Is the Halo ANSI and/or OSHA approved?

The Halo is a Personal Active Safety System™. ANSI A10.47 describes Personal Active Safety Systems as a source of illumination that can be used to enhance worker visibility (Section 14.2, “Illumination Levels”). The standard also states that personal active safety devices are a method of providing additional protection for flaggers (Section 5.2.2, “Flagger Safety”).

The Halo was specifically designed not to invalidate the ANSI rating of a hard hat. ANSI Z89.1 states that nothing may pierce or permanently affix to the hard hat. Our unique patented tension spring mount system was designed to hold onto the hard hat without invalidating this rating. In regards to OSHA, there is no current code that defines lighting requirements in the manner delivered by the Halo. According to OSHA standard 1926.56, there are minimum illumination intensities in foot-candles for US job sites. The light emitted by the Halo exceeds all minimum requirements as defined by OSHA for any type of construction work.
