CTEH benefits from employees who are proactive in developing our business. Derek Kliethermes, senior IH/ER consultant, has helped CTEH maintain its cutting edge.

Derek was the recipient of 2019’s Glenn Millner Innovative Service Award. This award recognizes those employees instrumental in developing and applying better solutions, helping us meet new requirements, discover new needs, and find new markets. Derek innovated during CTEH’s largest response of 2019, collaborating multiple platforms with the Drager X-PIDs to allow our team to deploy portable GC units in multiple locations (i.e. operator equipment cabs) for real-time BTEX analysis in remote worker exposure monitoring: an industry first. Derek’s innovation helped deliver a strong data set.

An innovation like this strengthens both our relationship with an important vendor as well as our reputation in the field of air monitoring. We’re looking forward to more innovations from Derek in the future!
