About VOSI
"Standards to Overthrow DEMOCKERIES"

  • VOSI is a standards development organization (SDO) that only writes consensus standards for "Public Safety", "Public Health" and the "Environment". This avoids the pitfalls of "special interest" standards which often conflict with the health and safety needs of people and may adversely effect the natural environment. VOSI research-based consensus standards are based on a new concept, "Humanistic Capitalism", which puts the safety and health needs of people and the environment ahead of the arrogant, "profit - only" motivation of capitalism.

  • "Humanistic Capitalism" requires that both manufacturers and governments be accountable and responsible for the effects of their products and actions on the health and safety of people and the environment. Democratic governments, as representatives of people and stewards of the environment, must insure that "Humanistic Capitalism" replaces capitalism. All present so-called democracies are in fact 'demockeries' which only represent powerful special interests at the expense of their citizens (see below for the definition of demockery). To use capitalism's 'bottom-line',  governments and corporations are being forced by VOSI to obey the US National Standards Strategy (USNSS) and the National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act of 1995 (NTTAA) and use standards which benefit the health and safety of people and the environment.

  • VOSI is attempting to form a worldwide link to allow people, industries and governments to participate in the consensus standards development process.

  • VOSI is a not-for-profit organization which has neither membership dues or formal meetings. Members are encouraged to communicate with each other by either fax or e-mail. The only income VOSI has is from the donations of viewers of its approved, research-based VOSI "Public Safety", "Public Health" & "Environmental" standards. All VOSI standards can be viewed on-line at no cost. Anyone interested in contributing to VOSI in order to help VOSI continue to provide free on-line standards click here.

  • VOSI encourages the public to vote on-line. Anyone who wishes to either comment on, or propose a new "Public Safety", "Public Health" or "Environmental" standard, should contact the VOSI chairman at dcmeserlian@voicesofsafety.com.

  • VOSI, the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and The American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) are 3 of the 210 "Private Sector Standards Sites" listed by the National Institutes of Standards & Technology (NIST). The VOSI/NIST SDO liaison committee notifies these SDOs, which include ASTM & ANSI, whenever VOSI standards are balloted. This allows members of these SDOs to participate in the VOSI consensus standards development process during both the standards development and public review phases.

  • Click here to see NIST public sector standards sites in addition to the private sector standards sites.

  • VOSI's "Technical Issues Review Board" (TIRB) makes decisions on all standards that conflict with VOSI standards based on a technical review. See the "Warning" under "Slip & Fall Standards" and also "Forensic Engineering". Neither ANSI or ASTM have a TIRB. 

  • VOSI invites ASTM and ANSI committees, which are typically represented by government and industry special interests, to jointly participate with the VOSI task groups in developing public safety, public health and environmental standards for people. 

  • VOSI invites all industries world-wide, who may be affected by our standards, to periodically visit the VOSI website. This notice, together with notices to VOSI liaison committees, constitutes our required public review of VOSI consensus standards.

Note: None of the above quotes, or the VOSI standards for improving the health and safety of people and the environment should be taken lightly !!!

VOSI is dedicated to overthrowing "Capitalism" and substituting "Humanistic Capitalism" (see "Public Health" V50.4 "Standard for World Health Organization Participation in VOSI Standards Development"). This revolution is in progress.

  • VOSI is requiring all levels of government (federal, state and local) to enforce the US National Standards Strategy (USNSS) (see V-Moving Forward 2 —Address the ongoing need for standards in support of health, safety and the environment), as incorporated in the NIST Memo of Understanding with ANSI and the National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act of 1995 (NTTAA) (see SEC. 12. STANDARDS CONFORMITY, sections 2b Section 2(b) of the National Institute of Standards and Technology Act , and new paragraph section 3 & 13) to utilize VOSI "Public Safety", "Public Health" & "Environmental Issues" standards. Both documents require that VOSI "Public Safety", "Public Health" & "Environmental Issues" be reviewed and utilized whenever applicable. Current VOSI standards require action by NIST, CPSC, FDA, CDC, DOEd, EPA and the Building Officials in local government. None of these federal agencies have reviewed or commented on VOSI standards (DEMOCKERY !).

VOSI members should click here to see the VOSI & Liaison committees whose members are notified whenever standards are being balloted.

Note: VOSI Liaison committees consist of people who are in responsible positions for enforcing both the USNSS and the NTTAA: the Interagency Committee on Standards Policy (ICSP) of the National Institute of Standards & Technology (NIST), the US Senate, the House of Representatives and the Member Nations of the United Nations.

Membership in VOSI is Free. We are inviting all visitors to this website to join VOSI. As a VOSI member, you can both ballot and comment on proposed VOSI standards and research reports. Activists are needed to contact the bureaucrats responsible for enforcing both the USNSS and the NTTAA.

VOSI V41.24 "Standard for Standards Terminology"
