Description

For the first time, people who design, produce, or use hazard warning signs, labs, or tags have a definitive source for safety symbol art. Safety Symbols Art is the first and only commercial source of camera-ready and computer disk art for the SEGD safety symbol system a system designed to save lives and prevent injuries. Each of the symbols in this book has been tested and meets the standards approved in 1991 by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) as Z535, the most far-reaching set of U.S. safety standards developed to date. Now you can reproduce these quickly, easily, and with the assurance that you are complying with ANSI Z535's national safety symbol standards. The ANSI Z535 standards recommend that every American safety label, tag, and sign include a safety symbol designed and tested to meet ANSI's criteria. That makes Safety Symbols Art a must-have for any American company that produces consumer products or operates a manufacturing facility. Graphic designers, corporate designers, and product designers will turn again and again to this one-of-a-kind reference. All 40 safety messages identified in ANSI Z535 are included both as line art and on disk, ready to save you time and money. All in one convenient source you'll find: hazard warning messages, general safety messages. mandatory action messages, and prohibited action messages. In addition, the author includes a history of symbol systems and standardization. No one is better qualified than Nora Olgyay to create this hands-on resource. She is a former Chairperson of the ASC Z535.3 Subcommittee on Safety Symbols, and has dedicated her expertise to bringing you a reliable, easy-to-use resource in the hope that the widespread use of these symbols will make the world a safer place to live and work.
