In my lecture, I’ll explain how risk assessment and the OSHA/ANSI standards can be used to create safety sign systems aimed at helping to reduce accidents and prevent liability exposure.
Milford, PA (PRWEB) September 04, 2014
Clarion Safety Systems, a leading designer and manufacturer of safety signs and labels, announced today its participation in the National Safety Council’s (NSC) Annual 2014 Congress and Expo to be held September 13 – 19 in San Diego, CA. As one of the experts selected to lecture on the latest issues and trends facing safety, health and environmental professionals, Clarion CEO Geoffrey Peckham will present an educational session on OSHA/ANSI safety sign systems as a new risk reduction technique.
Peckham, who serves as chair of both the ANSI Z535 Committee for Safety Signs and Colors and the U.S. Technical Advisory Group to ISO Technical Committee 145 – Graphical Symbols, will present on Monday, September 15 at 1:45 p.m. in a session in the “Emerging Issues” track titled, “New Risk-Reduction Technique: OSHA/ANSI Safety Sign Systems.”
“Many safety professionals aren’t familiar with OSHA’s recent safety sign regulation changes – changes that go way beyond GHS. I’m pleased to be able to discuss this with the leaders in workplace safety at this year’s NSC expo,” says Peckham. “In my lecture, I’ll explain how risk assessment and the OSHA/ANSI standards can be used to create safety sign systems aimed at helping to reduce accidents and prevent liability exposure.”
Peckham’s background in the field includes more than two decades of experience in actively advancing safety communications. He has led and continues to lead both the U.S. and international efforts to harmonize standards in the area of safety signs, labels and markings; this includes contributing to the leadership and direction of ANSI, ISO, OSHA and NFPA safety codes.
