We’ve developed a safety sign format that uses the latest warnings technology – the ANSI and ISO best practice standards – including an internationally-recognized safety symbol to warn about the presence of alligators.
Milford, PA (PRWEB) July 19, 2016
Clarion Safety Systems, Clarion Safety Systems, a leading designer and manufacturer of safety signs and safety labels, has added its best practice ‘Alligators Present’ safety sign to its online catalog for ease of ordering.
“From the recent viral video of the giant alligator on a Palmetto golf course to the tragedy that took a young boy’s life too soon at a Walt Disney resort, alligators are top of mind for many that are tasked with safety and risk management for public and private premises,” says Derek Eversdyke, Director of Facility Safety Products at Clarion.
“We’ve seen an uptick in interest in our alligator warning signs and customizable environmental safety sign systems – from golf courses to universities. While we often work hand in hand with organizations to create custom signs, we’re also now making them readily available through our online safety sign catalog.”
Many public and private premises in the southeastern U.S. have problems with alligators. In Florida alone, 595 alligator bites on humans, 373 of which were unprovoked, have been documented, according to statistics from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (as of March 2015); 22 of these bites resulted in human fatalities.
Safety signs are critical in warning people – whether it’s golfers, hotel guests, students, or grounds staff – of the presence of alligators. Posting signs with complete content is necessary to keep people safe from harm and fulfill the property owner’s legal duty to warn.
However, most of today’s environmental safety signage consists of text-only word messages or formats that fail to use the latest best practice standards. Their outdated and overly simplistic style may not be enough to get people’s attention or to prevent premises liability exposure should an accident occur.
“That’s where Clarion’s expertise is. We’ve developed a safety sign format that uses the latest warnings technology – the ANSI and ISO best practice standards – including an internationally-recognized safety symbol to warn about the presence of alligators.”
The features of the company’s signs include:
- The right graphical symbols to communicate even across language barriers
- Proper color coding to bring added noticeability
- Precise formatting, corresponding with modern risk assessment methodologies
- More substantial content to satisfy today’s legal requirements
- Premium quality materials for warnings built to last in their environment of use
As an industry leader, Clarion regularly collaborates with its customers to create best practice safety sign systems, designed to be repeatedly posted along a waterway or other problem area. They routinely customize signs to convey tailored information specific to the environment at hand, including the presence of additional hazards.
