Thanksgiving Holiday Schedule

The Environment, Health and Safety offices of SGS will be closed on Thursday, November 28 and Friday, November 29 in celebration of the Thanksgiving holiday. We will be accepting samples until noon on Wednesday, November 27 and will resume normal business hours on Saturday, November 30 at our labs, and normal business hours on Monday, December 2, for our service center sites. To accommodate holding times around the holiday, we ask that you keep the following in mind:

  • BODs collected on Thursday, November 21 and on Friday, November 22 should be received at the lab by noon on Friday, November 22. BOD samples collected on Tuesday 11/26 or Wednesday, November 27 need to be received at the lab no later than noon on Wednesday, November 27 (These times are to address the 48-hour holding time and 5-day incubation period).
  • Most microbiological samples should not be sampled or submitted on Wednesday, November 27. In addition, samples for total plate count should not be sampled or submitted on Tuesday, November 26.
  • Tedlar Bag samples for TO-3 analysis should not be collected on Wednesday, November 27. Samples collected before November 27 should be submitted to the lab before 10 AM on Wednesday, November 27.

Please coordinate all projects accordingly and contact your client services representative if you have any special needs or concerns. We wish you and your families a safe and happy holiday.
