Why Choose Clarion for Your Safety Signs, Labels and Markings?
When you ask our customers that question, they’ll tell you it’s for our unmatched expertise and world-class service.

While many providers may tout their standards awareness, a large portion of the safety signs, labels and markings in use today fail to take advantage of current best practices. At Clarion, we combine our comprehensive knowledge of the latest standards and codes with our practical experience in applying them across a vast array of industries. Our clients benefit from having up-to-date safety signage that helps keep their people and/or product users safe from harm, and their companies better protected from litigation.

Why Does Clarion Choose to Do What We Do?
Over nearly three decades, we’ve taken the lead, devoted the time, and made successful outcomes happen for many, many standards-based safety sign and label initiatives. Ask us why, and it’s an easy answer! We’ve done this so we can help our customers to make the world a safer place – so people can return safely home from their work, from shopping, from vacations. That’s our passion: keeping people safe from harm.

Here are a few snapshots of what we’ve done – and why we’re so passionate about our work!

Clarion’s CEO chaired the New York City 9/11 expert taskforce that defined the new evacuation marking systems that are now used in thousands of the city’s skyscrapers.
WHY? For us, creating safer buildings is part of what we do… creating effective exit pathway marking systems so people can evacuate quickly in a crisis fits our overall mission of protecting people from harm.

Clarion designed a new sign system to communicate safety at the country’s beaches – including the oceans and Great Lakes – to make them safer for visitors, who come from all around the world.
WHY? For us, it’s more than just protecting people at work…It’s about helping to keep adults and children free from harm when they enjoy life while on vacation.

Clarion’s warnings are used on hundreds of thousands of machines found in industries throughout the world.
WHY? Machinery and processes can pose life-threatening situations when people are uninformed about safety. We’re committed to helping our customers ensure that the people in their facilities and the people who use their products go home safely to their families each night, with their lives and livelihoods intact.

Clarion donated design services to help make shopping carts safer.
WHY? When we learned how many infants and small children were severely injured or killed each year in shopping cart accidents, we volunteered our time and safety label design expertise to the ASTM committee responsible for shopping cart safety. The project was to improve, and then standardize, a better design for the warning that appears on every shopping cart’s flip-down seat. We accomplished the task by creating a graphic-based warning that tells adults to strap in their children, never leave them unattended, and NEVER place a child in an infant carrier or car seat on top of the cart! Severe head trauma and/or death is too often the result when an occupied car seat or infant carrier falls off a shopping cart. Our efforts are helping to keep these tragedies from happening.

Clarion has volunteered thousands of hours to help write the U.S. and global standards related to safety signs, labels and markings.
WHY? National and international standards set the bar for the state-of-the-art best practices for whatever topic they address. This is incredibly true for the standards that apply safety signs, labels and markings since they form the basis for codes, regulations and legal definitions for “adequate warnings.” Our long-term dedication to writing and revising the standards in our field is our way of giving back. You see, as a company, we’re working with the finest safety professionals in so many industries, making their products and facilities safer, that we have unparalleled application experience in the use of the standards in our field. Sharing this knowledge to improve the standards written by committees at ANSI, ISO, NFPA, UL®, OSHA – wherever safety needs to be visually communicated – helps to achieve our overall goal of making the world a safer place.
