For Immediate Release
September 21, 2019
Radiation Safety & Control Services, Inc. (RSCS), a firm that specializes in project and support services to users of nuclear and radioactive material, celebrated their 30th year in business with a Corporate Open House at their new facility in Seabrook NH. This event included a formal Ribbon Cutting Ceremony with the Seabrook Town Manager William Manzi and Seabrook Selectmen Aboul Khan, and Selectwomen Theresa Kyle and Ella Brown. These local officials welcomed RSCS to their business community and shared in the celebration of this milestone anniversary.
RSCS was founded in 1989 by Eric Darois, Frederick Straccia, and James Tarzia. These colleagues had met as students at UMass Lowell’s Radiological Sciences Program and worked together as Health Physicists at Seabrook Nuclear Power station. They began their endeavor by offering radon testing and mitigation services, and quickly grew the business by acquiring an instrument calibration business, and hosting Radiation Safety Officer courses throughout the USA. Before long, their expertise in health physics was called upon by radioactive materials licensees whom needed consulting services, including the 3 Yankee Power Companies that were undergoing decommissioning of their Connecticut Yankee, Maine Yankee and Yankee Rowe nuclear plants. To meet the demand for these services, the Executive Directors expanded their team of health physicists and radiological engineers, and from there the trajectory of RSCS began to rise as the company continued to land contracts for consulting and radiological project management work.
Thirty years since inception, the company now has a staff of over 200 professionals who have established themselves as experts in nuclear decommissioning, environmental monitoring, complex modeling, and regulatory compliance. RSCS has supported most operating nuclear plants with consulting services and has managed radiological controls at plants that have been decommissioned or are undergoing decommissioning currently. RSCS has also diversified its services to include staff augmentation, providing seconded work forces for nuclear power outages, and has expanded to include an engineering project management group to support complex remediation efforts. Their staff of health physicists and radiological technicians also serve medical, industrial and military licensees. The company continues to service radiation detection instrumentation in their calibration laboratory, and they have also branched into manufacturing, providing realistic radiation detection simulation instruments in their SIM-Teq product line that has benefited hundreds of client’s training programs on the proper use of instrumentation.
As RSCS embarks on their fourth decade in business, they look forward to continuing to grow their team to meet the emerging needs for professionals and nuclear technicians at operating nuclear power plants and decommissioning sites. They also plan to continue expansion of their manufactured products division, which directly supports local NH businesses whom provide the company with parts fabrication and sub-assembly services. RSCS is proud to be a NH employer, and thanks Seabrook for their warm welcome to this business community.
