Group of Testing Laboratories



Testing Laboratories Group at the Institute has been accredited since15th November 1995 under the national conformity assessment system. Under the accreditation scope, the activity of the testing laboratories includes the following areas:


  • Testing products for certification purposes:
    • Testing personal protective equipment (hearing, respiratory system, head, hand and leg protectors, protective clothing, face and eye protectors, equipment preventing from falls from heights),
    • Testing collective protection equipment (non-contact protection equipment, two-hand steering devices, electrical device casings, air filters),
    • Testing machinery and manufacturing equipment (wood processing machines, portable chainsaws),


  • testing working environment parameters and factors related to safety and health of workers:
    • measuring vibroacoustic parameters, microclimate, lighting, infrared radiation, and electromagnetic fields at workplaces,
    • concentration of harmful chemical substances in air at workplaces,
    • physiological parameters of man in the working environment (energy expenditure, physical load and human capacity at work).

Full accreditation scope of Testing Laboratories (no. AP 038) is available here: AB 038
