University of Wisconsin’s Annual On-Product Warnings Course
Posted by Clarion Safety Systems | 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.
