How can your labels effectively convey safety messages for your products or electrical equipment?

For the latest best practices, take a look at the August eiXtra e-newsletter from NEMA, the trade association for the electrical manufacturing industry, which features an article from Clarion, “Effective Product Safety Labels: Your Guide to Content.

The article is a featured guest column from our CEO, Geoffrey Peckham, who also serves as chair of the ANSI Z535 Committee for Safety Signs and Colors and the U.S. Technical Advisory Group to ISO Technical Committee 145 – Graphical Symbols.

In it, you’ll learn about the ANSI Z535.4 standard, the visual elements it specifies to include (signal word, symbol(s) and word message), instances where certain information may be omitted, and how complete content drives compliance with safety messages.

Visit NEMA’s website to take a look at our article, as well as the rest of the newsletter, which is packed with manufacturer, regulatory and standardization news for electroindustry professionals.
