ISO Symbols for Safety Signs and Labels
 
02:16
Clarion Safety Systems is in a unique position to supply product manufacturers, workplaces and public areas with the most up-to-date, standards compliant safety signs, labels and markings. In 1995, the process began in ISO to re-write the principle global standard pertaining to safety signs and colors, ISO 3864. Mr. Peckham, the founder of Clarion Safety, explains how the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) uses symbols, vocabulary, and color to standardize safety signage on a worldwide basis. Visit the Resource Center (click the link below) on the Clarion website to learn more about the safety standards that apply to your safety signs and labels. Visit us online: http://www.clarionsafety.com/?utm_source=youtube.com&utm_medium=social-organic&utm_content=iso-symbols&utm_campaign=youtube2014 Connect with us: Twitter: https://twitter.com/clarionsafety Linkedin: https://www.linkedin.com/company/clarion-safety-systems Facbook: https://www.facebook.com/clarionsafety Video Transcript: [00:00:05] ISO stands for the International Organization for Standardization. It was in France and so that's why it comes out ISO instead of IOS and the ISO Technical Committee 145 standardizes graphical symbols on a worldwide basis as well as safety sign formats and safety label formats and colors and how you integrate the symbols and colors onto signage. So safety can be communicated on a worldwide basis consistently. That's the key consistency. Yellow is used on a warning sign and get a warning triangle and it's the background color for a black symbol and it indicates that a potential hazard is present. And then there are prohibitions signs it's a red circle with a red slash going through it at a 45 degree angle upper left to lower right. And it has a black graphic symbol behind it. And those signs indicate something that you should not do or you have the potential to interact with a hazard and get hurt. Then you have mandatory action signs and these are blue circles. White graphic and they indicate an action that you should take in order to avoid a hazard. Typically you might use those for like personal protective equipment wearing hardhats or wearing eye protection that type of thing. And then you have the symbols having to do with fire equipment. There are red square with a white flame determinative element and a white graphical symbol indicating what the equipment is such as a fire extinguisher or a fire alarm and then you have green squares with white graphics on them and therefore the location of safety equipment or safe condition like the cross which would be for use for first day. [00:01:38][92.4] [00:01:38] The running man going through an open door and that's indicated there is an emergency exit in this direction. That type of thing. So green red blue yellow in ISO they all indicate a different type of safety message. So as you get closer to the sign you'd see not just the color but the symbol and the symbol would tell you what these specific messages. That's the whole vocabulary of how colors used in ISO.

Effective Safety Symbols, Signs and Labels
 
03:18
Clarion Safety Systems explains the elements that make an effective safety sign or label, including the use of safety symbols, formatting, and the importance of using "best practice" standards. The toll on a company - both emotionally and financially - is significant when an accident occurs. Its something to be avoided at all costs. There are many different factors that go into an effective warning, from symbols to content to color. That's why a globalized use of symbols, formatting, color and the amount of level of content that goes on signage is key. Visit the Learning Center (click the link below) on the Clarion website to learn more about effective safety signs and labels. Visit us online: http://www.clarionsafety.com/Learning-Center?utm_source=YT&utm_medium=Vid&utm_content=Effective_Labels&utm_campaign=S-YT-14 Connect with us: Twitter: https://twitter.com/clarionsafety Linkedin: https://www.linkedin.com/company/clarion-safety-systems Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/clarionsafety Video Transcript: The emotional toll on a company when an accident occurs and someone's killed and the equipment that they sell or they lose their fingers or their arm or they're crushed… it's a process you want to avoid it at all costs not only for the pain and suffering of the person that's hurt but there's a lot of pain and suffering in the company itself the process of designing a safety sign our label. It's fascinating taking the clients message saying here are the things we need to warn about how best can we do that. The first part is to understand what part of those messages can be done in a pictorial form in a symbolic form. It allows you to find the sign, to be able to see it and not really have to read it. That image speaks a thousand words. You have to be clear and you have to be brief. On the one hand you want to be able to say exactly what needs to be said so that people understand the message what the hazard is they understand the consequence of interaction they understand the seriousness of the hazard and you also have to tell them how to avoid the hazard. But if you do it in a like a long laundry list set of rules or your text is just goes off on the deep end in terms of content people will ignore the sign. If every state had their own highway signage and you were pulled up to an intersection and there was a nice triangular green sign that said stop on it in black and you're looking at that and say what are they doing, I'm used to a red octagonal sign that says stop. Well why were used to that it's because it's been standardized on a federal basis. We're trying to do the same thing with safety: a globalized use of symbols a globalized use - formatting and color and the amount of level of content that goes on signage. You know Clarion's referred by some of the largest insurance companies in the world. They don't want the accidents to happen. They don't want the liability. They don't want the cost involved both the emotional cost and the financial cost. Knowing that none of our customers to our knowledge have ever been sued for a failure to warn or an adequate warning that's the greatest benefit. 98% of what we produce is done in our production facilities right here in Milford, Pennsylvania and we've invested in digital print technology that's second to none. You put a label on a product and you want it to stay there for the life of the product. We're working oftentimes it's machinery that lasts 20, 30, 40 years out in the field and sometimes even outdoor conditions and there's no tolerance for that label coming off. We know the standards we help to write them and we know how they can be applied to all different types of hazards across all different industries. There's nobody doing what we do there are printers out there that'll print signs they'll even customize signs for you but you have to tell them what you want on that sign. There's no expertise on their part that comes into play. If we can protect the people from injury in the first place to mitigate the risk reduce it the lawsuits don't happen.

NEMA "NEMAcast" Podcast Interview with Clarion CEO Geoffrey Peckham – September 2015 (Part One)
 
07:37
In part one of this September 2015 interview on the podcast program "NEMAcast," the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) explores ANSI Z535 and how it revolutionized the field of on-product warnings. When 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.
