Testing and certification of safety equipment is essential in the electric power industry to both ensure worker protection and comply with industry regulatory standards.

We provide full on-site and off-site testing of insulated tools and equipment including bucket trucks, digger derricks, and other insulated devices, to meet any electrical contractor or utility needs. Our off-site testing can be scheduled to prevent downtime for your crews and our experts can guide you in testing, evaluation of new and prototype equipment, design of new tools, and improvement of legacy insulated tools.

Insulated tool and dielectric equipment testing is performed using ASTM, ANSI, CSA, IEC, IEEE, and other applicable standards in our laboratories with our state-of-the-art equipment. Tests include checking the ability of a tool or equipment to resist flashover or any other criteria desired by the client. Typically, this is non-destructive testing, but can also undertake destructive tests where necessary.

We provide custom testing programs, equipment work method development, and mobile testing services for most products, as well as a unique live-line tool repair service, including surface refinishing.
