Clarion Safety to Present Course on ANSI and ISO Safety Label Best Practices at University of Wisconsin

Posted by Clarion Safety Systems | 5th May 2022

Are you looking for training for you or your team on product safety and liability, including the latest best practices and standards updates?

Each spring, the University of Wisconsin offers a professional development course on on-product warnings and instructions. This year’s event, “Using Warnings and Instructions to Increase Safety and Reduce Liability,” is not-to-be-missed. It’s designed especially for engineers, technical writers, product safety specialists, insurance groups and others responsible for creating or reviewing warnings and instructions.

Rather than the traditional in-person conference, this year’s event will be virtual to protect the health of attendees and presenters during the ongoing pandemic, as well as enable easier attendance for those from long distances. The online course takes place over several days – from June 7 to 9, 2022 – with different safety and liability experts featured each day.

Clarion Safety’s Presentation: A Focus on ANSI, ISO, and Labeling Best Practices
Clarion Safety’s director of standards compliance, Angela Lambert, will be one of this year’s presenters, with an in-depth session on understanding key standards for safety labels and signs in the U.S. and internationally (focusing on ANSI Z535, ISO 3864-2 and the EU Machinery Directive), label content elements and label material/durability requirements. A full scope of Angela’s course is detailed below:

The ANSI Z535 Standards for Product Safety Signs and Labels

  • Guidelines for content of product safety signs (hazard nature, seriousness, consequence, avoidance)
  • Guidelines for the format of product safety signs (signal word, color, pictorials, word messages)

  • EC machine safety directive

International Standard Harmonization

Additional Course Information
