RSCS Providing Essential Services During the COVID-19 Outbreak
Posted on May 4th, 2020

Over the past several weeks, RSCS has been providing essential services to our customers at medical facilities, nuclear power plants and government agencies.  We are proud to be able to continue to support the nation’s critical infrastructure during this time of unparalleled disruption. 

Anticipating the implications of the COVID-19 outbreak earlier in the year, RSCS revised our Business Continuity Plans to address the unique risks that this novel virus posed to the safety of our employees and customers and to ensure we could provide essential services without interruption.  As most of the States in the country enacted suspension of non-essential services, we were prepared with plans to protect our workforce to ensure the consistent delivery of services to our clients.  As this situation has progressed, we have adopted the evolving guidance in our workplaces to prevent the spread of COVID-19.  These plans and protocols have kept our workers healthy, and have allowed us to supply our services to the medical, energy and government sectors on time and with the same level of quality that our customers have come to expect from RSCS.

Patients requiring nuclear medicine procedures cannot wait for the COVID-19 outbreak to subside.  Hospitals providing these services depend upon us for instrument calibration and repair services to ensure that their equipment used to survey hospital facilities are in tolerance.  As more workers are telecommuting, and children have substituted remote learning for classroom education, the need for electrical power to support these operations is critical.  Our project management services at operating nuclear plants have been delivered without interruption to ensure that the power grid is stable.  Hazardous conditions at various nuclear sites and at government cleanup sites cannot be left unattended while we await the return to the new normal.  These sites require that the efforts to safely remediate them stay on track.  First responders and government agencies rely on us to maintain various instruments in the highest level of readiness for them to use. Our dedicated workers have stayed on the job, using best practices to stay healthy while performing this important work.

As the COVID-19 outbreak is contained and mitigated, we will continue to do our part to provide essential services at sites throughout the country and at our headquarters and laboratory in NH.  We look forward to the day when our country is back open, but until then, we will do our part to help support our critical infrastructure.
