Further to our previous communication and in response to the recent shelter-in-place as mandated by the state of California, we want to inform you that SGS Forensic Laboratories provides an essential service as an industrial hygiene laboratory that serves the built environment.
Although some of our services have limited capacity and will be subcontracted to other laboratory locations, we have encouraged all employees who can work from home to do so. Our laboratories in Hayward, Los Angeles, and Las Vegas, Nevada, continue to be open and in operation. At this difficult time, you can count on us as you continue to provide critical work that is important to the state’s health and well-being.
We have also eliminated non-essential travel, limited visitors to our offices, altered delivery protocols to make sure there is no contact, and have moved as much of our operations to virtual formats.
To protect our valuable team members and their families, our business has scaled down our normal operations. At the laboratory, we have limited our essential operations to work with a lean force to avoid working in close-proximity and respect the recommended social distancing guidelines.
We have also arranged with our maintenance company to schedule more frequent cleaning protocols throughout our facility, but particularly in common areas.
We pledge to continue sharing updates, as necessary. If you have any questions do not hesitate to contact us at +1 800 827 3274.
When calling us you may get our voicemail, please leave a detailed message with your contact info. Our team is closely monitoring this inbox and will be in touch with you as soon as possible.
