Databases & Software

NIOSH Power Tools Database
NIOSH has developed an informational database on commonly used power tools in occupational settings. The database is particularly helpful in determining the "real-world" noise level of power tools as they are used on the job. The database contains such information as sound power levels, sound pressure level and downloadable exposure files.

Certified Equipment List
NIOSH, under the authorization of the Federal Mine Safety and Health Act of 1977 and the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, provides a testing approval and certification program assuring commercial availability of safe personal protective devices and reliable industrial hazard measuring instruments. NIOSH develops improved performance regulations, tests and certifies (or approves) devices, and purchases approved and certified products on the open market to verify quality of manufacture.
