LAPP’s test facility for cables is CSA certified under the CSA Supervised Manufacturer's Testing for Certification (SMTC) Program.

Although UL has a Canadian equivalent, cUL, the CSA mark is more broadly accepted by designers, contractors and machine builders in Canada and other international regions.

CSA certification verifies the cable manufacturer’s test equipment and test methods meet the same requirements as those at CSA facilities, demonstrating the company’s commitment to quality for the global market.

LAPP USA Engineering performs many of the same tests that CSA conducts in its lab. The company also has to meet the latest ISO 17025 standards, which relate to a company’s quality management systems, equipment calibration, staff competency, and documentation.  By harmonizing its testing with the CSA, LAPP is able to validate its products prior to CSA testing.  That's assurance that most cable manufacturers cannot offer.

CSA is Canada’s most recognized standards organization, and the CSA mark is broadly accepted by designers, contractors and machine builders.

LAPP’s CSA certification means you can be sure our products have been thoroughly tested to provide the highest quality and meet the rigors of their end-use applications and environments.

Having a workforce that’s well trained on current technologies and equipment is critical for any manufacturer. When workers lack necessary skill sets, they are more likely to make expensive mistakes that result in costly downtime. Without proper training, employees are also less productive and have lower job satisfaction. They often feel as though they aren’t moving forward in their career and get discouraged. In addition, the correlation between well-trained workers and a safer manufacturing environment shouldn’t be overlooked.

Clearly, the importance of industrial training must be a key consideration for employers. Unfortunately, developing a workforce with necessary knowledge isn’t always easy. A variety of factors are creating a serious skills gap, and many companies are struggling to find ways to address the challenges.

What drives the requirement for accurate, high-quality labels? With so much hanging in the balance for manufacturers and retailers competing on a global scale, there's no good reason to ignore the need for label quality. Mislabeled packaging could have consequences that range from wasted product to (potentially severe) consumer health issues.

Let's take a look at four major areas that illustrate the importance of ensuring the accuracy and legibility of product and packaging labels and discuss a solution that can help avoid errors.

Area 1: General product traceability

Product traceability, in a general sense, is essential for consumer safety, regulatory compliance and overall quality perception. If there’s a problem with a product, traceability allows the consumer, retailer or another entity to quickly locate and segregate defective products in the event of a recall.
