Apollo Safety Inc., a veteran-owned, Fall River, Mass.-based company specializing in safety products and services, recently announced the formation of a mining division to better the mining industry and other entities that work underground. The new division will feature extensive offerings for mines and underground work as it pertains to gas detection equipment, maintenance and monitoring.

“When you work underground, you go to work knowing there’s a possibility you might not resurface. That’s why it’s critical that these facilities have reliable gas detection monitors placed throughout the underground site,” says John V. Carvalho III, president of Apollo Safety Inc. “Our new mining division will help these mines and other underground facilities select the appropriate system for their needs and make recommendations for a suitable maintenance schedule.”

Apollo Safety’s offerings include a wide variety of portable and stationary gas detection systems suitable for large universities, including name brands like Industrial Scientific, RAE Systems by Honeywell, RKI Instruments, and GMI. Apollo Safety also offers portable gas monitors for rental at weekly or monthly rates. Rental equipment is certified to NIST standards.

In addition, Apollo Safety also provides on-site installation and training and 24/7 service. Apollo Safety technicians are factory trained. In addition, Apollo offers its own proprietary training program with five levels of certification.

“Having gas detection systems in place can only save lives if you know they are working properly. That’s what makes having a maintenance program critical,” says Carvalho. “With our new division, we provide maintenance and monitoring services to actually test gas detection systems so the facility knows that it’s working properly rather than just assuming all is well.”

Apollo Safety provides service in a "state of the art" in-house service center, as well as offering on-site support with factory-trained technicians for both portable and stationary gas detection systems. Apollo uses only factory-original parts for repairs and repairs are made exactly to manufacturer’s requirements. Apollo guarantees a 10-day turnaround time with preapproval, though 86 percent of all repairs are completed in five days or less. Free software upgrades included with all repairs.
