The University of Wisconsin-Madison’s 31st 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 “Warnings and Instructions 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 24 to 26, 2019.
“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 discussions on the latest warnings technology as defined by the ANSI Z535.4 and ISO 3864-2 standards – including new safety label formats recently adopted by ISO – as well as international safety labeling requirements like the Machinery Directive.
At Clarion Safety, Lambert heads the company’s standards compliance initiatives. She has 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 for product safety, including 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.
This year’s three-day course centers around product safety management best practices, legal topics and leading edge issues. 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.
According to the College of Engineering, regarding its department’s core values and impact, “Our alumni base is more than 50,000 strong – and includes people whose job titles not only include the word “engineer,” but also range from astronaut to CEO to entrepreneur and many, many, many more. They are deeply proud of their engineering education and the opportunities it has presented them. They are part our college’s past, present and future of making a difference beyond our campus, and through them, our college has influenced some of the greatest achievements in the world—including the Hoover Dam, the Panama Canal, and the development of the integrated circuit.”
