ALS is a leader in providing analytical testing services to the environmental industry and has a broad scope of experience in providing analytical testing services to environmental emergency incidents such as plant explosions, ammonia and chemical fires, petroleum spills, train derailments, and accidental emissions or releases. These services are provided to consultants, government and industry in their efforts to make timely decisions in protection of the environment, mitigation of risk and maintaining business continuity.
ALS provides invaluable support for logistics and expedited testing services which can fall under the incident command structure during the initial stages of an environmental emergency. It is critical for stakeholders to be able to draw upon the technical expertise and support of the environmental laboratory to access not only sampling containers for the collection of water, soil, air and biota that may be potentially impacted, but to ensure that the analytical characterization results are processed on an urgent basis.
The initial data provided from environmental samples collected within the first 48 hours can provide critical insight into hazard identification, scope and environmental contamination zones, and indicators of efficacy of initial containment procedures. Ongoing expedited rush analysis services ensure timely cleanup of the site. Additional services such as mobile laboratory testing, specialty forensic analysis, and field screening tools are also available.
