Christmas and New Years trading hours for 2017-18

On behalf of the ALS environmental teams in Australia, we would like to wish you and your family a safe and happy Festive Season. We thank you for your support this year and look forward to working with you in 2018.

MANAGING PROJECTS OVER THE CHRISTMAS/NEW YEAR PERIOD:

The ALS environmental laboratories in Townsville, Brisbane, Sydney, Mudgee, Melbourne, Newcastle, and Perth will be open during the Christmas/New Year period except for the mandated public holidays and weekends.  There are some variations to hours, sample and reporting times, and regional laboratories you will need to be aware of (please see the locations below for further details).

ALS would like to gain a better understanding of any projects that may need particular attention over the Christmas and New Year period. This will help to ensure the laboratory and client services operations are adequately resourced to assist you in achieving desired outcomes.

If you need to submit samples outside of these hours please contact us for alternate arrangements. If you are planning site works or submitting samples in the period leading up to Christmas or in the Christmas/New Year period please contact your Client Manager or local Environmental Service Representative to discuss your project timelines and required service delivery.

Note: Special consideration should be given to analytical holding times, particularly water samples for semi-volatile analysis. Also, extra care should be taken to ensure that all COCs are clear and accurate and do not require clarification, especially if samples are submitted just before you go on holidays.

Submitting samples in January can offer added benefits:

  • Rapid turnaround time available
  • Results completed whilst you are on leave
  • Key projects can be performed in January, due to certain sites having improved access during partial operational closures
