TNI Small Laboratory Advocacy Group Survey

Date Posted: 2-24-2014

The NELAC Institute (TNI) Small Laboratory Advocacy Group is conducting a survey of its members and other environmental laboratories to:
- Gain a better understanding of the demographics of our community
- Gain a better understanding of the resources used by laboratories
- Gain a better understanding of the challenges faced by laboratories of different sizes (does size matter?)

IMPORTANT: The survey includes questions related to number of samples analyzed per year and number of tests performed. It also asks for the minimum education requirements for laboratory positions. You may wish to gather that information prior to starting the survey. The survey is designed so that it may be completed in multiple sittings - i.e. you do not have to complete the survey all at one time. You can re-enter the survey at a later time to answer questions.

The survey is estimated to take 10 to 20 minutes to complete. You do not need to answer each question. Everyone who completes the survey and provides contact information will receive a copy of the tabulated responses.

If you prefer to complete a hardcopy of the survey, please e-mail me at [email protected].

Thank you for your participation in this important endeavor!
