MILFORD, Pa. (PRWEB) September 07, 2021
The University of Wisconsin-Madison’s 33rd 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: ANSI Z535.4 and ISO 3864-2,” is part of the university’s ‘Advanced Products’ course through its College of Engineering – Engineering Professional Development department, and takes place September 20 to 23, 2021.
“Failure to warn” and “inadequate warnings” are 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. The session will also give participants an understanding of current considerations and implications for product safety labels and risk management, including the label format options, anticipated standards updates, and emerging trends and issues.
At Clarion Safety, Lambert heads the company’s standards compliance initiatives. She has over 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. She is 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 once again be virtual via UW-Madison Zoom to protect the health of attendees and presenters during the COVID-19 pandemic. The four-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.
