STANDARDS ORGANISATIONS

Knowing the importance of certain processes and taking steps to identify the best practices are vital. Our listed standards provide valuable guidance resources for OHS professionals to apply in their roles to protect workers. Our Issuer Organisations publish the world's most authoritative standards for testing materials against a wide range of exposures. They are responsible for maintaining uniformity of standards in all areas across the globe.

  • American Society for Testing Materials (ASTM).
  • National Fire Prevention Authority (NFPA).
  • American National Standards Institute (ANSI).
  • Canadian General Standards Board (CGSB).
  • International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO).
  • European Standards (EN).

WHAT WE DO

We engage in a step by step consultative process with end users whereby we:

  • Confirm the exactness of the hazard and risk, determine the appropriate FR/AR match and finalise design and/or modifications.
  • Provide Inspection Only garments (on request) and allow procurement of wear test items. 
  • Initiate official quotation > ordering > procurement.
