Our involvement on the U.S. and international standards committees in visual safety communication is at the leadership level. We’re committed to putting our knowledge into practice by being our clients' partner and resource for warnings. Through that collaboration, our goal of working together to make the world a safer place is taking shape.

Our current standards credentials include:

  • Member ANSI Z535 Committee for Safety Signs and Colors: The committee in charge of the U.S. standards for safety colors, signs, symbols, labels, tags and safety information in manuals.
  • Member U.S. TAG to ISO/TC 145: The committee in charge of international standards for safety signs, colors, and symbols.
  • Member U.S. TAG to ISO/PC 283: The committee in charge of the ISO 45001 Occupational Safety and Health Management Systems standard.

Through the years, we’ve been privileged to share our expertise on many industry initiatives to better standardize safety communications and protect people around the world.

  • As a member of the U.S. TAG to ISO/PC 283, being part of the development process for ISO 45001, the world’s first occupational health and safety management systems standard, published in 2018.
  • Spearheading OSHA's 2013 update to its outdated workplace safety sign rules which, after 6 years of Clarion Safety lobbying, resulted in nationwide regulations with references to the best practice ANSI Z535 standards.
  • Providing leadership to the NYC building code committee for skyscraper evacuation markings after 9/11.
  • Submitting the change proposals that updated the safety symbols NFPA uses in its standards related to fire safety equipment location signs and evacuation marking signs.
  • Submitting the change proposals that resulted in NFPA adopting photoluminescent stairwell markings in the NFPA 101 Life Safety Code – a standard referenced by nearly every state and municipal building code to ensure safety is designed into every building.
  • Leading the taskforce for the SEMI S1 Standards Committee to give the semiconductor industry a standard for formatting equipment safety labels. The standard, published in 2002, foreshadowed the publication of the ISO 3864-2 standard for product safety labels, incorporating the best in both ANSI Z535 and ISO 3864 design principles.
  • Serving as the principal author of the draft versions of the ISO 3864-2 standard for product safety labels. This standard subsequently elevated the art of product safety labeling worldwide, giving much needed guidance where none existed before.
  • Leading the revision of the ANSI Z535.2 Standard for Environmental and Facility Safety Signs
  • Donating safety sign design services to help the ANSI Z136 laser standards with its illustrations of laser area safety signs – signs that are key to protecting people in workplaces with lasers in use.
