Our commitment to quality is not only a function of our Product Integrity Department but a commitment of every employee.
PenSafe is globally registered to the requirements specified under the ISO9001 Quality Management System. Our ISO system is audited by SGS Limited, CSAI and UL; all of which are independent third party associations/laboratories who are ISO 17025 accredited. These organizations also monitor our Quality and product performance on a regular basis.
We believe and take part in a program of continuous improvement with an environmental awareness.
Process Control Systems
PenSafe employs statistical process control systems to ensure that its components and systems are in conformance with the appropriate safety standards and all of our products are tested to ensure conformance to the appropriate National and International Standards including CE, ANSI, CSA, NFPA and ASTM.
Testing of product begins at the raw material stage and continues throughout production. We establish and monitor critical attributes to assure product conformance. Our products are tested in house utilizing static pull test machines and proof load machines.
A drop test tower, certified to meet the requirements set forth by the ANSI and CSA standards, is used to ensure our products perform dynamically as specified. Internal/customer requirements are verified using a variety of specific use equipment including machines for verifying dimensions and corrosion resistance. Each connector is individually tested and inspected – with all of our components bear markings to allow traceability.
