For Facilities/Production Compliance Members
Safety signs and equipment labels in your production facility play a vital role in maintaining a safe workplace and minimizing workplace accidents. For AFIA members, Clarion offers special pricing on our OSHA/ANSI Z535-compliant safety sign product line, as well as a 5 pack label program – featuring the labels in our AFIA/Clarion program but with lower minimum order quantities to better meet your needs for equipment within your facility. By incorporating the most advanced symbols, color-coding and formatting principles into our products, you can be confident that your Clarion safety sign and safety label systems are state-of-the-art. What’s more, having uniformity between the safety signs in your facility and labels on your products has an important benefit: consistency. When it comes to warnings, consistency means familiarity and increased comprehension, all of which are part of effective safety communication.
