Being UL-certified is a big deal-it’s an independent product safety certification organization that was founded in 1894, and has been testing products and writing standards for safety ever since then. UL’s purpose is to promote safe living and working environments by the application of safety science and hazard-based safety engineering, support the production and use of products which are physically and environmentally safe and to apply their efforts to prevent or reduce loss of life and property, advance safety science through research and investigation, concentrate their efforts and resources on public safety in those areas where they can make valuable contributions, and work with integrity and a focus on quality to enhance the trust conveyed by the organization’s certification marks.
UL evaluates more than 19,000 types of products, components, materials and systems annually with 20 billion UL Marks appearing on 66,000 manufacturers’ products each year. UL’s worldwide family of companies and network of service providers includes 68 laboratory, testing and certification facilities serving customers in 102 countries. And the fact that LifeFone’s medical alert systems are UL certified means they’re high quality and reliable.
UL has developed more than 1,000 standards for safety, which are essential to helping ensure public safety and confidence, reduce costs, and improve quality and market products and services. The fact that LifeFone’s emergency medical alert systems are tested to UL’s rigorous safety standards means consumers can live in a safer environment than they would have otherwise, without an emergency medical alert system. With LifeFone’s medical alert necklaces being put through these rigorous safety standards, customers can rest assured each medical alert necklace lives up to the highest standards.
