OH&S Tiger LT VOC Monitor

Newly launched Tiger LT VOC monitor wins award in USA

Just a few months after it was launched, we are thrilled to announce that our Tiger LT VOC monitor has been named New Product of the Year in the Industrial Hygiene category at Occupational Health & Safety (OH&S) magazine’s prestigious seventh annual awards.

This entry-level photoionisation detector (PID), which offers worldwide Intrinsic Safety (IS) certification for use in potentially explosive atmospheres, is a streamlined, low-cost version of our well proven Tiger instrument.

Winners will be recognised during the 2015 National Safety Congress & Expo (www.congress.nsc.org) taking place in Atlanta from 28 to 30 September. This year’s competition attracted entries in 22 award categories, with an independent panel of three highly qualified judges choosing the winners.

“We’re incredibly proud that the TigerLT has won OH&S magazine’s New Product of the Year award in the industrial hygiene category,” comments Ion Science MD, Duncan Johns. “This accolade further underpins our commitment to designing and manufacturing best of breed gas detection instrumentation. Thorough understanding of our customer and market needs is a top priority and we will continue to invest in technology, people and services to ensure further innovation.”

OH&S magazine’s editor, Jerry Laws said: “Now in its seventh year, our New Product of the Year contest continues to grow, with a record 65 entries this year. The high quality and breadth of the 2015 entries proves once again how innovative safety and health manufacturers are as they compete in this fast-growing global market. Informing our readers and online audience about the best new products available to solve their key safety and health challenges has always been part of our magazine’s mission, and this contest has become a unique and very popular extension of our outreach to the audience we serve.

“All of the most important PPE categories were hotly contested this year, especially the Fall Protection, Hand Protection, and Protective Apparel categories, and several other categories attracted multiple entries,” Jerry continues. “I congratulate all of this year’s entrants on their fine work and thank them for participating. We certainly hope they and many other manufacturers will enter our eighth annual contest next year, as well.”

Talking about TigerLT, Duncan says: Although the TigerLT has been streamlined to offer major cost benefits, it still offers an array of industry-beating features to ensure optimum performance. The key advantage over similar PID instruments is its market leading accuracy and run time due to is anti-contamination and humidity resistant design. Another attribute is its global Intrinsic Safety certification. Although the accreditation process can differ from country to country, the TigerLT can be used in explosive hazardous areas located anywhere in the world.”

Sherrard, MS, CSP, safety consultant II for the North Carolina Department of Public Safety (Raleigh, NC) and former technical editor of OH&S; Leo DeBobes, MA, CSP, assistant administrator for emergency management and regulatory compliance at Stony Brook University Medicine (Stony Brook, NY), as well as an OH&S advisory board member; and Chuck Paulausky, CHMM, principal consultant and president for CP Safety & Environmental LLC (Chandler, AZ).
