American National Standard for Safety Colors

Scope

This standard sets forth the technical definitions, color standards, and color tolerances for safety colors.  

Abstract

Color codes used on safety signs, labels and tags, as well as for the identification and location of fire  extinguishers, first aid kits, traffic aisles, stumbling and tripping hazards, etc., have been developed in  the past by a large number of industrial firms and other organizations.

Although these color codes give satisfaction to those using them, they suffer from lack of uniformity. As a  result, spontaneity of action in times of emergency can be lost, particularly by employees who have  moved from one plant to another, when each has a different system.

This standard sets forth the specifications and test  methods for safety colors in order to establish  uniformity of safety color coding.
