University of Wisconsin’s Annual On-Product Warnings Course

Posted by Clarion Safety Systems on 7th Apr 2021

Are you looking for training for you or your team on product safety and liability?

Each spring, the University of Wisconsin offers a professional development course on on-product warnings and instructions. This year’s event 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/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 COVID-19 pandemic. The online course takes place over several days – from May 17 to 21, 2021 – with one safety and liability expert featured each day.

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 in the U.S. and internationally (focusing on ANSI Z535.4, ISO 3864-2 and the EU Machinery Directive), label content elements and label material/durability requirements. Her session also includes a team-based workshop designed to help you analyze warnings using today’s standards and best practices.

Topics explored by the other experts will include legal responsibility and duty to warn/instruct, writing and designing manuals and warnings and evaluating warnings and instructions.
