Subject:Hazards words in ANSI 535 Z From:"Peter Ring, PRC" <prc -at- ISA -dot- DKNET -dot- DK> Date:Fri, 29 Aug 1997 12:59:03 +1
On 30 July Alexander von Obert wrote that ANSI 535 Z operates with
the following Hazard classes:
DANGER people can easily be hurt or killed
WARNING people could possibly be hurt of killed
CAUTION people could possibly be endangered and slightly hurt
...and less frequenty used:
NOTICE possibly dangerous sitatuion, goods might be damaged
IMPORTANT helpful information
I have a feeling, that NOTICE and IMPORTANT should be swapped, so
that the two lowest levels are:
IMPORTANT possibly dangerous sitatuion, goods might be damaged
NOTICE helpful information
Can anybody who owns the ANSI 535 Z standard confirm which one is the
correct one from the standard - if mentioned at all.
I have tried to get the standard, but in the first hand got the
wrong part (part 3) instead of part 1 or 2 where it - with my
knowledge now - most likely is mentioned.
I am in a hurry, as I need the info for teaching on Monday 1
September, so please e-mail me directly (I get the TECHWR-L in digest
