OSHA does not "certify" or "approve" any devices or equipment. Companies that purport to have "OSHA Certified" or "OSHA Approved" items probably mean that they believe their products will meet OSHA's rules. However, there is no guarantee that such products will be applicable for specific situations. It is the employer's responsibility to choose devices that are applicable to both the rules and to their unique workplace.
