Apollo Safety Launches Environmental Health & Safety Division



Fall River, Mass. — Jan. 12, 2015 — Apollo Safety, Inc. a veteran-owned, Fall River, Mass.-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 science, 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 & 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, including name brands like Industrial Scientific, RAE Systems by Honeywell, RKI Instruments, and GMI. Apollo Safety also offers portable gas monitors for rental at weekly or monthly rates. Rental equipment is calibrated to NIST standards.

In addition, Apollo Safety also provides on-site installation and training and 24/7 service. Apollo Safety technicians are factory-trained. In addition, Apollo offers its own proprietary training program, with five levels of certification.

“Apollo Safety technicians are factory-trained to keep gas-monitoring equipment compliant with OSHA, state, and local regulations,” Carvalho said. “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.”

Apollo Safety provides service in a "state of the art" in-house service center, as well as offering on-site support with factory-trained technicians for both portable and stationary gas detection systems. Apollo uses only factory-original parts for repairs and repairs are made exactly to manufacturer’s requirements. Apollo guarantees a 48-hour turnaround time with pre-approval, though 86 percent of all repairs are completed in five days or less. Software upgrades are included with all repairs, if available from the manufacturer.
