San Ramon, Calif., September 2, 2010 — The board of directors of the Association of North American Independent Laboratories for Protective Equipment Testing, is pleased to announce the launch of their new website at http://www.nail4pet.org.
The website offers many useful features including: a list of member laboratories that are fully accredited according to the NAIL standards; as well as a list of laboratories which are in the process of being accredited; the organization's officers and bylaws; the application for accreditation; and an outline of the accreditation process.
NAIL is the premier accreditation agency for high voltage testing. Its mission is to certify that laboratories, which are cleaning and testing protective equipment worn by electricians and workers who must work around high voltage equipment, are testing in accordance with standards set by American Society of Testing Materials (ASTM) and American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and following OSHA regulations.
The organization inspects and audits laboratories to insure that all standards are met for high voltage testing of protective equipment. As new laboratories meet certification, and as new standards are developed, NAIL will feature this information on the new website.
About NAIL Nail was formed in 1978 by a group of independent laboratory owners as a means to better standardize important testing methods and insure better safety outcomes for customers. The organization meets twice annually in conjunction with the ASTM.
The organization shares new technical information among member labs and also provides a valuable oversight of excellent testing practices for those laboratories that are accredited.
