WUE Test Lab receives certification from NAIL

The WUE test lab recently achieved a milestone when the prestigious NAIL organization (Association of North American Independent Laboratories for Protective Equipment Testing) accredited the test lab for the testing of insulating gloves, sleeves, blankets, line hose, covers, hot sticks and live line tools, insulating plastic guards, insulated by-pass jumpers and portable grounding jumpers. WUE received the accreditation after successfully passing an in-depth audit by NAIL and demonstrating compliance to all ASTM testing standards and generally accepted written testing and inspection processes. The test lab had to be a fully functioning lab for two years before having the audit conducted. WUE is grateful to the many customers that are successfully using the lab for their monthly, quarterly or yearly testing requirements. The test lab also builds new grounds and jumpers as well as meter loop assemblies.
