Risk Assessment Services Now Offered by Clarion Safety Systems
Date:7/31/2018

Clarion Safety Systems, a leading designer and manufacturer of safety labels and signs, has expanded its portfolio to offer risk assessments as a complementary service for both product and workplace safety professionals.

“Risk assessments are critical for the big picture of safety, as well as for developing effective safety labels and safety signs,” says Ron Crawford, CEO of Clarion Safety Systems. “As a hands-on partner for comprehensive product and workplace safety solutions, offering these services is a natural progression for our company, in line with our clients’ needs.”

Risk assessment involves considering the probability and severity of outcomes that can result from potentially hazardous situations – a key part of both product and workplace safety. It is a formal process for identifying hazards and evaluating and analyzing risks associated with those hazards; the next step is either eliminating the hazards or controlling those risks that can’t be eliminated to minimize the potential for injury.

Clarion’s risk assessment services include:

  • Product risk assessments

Product-related risk assessments can help manufacturers improve product/equipment safety, reduce risk and comply with applicable legal requirements. From a legal perspective, “reasonably foreseeable” hazards must be defined as well as “reasonable” ways to mitigate risks associated with hazards that cannot be designed out. With risk assessment, potential hazards can be identified with solutions provided as early as possible in the product’s life cycle. They can be done during the concept stage of the product’s design, during the final stage of design, prototype production and testing, on a final manufactured product, and after placement in the market if an accident occurs or if an unforeseen safety concern arises. With many products, hazards remain even after the best safety engineering design solutions are in place; risk assessments can help determine which potential hazards deserve on-product labels as a means to further communicate safety and reduce risk.

  • Workplace risk assessments

Workplace-related risk assessment, sometimes referred to as job hazard analysis, can help to identify hazards and risks, as well as proper control means using hierarchy of controls decision-making to reduce risks to acceptable levels. As organizations look to implement processes to continually improve workplace safety in line with safety management system objectives, the ability to accurately communicate residual risks to workers, subcontractors and guests becomes critically important. When hazards can’t be eliminated from an area or designed out of a process, facility safety sign systems are a means to communicate residual risk and reinforce procedures, safety training and the use of personal protective equipment (PPE). Safety sign systems are part of a risk communication/risk reduction strategy, and can complement and support other critical risk reduction controls, like training.

“Risk assessment and management systems standards from ANSI and ISO – including ANSI Z10, ANSI B11, ISO 31000, ISO 45001 – represent today’s best practices in this area and are useful tools to help guide the risk assessment process,” says Crawford. “Turning to third party experts can help ensure risk assessments use these best practices, create a formal process based on the needs at hand, and allow effective processes and outcomes to be established in line with a comprehensive safety strategy.”

Clarion has a longstanding history with the best practice safety communication standards – and collaborating with customers to implement them in order to maximize safety and reduce risk. The company has spent the last 30 years helping to lead the ANSI and ISO standards, and working hand in hand with clients to communicate safety messages in line with these best practices, as well as their industry-specific requirements.
