Ralph Nader Calls for Standards on Glass Furniture
consumer safety advocate and former presidential candidate Ralph
Nader asked the glass industry why there were no standards for wired
glass on Friday. He delivered the keynote speech at the Americas'
Glass Association annual show last week in Las Vegas, held in conjunction
with the Independent Glass Association's annual conference.
Speaking to a full house that included members of the architectural
glass, auto glass and window film industries, Nader also addressed
the evolution and hazards of wired glass and the importance of code
Nader, the author of Unsafe at Any Speed, has built a reputation
for propelling change at a higher level to protect consumers, including
getting seat belts mandated in cars and creating groups such as
the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
