I discovered an iron being used in my manufacturing plant. It was a standard iron you buy at any department store. On the handle it said " For home use only", we there fore had the iron removed. Now I am being asked to verify that the devices in the plant are listed for use in the plant. From pencil sharpeners on the desk to battery operated drills. This is taking an incredible amount of time and effort, and even if I do find a device on "UL" the description does not say it suitable for indutrial use or anything similar. Could someone please tell me how to verify common items are suitable to be in an industrial setting?
