Comprehensive Information related to the subject of safety instructions and warning messages in technical Documentation

Contains free preview pages of the a concise guide to writing compliant and useful safety alerts

Demonstrates hundreds of downloadable ready-to-use symbols and templates

There is currently no lacking of more or less applicable standards and directives which deal with safety instructions, warning messages, and other related subjects. This is what makes the work of every “information provider” and “documentation producer” so challenging when trying to create instructions and messages that comply with all these standards and are informative and useful at the same time. The abundance of interrelated rules and guidelines does not necessarily make that task any easier. The books in the library (available as preview and full version as in-app purchase) contains detailed information on how to write such instructions and messages, as well as links to downloadable, ready-to-use symbols for high-resolution printing and web use. Moreover, samples of the practical implementation in the leading word processing software and DTP applications are described and can be downloaded separately.
