“Clarion has its finger on the pulse of the changing safety standards environment. As our company’s safety director, Clarion is our resource for product safety label design, aiding our hazard analysis team. I consider them another member of our team. Clarion's expertise makes it easier for us to make sure our safety labels comply with ANSI and ISO safety label standards. We work closely with their custom design department to personalize all of our labels.
We now have quality labels that withstand the elements and still convey our specialized warning needs. We recently needed a complex label to warn against multiple hazards. Going into the process, I thought it might be difficult to convey our needs. The Clarion team took our hand sketches and turned them into top-quality safety labels that creatively and effectively convey the necessary warnings. We are thrilled with the results.”
Kevin P. Nagle, Safety Director, TT Technologies, Inc.
Leader in trenchless technology, including piercing tools, guided boring tools, and directional drills
“The high number of labels we require and the large amount of data per label demands a high degree of attention and customer support. Clarion provides excellent customer service, accurate output, and on-time delivery.”
Jon D. Steinmetz, PE, Tennessee Valley Authority
Nation's largest public power company
“Clarion is not your average label-printing company. Clarion researches domestic and international standards and notifies us of changes—often months or years ahead of time, giving us time to adjust our inventory accordingly. Because of their ongoing involvement with the ANSI Z535 committee, we feel confident about revising our entire label line under their guidance. It is difficult to find useful information on the European Conformity (CE) marking process. But our contacts at Clarion gave us specific details about the safety labels used on our machine. When it was tested for compliance, not only did the decals and operations manuals pass, but the inspector made a special note that it was one of very few machines he had inspected that didn't require corrections.
Clarion's designers and translators work with our staff to develop labels that we can use throughout our product line, as well as the product lines of our sister companies. This has allowed us to significantly reduce labels in our inventory.
We put Clarion's labels on some test products and put these in a shipping container in south Florida. After several months, we found the labels still firmly attached to our test subjects, despite hurricane-force winds and hot, steamy weather. I'd say that Clarion labels are "hurricane rated.”
