Most people assume the products they use every day are safe. But how does anyone really know for sure? Does someone actually check products before they're sold?
UL does! UL helps to make sure the products people buy operate safely and are safe to use. UL smashes, burns, explodes, drops -- basically trashes the products people use every day!
Sound interesting? You can help make the world a safer place ...

Safety Smart Website
Designed from a child's point of view, this e-community site allows children to play interactive games, get the latest in educational safety news, and post their own videos and photos. As part of UL's Safety Smart Club, they can become Safety Wizards by pledging to help protect their friends and family by teaching them how to be safe. Do your part and log on to Safety Smart!
Safety in the community
As UL Safety Ambassadors, UL employees are a key resource for information in safety issues among students, educators, parents and other consumers. UL Safety Ambassadors bring the message of safer product use to the communities where they work, live and play. Whether it be through a school demonstration or a discussion at a community meeting, UL Safety Ambassadors work hard to create the safer world that was the vision of UL's founder.
