Designing, Testing, and Certifying Personal Protective Equipment for an Automated World

Standards and certification services for personal protective equipment (PPE) have helped to prevent workplace injuries and deaths for years. As the last line of defense against hazards that cannot be controlled at the source or along the path to the worker, PPE provides an added level of protection. But is industrial automation beginning to reduce the need for PPE? Some market analysts believe that automation will lead to a decline in employment numbers or at least improve the safety of machines to reduce the need for PPE. Despite the proliferation of automation in the industrial sector, the PPE market actually continues to grow. Even in an automated world, manufacturers are tasked with providing high-quality, third-party certified PPE due to increasingly stringent regulations and workplace safety programs around the world.

In the white paper we explore:

  • Drivers of PPE market growth
  • Strategic considerations for PPE manufacturers
  • Major standards and regulations
  • The importance of third-party certification
