Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratories

OSHA developed this slide presentation for its compliance officers (CSHOs). However, the information contained in the slides can help employers and workers better understand certain product-approval requirements in OSHA safety standards. The products affected by these requirements must be approved (i.e., tested and certified) to help ensure they can be used safely. Moreover, they must be tested and certified by an organization recognized as an NRTL by OSHA. There are only infrequent exceptions to these requirements.

In order to ensure that the testing and certification has been done appropriately, OSHA has implemented the NRTL Program. The NRTL Program establishes the criteria that an organization must meet in order to be recognized as an NRTL by OSHA.

Tuberculosis

Tuberculosis (TB) is the leading cause of death due to an infectious agent in the world. Since 1985, the incidence of TB in the general U.S. population has increased 14 percent, reversing a 30-year downward trend. Outbreaks have occurred in hospitals, correctional institutions, homeless shelters, nursing homes, and residential care facilities for AIDS patients. Specific control measures recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and required by OSHA has contributed to a drop in TB cases in 1994 and 1995.

In February 1996, OSHA issued CPL 2.106, Enforcement Procedures and Scheduling for Occupational Exposure to Tuberculosis to protect workers against the hazards of TB.

Workplace Violence

Workplace violence has emerged as an important safety and health issue in today's workplace. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration's (OSHA's) response to the problem of workplace violence in certain industries has been the production of OSHA's guidelines and recommendations to those industries for implementing workplace violence prevention programs.

In 1996, OSHA published Guidelines for Preventing Workplace Violence for Health Care and Social Service Workers. The guidelines are based on OSHA's voluntary generic Safety and Health Program Management Guidelines.

In 1998, OSHA published Recommendations for Workplace Violence Prevention Programs in Late-Night Retail Establishments. The recommendations are based on OSHA's 1989 voluntary generic Safety and Health Program Management Guidelines.
