Milford, PA (PRWEB) May 29, 2012
Clarion Safety Systems, a leading designer and manufacturer of safety signs and labels, announces its Silver Sponsorship of the American Society of Safety Engineers’ (ASSE) Safety 2012 Professional Development Conference and Exposition to be held June 3-6 in Denver, CO.
The Safety 2012 sponsorship builds on the longstanding partnership between Clarion and ASSE – the oldest professional safety organization, committed to protecting people, property and the environment – as part of the company’s efforts to support safety and health professionals and reduce risk in the workplace. Other recent initiatives include partnering with the ASSE Foundation to sponsor an annual $5,000 scholarship, the Clarion Safety Doctoral Scholarship, awarded each spring to an aspiring safety communication professional pursuing a doctoral degree in occupational safety and health.
In addition to its Silver Sponsorship, Clarion will participate in ASSE’s Safety 2012 Exposition by exhibiting at booth #932, sharing information on the power of semiotics and a systems approach to safety communication, as well as providing resources on understanding OSHA’s adoption of the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS). Additionally, Clarion Safety Systems president, Geoffrey Peckham, will lead Educational Session 667, “A New Era in Visual Safety Communications: ANSI Z535.2-2011”, and Clarion is a luncheon sponsor during the conference, presenting a short video on the power of safety semiotics to attendees.
“We look forward to talking with ASSE professionals at Safety 2012 to learn about their work, their hazards, and the ways we can use Clarion expertise in semiotics to help create the new benchmark of safety communication in their industries,” Peckham says. “By working together, we can take a dramatic step forward in achieving our common goal – keeping people safe.”
