    When I left work, I had to drive under a rinse, like a car wash, that would clean all the melamine powder off my car so it didnt fade the car paint. The melamine factory wasnt a great place to work. Thats why I went into the environment field. At UL, were not focused on affecting emissions during the manufacturing process, but as manufacturers make lower-emitting products, it actually ends up reducing worker exposure in the plant. When we visit plants after a company has had their products Greenguard certified, the workers often tell us that their work environment is much better and they dont get headaches or need to blow their nose every hour. Surprisingly, the impact for sustainable products reaches all the way through the supply chain. My name is Scott Steady, and #IamUL.

    If you travel internationally, you will need to buy travel power adapters in order to use your plug-in electrical devices. Thats a prime example of what happens when safety standards are not harmonized. Not only does the harmonization of safety standards make it easier to travel, but it also reduces barriers that restrict trade, and helps to ensure products can be effectively and safely used in other parts of the world. Global markets rely on safe, compatible products that can easily move across borders. We work with many stakeholders to develop useful and meaningful standards. This includes governments, consumers and industry among other stakeholders to promote those standards to ensure they are used to allow safe products to be used across borders with the least restriction possible. That''s why standards are so important in a global economy. My name is John Thompson, and #iamul. #standardsmatter #worldstandardsday #safetystandards http://ulstandards.ul.com/standardsmatter/

    Its hard to count the fire that doesnt happenbut, certainly over my career, the trends of fire related deaths seem to have gone down. I feel that some part of what Ive worked on has a role in that protecting those that protect others. Were working to protect firefighters and help them go home to their families after they''ve done their job. Theres a good feeling in the work that we''re doing.
