Clarion Safety Systems Expands Safety Products in Wake of COVID-19 at Pennsylvania Plant

05/26/2020
Clarion Safety Systems, a leading manufacturer of safety labels, signs and tags, has expanded its product line to offer a full portfolio of COVID-19 safety products at its facility in Milford, Pennsylvania.

According to company officials, “these new visual safety solutions can help businesses to keep employees, visitors and customers safe by supporting social distancing policies, reminding of hygiene protocols, and reinforcing PPE requirements.”

“We’ve always taken our role in providing effective visual safety communication products extremely seriously. After all, not only is hazard communication fundamental in reducing risk to workers, it also helps to keep companies in compliance with applicable codes and standards, allowing them to continue to make their products and services available,” says Ron Crawford, CEO of Clarion Safety.

“During these unprecedented times, the part that our company plays in product and workplace safety has taken on an even more amplified meaning,” he said. That’s why we took early steps necessary to stay fully operational over the past months to support the needs of our customers; many of them are in essential industries like medical equipment manufacturing, chemical processing and distribution, supplying life-saving resources to combat COVID-19."

“And it’s why we’re offering this new line of workplace safety products, especially critical right now to support the needs of shuttered facilities that are beginning the process of reopening,” he added.

Clarion Safety’s new product line is specifically designed to support back to work plans in helping to stop the spread of the virus, company officials said. For example, the solutions contain messaging to inform visitors of curbside pickup instructions, to remind workers how best to disinfect hands, and to communicate general safety precautions like maintaining social distancing and wearing a face mask.

Officials from Clarion Safety noted the company specializes in designing safety signs that are not only compliant with OSHA regulations, but use the latest American National Standards Institute and International Organization for Standardization warnings technology to more effectively create awareness and explain hazards specific to the issue at hand.

“OSHA currently only stipulates minimum requirements, the most basic level, for sign content and design. These simplified formats are common in today’s workplaces, but they’re not the only choice. The best practice principles offered in the ANSI and ISO standards are considered the state-of-the-art for today’s warnings,” says Angela Lambert, Clarion Safety’s Director of Standards Compliance.
