ANSI Z535 and How it Revolutionized the Field of On-Product Warnings—Part 1

speaker-Geoffrey-PeckhamWhen the U.S. standard for product safety labels, ANSI Z535.4 Standard for Product Safety Signs and Labels, was published in 1991, it gave manufacturers the tool they needed to develop good product warnings that could more effectively communicate safety messages, helping to prevent accidents. Geoffrey Peckham, CEO of Clarion Safety Systems and chair of the ANSI Z535 Committee for Safety Signs and Colors, discusses how the standard met the requirements of manufacturers across industries and products and how its practical rules for content have led to today’s best practice labels.
