AbstractSafety communication, especially safety instructions and warning messages, are ruled mainly by the U.S. Standard ANSI Z535 series. The international standard IEC 82079-1 is in accordance with ANSI but has additional requirements. EU regulations have no connection with ANSI but make use of product-specific harmonized standards. These harmonized standards often have requirements on safety messages. During the lecture, we discuss how we can meet both the EU regulations with harmonized standards and the internationalized requirements based on standards as ANSI Z535 and IEC 82079-1.
