Seismic OSHPD Certs

ATS Seismic Laboratory

Since 1967, Applied Technical Services has been proud to act as an industry leader in seismic certification, testing and related services. We offer customized, thorough testing services for manufacturers with regards to components, equipment, machines and more, allowing our hospital and healthcare facilities clients to comply with the rigorous demands that come with OSHPD certification and related requirements.

Certification Description

OSHPD stands for the Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development. OSHPD certification is a process that evaluates the resistance of non-structural components to earthquake events. OSHPD regulates the seismic resistance of items critical to the operations of healthcare facilities in the State of California.

At Applied Technical Services, we proudly maintain compliance with all of the following standards and codes:

  • OPM (OSHPD Preapproval of Manufacturer's Certification)
  • OSP (OSHPD Special Seismic Certification Preapproval)
  • OSHPD (Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development)
  • SSC (Special Seismic Certification)
  • IBC (International Building Code) and More

One of the most important pieces of equipment ATS uses during seismic testing is called a triaxial seismic shaker. This gives our highly skilled and dedicated technicians the ability to not only test for structural integrity but also instrumentation functionality, component performance and process.
