MILFORD, PA: Clarion Safety Systems, the designer and manufacturer of visual safety solutions, expands its portfolio with the launch of new products on safety labels for laser hazards.

Progress of formats and symbols related to safety labels used on laser products has always been a conundrum for the manufacturers, whether to comply with US regulations or meet the internationally accepted standards.

One of the critical building blocks for product safety labels is symbols so; Clarion has come up with a harmonized laser label production format which meets both the major standards:  The Food and Drug Administration’s Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH) followed by US market and International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is marked as a standard over international markets.

Safety labels play an integral role in company’s product safety and liability prevention efforts. Clarion’s safety labels can help to protect people from injury or death, decrease the potential for costly lawsuits.

Clarion's laser labels are available in their website's online catalogue, with customization options for CDRH labels and IEC labels. The company also offers packages where they produce all the labels a customer needs for a specific product.

As industries are inclining more towards symbols for communication to promote safety related messages and when this symbols combines with precise use of severity level panels to define risk, concise text messages ,it represents the new era in safety signs and labels. So Clarion developed new IEC label format product line which has kindled in the field of on-product safety labeling.

"We're pleased to be able to offer our customers a range of CDRH and IEC-compliant labels to choose from, as well as online resources that help to provide an understanding of the key standards and simplifies the process of finding the laser labels needed to meet their requirements” says Geoffrey Peckham ,CEO of Clarion Safety Systems.
