World Metrology Day
May 13, 2012 by Maria Blesh
May 20th marks World Metrology Day for 2012. This year’s theme – We Measure Your Safety – is something everyone can relate to.
The work of metrologists is so entrenched in everything we do and everything we use.
- Our cars need properly working gauges to run
- Medications have to meet standards to be effective
- The GPS technology in our smart phones to get us anywhere
World Metrology Day is a great opportunity for the metrology community to be recognized for their contributions. It is celebrated in 80 countries and is organized by the International Bureau of Weights and Measures (BIPM) and the International Organization of Legal Metrology (OIML). You can read more about individual celebrations at the World Metrology Day website.
Blue Mountain remains an active member in the metrology community and we have two trained metrologists on our team. The entire Blue Mountain company would like to thank the calibration professionals for their efforts in the field. Please continue your hard work in making our world safer every day.
