Galson Laboratories Wins 3-Year Contract with the State of Ohio
Syracuse, N.Y. - Galson Laboratories, a world leader in industrial hygiene analysis and monitoring solutions, was recently awarded a three-year contract to perform industrial hygiene laboratory services for the Ohio Bureau of Worker's Compensation, Division of Safety and Hygiene (BWC). The Ohio BWC also has the option to extend this contract for two successive one-year terms.
The Ohio BWC provides industrial hygiene consulting services to Ohio's employers as part of its risk management program. Galson Laboratories will assist the BWC's 30 industrial hygienists in the selection of monitoring methods and will supply them with collection media. Galson will then conduct laboratory analysis and provide the data to help them protect Ohio's workers. Galson will also supply industrial hygiene direct reading instruments to monitor Ohio workplaces for occupational hazards.
The Ohio BWC requirements relating to accreditation, sample turnaround time, staffing levels, experience, instrumentation and overall capacity, among others, were rigorous, according to Joe Unangst, Galson president and CEO. "This award was weighted heavily on the bidder's technical qualifications and not driven strictly by price. We're pleased to have been selected to assist the state of Ohio on this important work," he said.
Galson Laboratories is headquartered in East Syracuse, NY with offices in Charleston, SC, Alameda, CA and Clear Lake Shores, TX. For more information call toll-free, (888) 432-5227, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.galsonlabs.com .
