Are Your Rubber Goods in Compliance?
Regular inspection and testing intervals are designed to keep users safe. Rubber can become compromised through regular use, age, exposure to sharp objects, dirt, oils, petroleum-based products, environmental fluctuations, and improper storage. For these reasons, regular visual and electrical inspections are mandated by ASTM and OSHA.
*OSHA regulations require electrical testing of rubber insulating equipment prior to the first use and periodically thereafter. Initial tests are referred to as a proof-test or acceptance test. These testing standards reference federal OSHA regulations and ASTM standards. Please note: State OSHA regulations and/or company regulations may have even more stringent testing intervals.

Your first line of defense in preventing an accident.
Daily visual inspections are required by ASTM F1236-96, which outlines 24 types of irregularities to look for during inspections. Making regular visual inspections is crucial for safety and use of damaged goods puts the user in harm’s way. Some damage is not easily visible, requiring inflation or rolling to expose damage such as dry rot, pin-sized holes, nicks, cuts, etc.
