What Are The OSHA Color Codes?

What are the OSHA Color Codes?

On today’s podcast – we’re going to be answering the question “What are the OSHA Color Codes?”.
So stay tuned.
You can find the show notes to each episode, links to the information mentioned on the podcast, the social media platforms we’re on, and anything else related to the podcast at WarehouseSafetyTips.com.

If you’re a seasoned Podcast Listener – this podcast is going to be different from most you listen to.  It’s based around exactly what the name implies – Warehouse Safety Tips.  And since the people in that industry are busy – we know time is money, so each episode will be as short and to the point as possible.

And now that all that is out of the way – let’s get to the Podcast!

What are the OSHA Color Codes?
Before answering that, we should probably make sure you know what OSHA is.  We covered this a few weeks ago on Episode 115 – ” What Does OSHA Stand For?”.  If you missed it or don’t know – it’s an acronym that represents the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
We try to keep things simple and bite-sized on this podcast – and this one will be no different.  There are several colors among OSHA’s Color Codes – but, we’re only going to be covering the two that mirror life in and out of your facility.  Those colors are the two colors on a stoplight or most safety signs – yellow and red.  We picked those two because they’re pretty universal in what they mean no matter where you go.
When you see the color yellow – it means you should be cautious of your surroundings or preparing to stop.
The color red means stop, do not enter or indicates danger.
In the workplace – these colors can sometimes fade into the background, and become almost invisible to us.  It’s of the utmost importance that we go about every moment of our day looking for these two colors in particular, as they’re the two that can impact us and our co-workers the most.  Not paying attention to them can result in anything from a harmless incident to death.
For more information on all of OSHA’s Color Codes – visit OSHA.gov and search “Color Codes”.

We look forward to seeing you next week for another Warehouse Safety Tips.

Until then, have a great week and STAY SAFE!
