MILFORD, Pa. (PRWEB) September 15, 2020
The University of Wisconsin-Madison’s 32nd Annual Product Liability Conference will feature a course on warnings and instructions from Angela Lambert, a safety and liability industry expert from Clarion Safety Systems, a leading designer and manufacturer of safety labels, signs and tags.
Lambert’s session, titled “On-Product Warnings: Standards and Trends for Domestic and Global Markets,” is part of the university’s ‘Advanced Products’ course through its College of Engineering – Engineering Professional Development department, and takes place September 29 to October 1, 2020.
“The UW’s conference is a go-to event for product safety. I look forward to sharing the latest warnings news – including considerations for our COVID-19 world,” Lambert says.
“Failure to warn” and “inadequate warnings” top product liability allegations. Lambert will present key considerations on creating effective warnings for both domestic and export markets. That will include information on the latest warnings technology as defined by the ANSI Z535.4 and ISO 3864-2 standards. The discussion will also center on the most recent updates to these standards and those anticipated in 2021, as well as warnings considerations for our COVID-19 world.
At Clarion Safety, Lambert heads the company’s standards compliance initiatives. She has more than fifteen years of experience in the safety and manufacturing industry, helping product safety engineers solve their warnings and liability challenges. Lambert is actively involved at the leadership level in the ANSI and ISO standards. She’s chair of ANSI Z535.1, the standard that focuses on colors used in visual safety communication, as well as a delegate representative to ANSI for the ISO/TC 145 SC2 WG 1 committee, responsible for the library of ISO 7010 registered symbols and the ISO 3864 set of standards.
Rather than the traditional in-person conference, this year’s event will be virtual to protect the health of attendees and presenters during the COVID-19 pandemic. The three-day course centers around current and emerging product liability prevention practices from experienced product safety management professionals including consulting engineers, product safety standards experts, and a defense attorney.
It features product safety management information geared toward industrial and commercial equipment manufacturers along with companies who insure them. Course participants are typically safety and design engineers but also include writers of warnings and safety literature, liability and product managers, in-house counsel and outside experts. Other topics to be covered at this year’s conference will include product safety manuals, engineering and human factors, product safety management systems and more.
