for the ANSI Z535.1 for your convenience.  Please note:  As I stated before, this new edition will also update the information for the Z535 set.  If you already own all 6 standards, you’ll only need to get the updated Part 1 in order to remain current.
