Despite the currently difficult circumstances, the consilab team is upbeat, healthy, and always here for you.
The first two weeks of social distancing have left us in the best of health and our entire consilab team remains fully operational.
Of course, we too have taken some precautions to ensure that this remains the case.
The newly recommended hygiene rules are already routine for our laboratory, since we have been following such rules for years now. Although we apply these rules because of the many unknown substances that we measure, they are also effective against the transmission of viruses.
What is new for us is that we must maintain as much distance from each other as possible. We did indeed have to get used to that. To make it a bit easier for ourselves, we have divided up into shifts wherever possible. Half of our consultants are working from a home office. After a week, we swap out. We are temporarily conducting team meetings, discussions and sometimes HAZOPs as well via telephone and videoconferencing. We are of course always available for our customers by phone and e-mail and are also happy to answer your technical questions.
This way we can maintain social distancing, combine our know-how as always and still be there for our customers at all times.
We are doing everything we can to stay healthy and ready for work. Please do so yourself as well!
Your consilab team
Colorful experiments were conducted once again during Project Week at the Central Elementary School in Hungen. Kids in classes 1 through 4 determined pH levels, split colors into their components and saw many interesting experiments that produced plenty of sizzle. Dr. Maike Möller from Trais-Horloff offered the project for the second time in Hungen and was especially pleased by the intense interest shown by girls. The myth that the natural sciences are for boys is obviously not true in Hungen. Thanks to materials donated by consilab GmbH from Frankfurt/Main, the kids were able to conduct many experiments themselves. The Central Elementary School in Hungen and Dr. Möller want to continue pursuing their shared goal of getting even young children interested in the natural sciences early on.
The 15th Loss Prevention Symposium was held in the university town of Freiburg on 5 – 8 June 2016, returning to Germany after 39 years. About 500 international participants from process and plant safety attended the symposium in the Freiburg Concert Hall, where they discussed current issues in the area of explosion prevention and protection, risk assessment and and process safety. As at all of the recent symposia, experts from consilab GmbH were also present this year. The company not only had a presence here with an exhibition booth but also acted as a gold sponsor for the event. With a total of six lectures and a poster from research projects, consilab GmbH was also involved in sharing expertise and in the productive discussions at the three-day symposium.
Over the course of the year we considered ways to even better fulfill our motto: “we are where our customers need us to be.” We quickly came up with an idea and have spent the last few months developing, planning, organizing and establishing its implementation.
We are now proud to be able to announce the launch of our new Leverkusen location. Our new site is located in building Q18L in Chempark Leverkusen. This location makes it much easier for our customers from North Rhine-Westphalia to reach us, with the biggest advantage for companies within Chempark Leverkusen being that we can now simply pick up samples such as those for DSC readings. Three of our most experienced experts from various areas of plant safety – Dr. Jörg Horn, Sebastian Kimpel and Carlota Hernandez Gurí – are now available to you in Leverkusen. These experts are supported in the laboratory by Katharina Stegemann and Wolfgang Bauer, who have likewise gained relevant experience at the Frankfurt location.
We of course provide you with the same excellent service from our Leverkusen location that you are accustomed to receiving from our original location in Frankfurt. We are a team. It goes without saying, therefore, that we will always support you with the best expertise, regardless of the location.
Our experienced team in Leverkusen is always happy to answer any questions you might have by phone at +49 (0)214-2605-56458. You are also welcome to make an appointment with us by phone for a tour of our on-site laboratory.
