Clym Secures Comprehensive Safety Services Contract for Renowned Client

NIH building in Maryland
Clym Environmental Services, LLC (Clym) was recently awarded a federal contract valued at over $14 million dollars to provide comprehensive safety support and decommissioning services for the National Institutes of Health after a competitive bidding process.

Considered the world’s foremost research center, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has paved the way for discoveries that advance our understanding of diseases, improve health and save lives. In support of this important mission, NIH solicits highly qualified service providers to meet its detailed laboratory and facilities safety requirements. Under this contract for comprehensive safety support services, Clym’s on site team will be tasked with management and implementation of laboratory surveys and assessments, critical care area support, instrument calibration and maintenance, analytical lab support and complex facility decommissioning services for NIH’s main campus and satellite facilities. Clym is proud to have served as the selected contractor for this important work for more than ten consecutive years.

“The NIH has been an important client and partner of ours for many years,” said Clym’s president Charles Watts, “we are humbled that they continue to look to our team for support and motivated to once again validate their choice.” In addition to this contract, Clym has been working for the NIH on other projects including comprehensive radioactive, hazardous and mixed waste management for more than fifteen years. “We never take this process or this opportunity for granted,” he said, “we know we have to earn this work with consistent reliability, competency and excellence. I know our team will, as they have in the past, rise to the occasion.

Important life sciences research often demands the use of hazardous materials, such as chemicals and biologics. The scientists conducting this work understand the intent of those materials and Clym can assure that the necessary safety controls for both on-going and concluded research are in place. “In short,” Watts continues, “we help to protect those conducting potentially lifesaving research as well as those who may utilize these labs after they are repurposed.”
