EnviroStat Field Sampling and Laboratory Subsampling Audits
Samples need to be representative. How do you know…
- That the samples you are relying on for decision-making are representative?
- That your existing protocols are optimized to collect representative samples at the lowest cost possible?
- If your personnel or contractors are collecting representative samples in accordance with your company procedures and generally accepted practices?
- If your laboratory is properly processing and subsampling your samples?
- If your data are defensible?
- That your decisions are correct?
- If you are minimizing your sampling costs?
- That your data are reproducible?
The only way to know for sure is a Representative Sample Audit by EnviroStat, Inc.
Since field sampling and laboratory subsampling are the two largest sources of error for decision-making, it is critical that they be performed correctly. As part of an independent audit, EnviroStat will observe your existing sampling or subsampling operations and provide you with a report of observations and any deficiencies along with recommendations for improvement. Our audits are confidential and customized to your specific issues. They are not a checklist that is the same for every client. With cutbacks and outsourcing that today’s organizations are experiencing, you need to be sure your data integrity is not compromised.
