April 22, 2016 – On April 5, 2016, Sean Austin, a Certified Health Physicist with more than 29 years of broad-based health physics experience, joined the Plexus-NSD Nuclear Solutions Division, and we are just thrilled! He has been providing radiation-related consulting and training services to a host of clients around the country, with particular emphasis in license applications, safety planning, program audits, regulatory interactions, radioactive and mixed waste management, and more, so we know he will fit in to our organization nicely. Sean is known nation-wide for the health physics and operational radiation safety training courses he has developed and delivered (some of our visitors may have seen him in action!), and he is a nationally-recognized expert in the application of Department of Transportation and U. S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission requirements for shipping radioactive materials. Prior to joining Plexus-NSD, Sean was a consultant with Dade Moeller & Associates, Chief of the Radioactive Materials Control Section at the National Institutes of Health, and a health physicist at the Pilgrim Nuclear Power Station. For those of you who know Sean, you can now find him at Plexus-NSD’s Columbia, Maryland office. Give him a call after he settles in a bit to see how things are going. Welcome, Sean!!!read more
December 17, 2015 – On this date IEM received notice that our operations were re-certified to the ISO 9001:2008 (without design) International Quality System Standard. Just a few weeks ago our entire quality system was audited and certified by Smithers Quality Assessments Inc. (SQA) an independent accredited registrar who found that our Nuclear Services Division our Consulting Division our Instrumentation Program and our Corporate Operations meet the requirements for ensuring compliance with customer regulatory and legal requirements. Their findings also concluded that IEM meets requirements for customer satisfaction by preventing nonconformity at all stages of our work starting with initial proposals and ending with final deliverables. Since we opened our doors in 1994 IEM’s mission has been to ensure customer satisfaction by providing technically-sound legally-defensible and cost effective consulting and services. While others in our field may claim similar goals our focus on our quality system the continuous improvements we make in our products and processes and our emphasis on constant innovation has indeed offered value to our customers. The receipt of our most recent Certification is further proof that IEM continues to meet its objectives. We are proud to continue saying “IEM’s operations are Certified to the ISO 9001:2008 Standard”. Soon to come is a merger of the IEM program with our new company, Plexus Scientific Corporation.read more
September 22, 2015 – Yesterday Mr. Ross Wagner a recent Bloomsburg University graduate with a Bachelor’s degree in Health Physics joined the Nuclear Solutions Division of Plexus Scientific Corporation d.b.a. Plexus-NSD in our Maryland office. In 2014 we were fortunate to have had Ross with us on an internship program. During his term he was a member of a field team tasked with performing a comprehensive radiological characterization of a tungsten products plant in Cleveland Ohio and his performance was outstanding. Ross’ energetic and enthusiastic contributions meant the project was completed ahead of schedule and resulted in his receipt of a “Timely Appreciation of Performance” award. We were thus pretty confident he would make an excellent addition to our staff when he graduated so here he is! We invite you to give Ross a call to see how things are going how he is liking life as a new Maryland resident and what it feels like to be a practicing health physicist. Welcome Ross!read more
