When investing in new equipment and solutions for your business, product safety is always a top consideration. In the United States, product safety requirements are designed and regulated by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). These strict guidelines assure consumers receive the highest level of sanitation, health and electrical requirements for their investment. As the designers of the top wine pouring and preservation solution in the marketplace today, Napa Technology created the WineStation® with OSHA compliance and safety standards in mind.
Napa Technology affords your business the greatest peace of mind, as our product line has achieved the highest level of Electrical, Fire, and Sanitation certification required by OSHA compliance inspectors throughout the United States. The WineStation® is OSHA compliant, certified by UL, tested to meet NSF/ANSI standards, and conforms with American Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements.
OSHA requires Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory (NRTL) listing for, among other things, all electrical equipment intended to be used in the workplace, regardless of locality. Read on for more information on these standards and how to ensure your products are in fact properly certified:
The legal requirements for product safety vary throughout the world, depending upon the jurisdiction and where the equipment will be deployed (factory, office, medical, etc.).
A manufacturer would benefit from having its product tested and listed by a third party test agency to the applicable industry consensus standard(s). A merchant of products would also benefit by marketing products that are listed by a third party test agency.
UL & NSF
Underwriters Laboratory (UL), also nationally recognized and required by OSHA, is a testing organization enforcing equipment and protection from electrical hazards. As a consumer, you should always look for the UL symbols in both technical specs and on the equipment itself. NSF International is nationally recognized by OSHA, tests and certifies products to meet public health, sanitation and safety standards.
To protect your investment Napa Technology recommends you or a team member personally verify the fact that your vendor(s) currently hold a UL Safety Certification and not simply NSF certification. NSF alone may not be enough for the Electrical and Fire inspectors in your area.
The WineStation conforms with the American Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements, which is critical to achieving proper operating certifications and inspection approvals.
