Posted by Bethany Savage on 26th Jan 2016

Here at Clarion, our expertise doesn’t stop at our safety sign and label products – we’re proud to be “go-to” experts in visual safety communication as well.

Our latest upcoming industry event: Clarion’s CEO, Geoffrey Peckham, and chair of the ANSI Z535 committee, will be a featured expert at the Defense Research Institute’s (DRI) 2016  Product Liability Conference. DRI’s 3-day seminar takes place February 3 – 5, 2016 in New Orleans, Louisiana and is an educational and networking event offering insight from in-house counsel, marquee trial and appellate lawyers, and other product liability experts.

Geoffrey will be part of a two-hour roundtable discussion on  product safety labeling and how adequate warnings can help defense attorneys win lawsuits. Joining him on the panel are Steven Hall, a senior consultant at Applied Safety and Ergonomics and chair of the ANSI Z535.4 Subcommittee on Product Safety Signs and Labels, Eric Junginger a partner from the law firm Hanson Bridgett LLP, and Cal Burnton, a partner from the law firm of Steptoe & Johnson LLP who has earned a national reputation for defending complex product liability and mass toxic tort cases.
