Macron Safety's Testing Lab VOLTGARD is the off-site lab for numerous Utilities, Telecommunication Companies, Contractors, Municipalities, & Industrial facilities nationwide. OSHA workplace rules make the use of rubber insulating equipment mandatory, even when the smallest potential of contact with low or high voltage exists. These rubber goods must be periodically tested to ensure the products maintain their integrity when exposed to a full range of voltages. We offer full service testing and re-certification of Rubber Gloves, Sleeves, Rubber Blankets, Line Hose, Hot Sticks, & Jumper Cables. Our facility is equipped with state-of--the-art equipment for the complete testing of these products, including washing, visual inspecting, and electrical testing. All rubber protective equipment tested by Macron Safety's VOLTGARD testing lab undergoes this rigorous sequence to ensure that your employees are always using safe equipment. If a product does fail during testing, a new certified replacement is readily available from our inventory.

Any doubts that your company is compliant? Your employees safe?
The 2015 Edition of the NFPA 70E recommendations are in print and take effect January 1, 2015.
Do you and your employees know all of the changes? Have they been implemented into your Electrical Safety Program? Do you have an Electrical Safety Program? Have you had Electrical Safety Training in the last year?
If the answer to any of those questions is no, then contact Macron Safety today!
Call 916-905-6535 or contact us to be certain you are in compliance.
Determine the Correct Protection Level, To evaluate Fire Retardant clothing materials in order to measure the heat transferred through the fabric, two values are calculated: Arc Thermal Performance Value (ATPV)...the minimum energy causing the predicted onset of second-degree burns and Heat Attenuation Factor (HAF)...the percentage of total energy of the arc that the fabric prevents from passing through, OSHA requires that each employer must assess the potential hazards in the work environment and determine the appropriate clothing materials using ASTM PS57-97. Always do a hazard assessment. You will need to know electrical system voltage, fault current available, number of phases, Arc time duration, estimated Arc gap, minimum distance from the Arc, and Arc configuration.
