FALL RIVER, Mass. — Apollo Safety Inc., a company specializing in safety products and services, has announced the formation of a special division to serve wastewater treatment facility clients, according to a press release.

The new division will offer gas detection equipment, maintenance and monitoring for wastewater treatment facilities, the release reported.

“By their very nature, wastewater treatment plants require special precautions. For starters, we are talking about a confined space that has daily exposure to chlorine gas as part of the drinking water treatment and hydrogen sulfide on the waste treatment side. With our special division, we can offer a greater level of service for wastewater treatment facilities so they can proactively address the risks they face on a daily basis,” said John V. Carvalho III, president of Apollo Safety Inc.

According to the release, the new offerings are paired with Apollo's usual on-site installation and training and 24/7 service.

“The advanced training our technicians receive provides an added level of safety and security for our clients,” said Carvalho. “Because of the training our techs receive, they can spot potential problems much sooner than techs without that training. That extra level of training can mean averting a major problem before it has the potential to become a tragedy. Or diagnosing a minor problem as part of a regular maintenance check that undetected could end up being a $4,000-5,000 repair.”
