SAF-T-GARD’s Voltgard Test Lab Earns Industry Accreditation

The Voltgard Test Lab at Saf-T-Gard International, Inc. has recently joined the ranks of the NAIL-accredited labs. NAIL4PET (North American Independent Laboratories for Protective Equipment Testing) helps develop uniformity in the testing of electrical workers’ personal protective equipment and works in close association with the American Society of Testing Materials (ASTM) and the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). NAIL accredited laboratories are charged to promote service, candor, justice, and the public welfare in safety.

NAIL4PET accreditation and membership also gives Voltgard the opportunity to network with test lab peers and share best practices. “We look forward to contributing to the NAIL4PET organization, including learning from some of our peers,” said Richard A. Rivkin, Saf-T-Gard’s president and CEO.

Voltgard started in the early 1980s as a rubber insulating glove and blanket testing lab. Today, that lab has become the largest independent dielectric test lab in the United States, and Saf-T-Gard’s Voltgard branded electrical safety items, including rubber insulating blankets and leather protector gloves, are recognized worldwide as products offering unparalleled quality.
