Fall River, MA – Apollo Safety, Inc., a veteran-owned, Fall River-based company specializing in safety products and services, recently announced the formation of an Environmental Health & Safety Division to better serve university, manufacturer, oil and gas refineries, life sciences, biotech, and other large facility clients. The new division will feature extensive offerings as it pertains to gas detection equipment maintenance and monitoring and compliance.
“Environmental health and safety departments at large universities, refineries, manufacturers, etc. have become more commonplace in recent years, and that certainly is a step in the right direction when it comes to the safety of residents, staff, and visitors, ” said John V. Carvalho III, president of Apollo Safety, Inc. “Unfortunately, gas detection equipment maintenance and monitoring are areas where these facilities are a bit behind, and that’s where our new division can help.”
Apollo Safety’s offerings include a wide variety of portable and stationary gas detection systems suitable for large universities. The company also offers portable gas monitors for rental at weekly or monthly rates. Rental equipment is calibrated to NIST standards.
“Apollo Safety technicians are factory-trained to keep gas-monitoring equipment compliant with OSHA, state, and local regulations,” said Carvalho. “It is extremely important for facilities like this that house laboratories, dormitories, and other areas of potential risk to have a trained professional inspect and service monitoring devices.”
