The first regulation requiring product warnings appeared in the United States in 1927 with the Federal Caustic Poison Act. Today, a wide variety of product warnings are dictated by standards and regulations. 

 While ensuring compliance with relevant standards regarding warnings is useful, product safety professionals should also consider whether additional warnings are needed, and be familiar with methods for developing such warnings.

 This webinar will walk listeners through steps that are typical of a warnings development process:

·       Project planning

·      Understanding hazards and choosing what to warn about

·      Developing draft safety messages

·      Evaluating and finalizing safety messages

·      Ongoing monitoring and periodic review

Our speaker, Steven Hall M.S.E., CPSM, is the Senior Consultant, Director of Hazard Communication Consultations at Applied Safety and Ergonomics, Inc.  Mr. Hall assists product manufacturers in developing warnings, as well as providing expert testimony regarding warnings in product liability matters. For many years he has been a leader in the development of ANSI and ISO standards related to warnings, and he is currently the chair of the ANSI Z535.4 subcommittee on Product Safety Signs and Labels.
