ANSI Z535.6 – Safety Information in Collateral Material
Manufacturers, wholesalers, and stores. Technical writers, engineers, and product managers. Mountain Stream Group has developed our free Safety Information in Collateral Material white paper with you in mind.
This 42-page white paper uses 16 figures and everyday safety message presentation examples to simply and graphically layout the rules in the new ANSI Z535.6 standard. With this information, you’ll be able to develop collateral materials that will go a long way in protecting your customers from potential harm — and your company from product liability litigation.
The question and answer format defines.
- What are collateral materials.
- Who should apply the standard.
- What is a safety alert symbol, a signal word and a signal word panel.
- What is a safety message.
- The types of safety messages.
- How safety messages are to be presented.
“I’m updating documents of indeterminate age to include the current ANSI-approved safety information. The material in the whitepaper was lucid and clearly communicated. The use of the prohibited sign in style guide indicating correct and incorrect relative sizes of the symbols to text was great.”
“This document was very well presented. It clearly outlined the need for the standard and explained the specifics that could present problems. I will be using this white paper as part of my lecturing on Occupational Safety and Health to my students.”
