Portland, OR, September 21, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- Industrial Safety Solutions, a leader in labeling technologies designed to enhance workplace safety, released a statement today concerning the upcoming 2008 National Electric Code (NEC). In their statement they address the growing need for employee notification of hazards through proper OSHA and ANSI compliant labeling.
The current NEC, which was last updated in 2005, already contains some information on how to properly label electrical hazards. With the upcoming release of the revised NEC scheduled for January of 2008, John Harris, Senior Field Sales Engineer & FSE General Manger, states that “it is [Industrial Safety Solutions’] expectation that this latest release of the NEC will further emphasize the need for proper electrical hazard labeling. Employees have a right to be notified of electrical hazards through labeling which is easy to read, up-to-date and which follows applicable industry and government standards."
To help address the need for OSHA and ANSI compliant labeling in the electric industry, Industrial Safety Solutions has developed a line of products for identifying arc flash and other electric hazards. John notes that “Through our ANSI and OSHA standard labeling products, Industrial Safety Solutions provides a way for companies of any size to design and produce their own custom electrical safety and arc flash warning labels.”
What makes their electric hazard labeling products unique is the relatively low cost barrier. Traditionally, custom warning labels have been cost prohibitive for all but the largest companies. Industrial Safety Solutions provides products that bring on-site printing of custom hazard warning labels to electrical contracting companies of all sizes.
