Chris Burden will be giving a presentation at TCUK19 entitled “An explanation of safety notices and how to build them in Flare“.
Health and safety information in documentation is typically managed and controlled using standards and guidelines.
In this presentation we will review the standards and guidelines that need to be considered when writing documentation for the EU market. Then we will look at how these harmonized standards relate to the federal US system and their documentation requirements.
We will focus on health and safety issues and the use and design of safety notices; what they need to include, what they are used for, and recommended content.
At the end of the session we will share some of the CSS and Flare tricks and tips we have developed at 3di for creating single-sourced safety notices that can be used for multiple outputs, while still complying with standards.
