Incorporating appealing characters, realistic textures, and 5S-appropriate props, Sanders makes each suite come alive with a 3-D look. Originally designed as a poster, the infographic is visually impactful, engaging and friendly – a refreshing approach to a topic that has been the subject of many technical articles.

Sanders’ work brings to five the number of infographics created by Graphic Products, Inc., whose thermal transfer printers and industrial printing supplies are used in safety communications and lean manufacturing. The other four include: OSHA Worker Safety, Deadliest & Safest Cities for Workers, Arc Flash Boundary and Globally Harmonized System of Chemical Labeling (GHS) – all created by graphic designer Joe Hanson. The company has developed an expansive catalog of content designed to influence safety behavior.

We’ll continue to explore new mediums to communicate these messages.”
