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.
