CFCM Chemistry Industry Association of Canada 400

The Chemistry Industry Association of Canada (CIAC) has announced that it has been included in the Canadian HR Reporter's Best Places to Work 2021. The report recognizes companies as one of the best places to work for company culture, diversity, employee engagement, and employee programs based on CIAC's submission from employees.

"At CIAC, our people philosophy prioritizes the health and well-being of our team as whole people whose lives and performance are impacted by events outside the normal workplace and working hours. We aim to ensure everyone leaves their workday feeling at least as good, if not better than when they started their day," said Bob Masterson, President and CEO of CIAC. "The fact that were able to maintain this approach and that staff continued to feel engaged through a pandemic, work from home environment, is truly thanks to the remarkable people that make up our team."

To be considered, organizations had to complete an in-depth submission with questions looking at key factors such as: employee engagement, turnover rates, average tenure of staff, compensation and benefits, health and wellness programs, diversity initiatives, professional development, corporate culture, flexible work options, reward and recognition and green programs.

Companies were then sent a link to an online employee survey to be circulated internally within their organization. The survey asked employees to rate their company across a range of metrics on employee satisfaction. An employer needed to achieve an overall satisfaction rating of at least 80 per cent to be recognized as a Best Place to Work. This year, 37 employers made the list.

New Bacharach Sling Psychrometer


CFCM slingpsychrometer 400Paul N. Gardner USA, global distributors, producers, and designers of quality physical and inspection instruments for the paint, coatings, and related industries, has introduced a new offering: The compact, portable Sling Psychrometer.

As an easy way to measure relative humidity levels quickly, this uniquely compact Bacharach Sling Psychrometer accurately determines per cent relative humidity without the necessity of consulting complex tables. There is no need to wet the wick each time a reading is taken, and it contains a slide rule calculator which correlates wet and dry bulb thermometer indications for direct reading of relative humidity. When not in use, the thermometer case telescopes into the handle for protection.

The Sling Psychrometer consists of two thermometers that are turned by vigorously swinging the handle and exposing the thermometers to rapid air movement. These two thermometers are called dry bulb and wet bulb. The bulb of one thermometer is placed in direct contact with the room air to measure dry-bulb air temperature. The bulb of the other thermometer is covered with a silk or muslin sleeve that is kept moist to record the wet bulb temperature. Evaporation cools the wet bulb more than the dry bulb, and the humidity is obtained as a function of change in temperature. The atmospheric humidity is determined by calculations, steam tables, or using a psychrometric chart. Gardco.com
