PPE Testing Overview

Arc Testing

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is the last line of defense protecting individuals from harm when engineering and administrative controls have failed. It is used in many industries to protect against such things as biological and radiological contamination or physical threats such as fire and arc flash. It is important that it works as expected when it is needed.

We are an impartial third-party provider that can test to exacting industry standards. With facilities in Canada and the United States, we offer national and international testing capabilities including:

  • An ISO 17025-accredited testing laboratory providing a wide range of testing services for a variety of PPE applications rooted in arc flash protection
  • The first accredited commercial provider of full-scope ASTM F2100 medical face mask testing in Canada
  • A 40,000 square foot facility where plastic suits are cleaned, hand-checked, and inspected, to ensure it is safe to wear and will protect workers
  • Testing services for safety equipment such as insulating gloves and blankets
