PRODUCT SAFETY WARNINGS & INSTRUCTIONS

Drs. Miller and Lehto of Miller Engineering have written four books on the topics of designing and evaluating labels, warnings, instructions, owner's manuals and other types of product information. Often these books provide a framework for the following aspects of warning label design:

  • Designing on package, within package, and on-products labels, warnings and information
  • Designing warnings and instructions
  • Evaluating proposed product information
  • Reviewing and modifying existing product information
  • Developing programs for clients to evaluate warning effectiveness

In providing assistance in this area, the Miller Engineering staff draws upon the writings and collections of historical materials from Dr. Miller's thirty years of experience. This, in addition to the fifteen years of forensic and research studies conducted by other senior staff at Miller Engineering, has resulted in an extensive historical library in the areas of human factors, ergonomics, product safety, occupational safety, machine guarding, government and consensus safety standards. And, of course, the four books on warnings which have been written by our staff and associates have resulted in a part of our library of approximately 1200 publications addressing warnings and instructions alone. Our library allows us to prepare both contemporary reports and state of the art analyses geared to a specific year a product was manufactured or sold. What does not exist in our library is researched and retrieved through our local and on-line access to the University of Michigan library system, as well as all of the customary Internet resources.

Our research and design activities have resulted in numerous publications on a great variety of engineering topics. An extensive list of publications, as well as some samples of our work products, can be found below.
