EVERETT, Wash. – World Metrology Day commemorates the signing of the Meter Convention on May 20, 1875. Fluke Calibration, a leader in precision calibration instrumentation and software, joins the rest of the global metrology community to celebrate the importance of measurements.
The theme for World Metrology Day 2012 is "Metrology for Safety."
"Fluke Corporation, one of the world’s leading metrology companies, is dedicated to facilitating workers’ safety through test and measurement tools as well as education," said Fluke Chief Corporate Metrologist Jeff Gust. "Fluke Corporation manufactures a myriad of products associated with safety."
For example, Fluke has created an entire program dedicated to electrical measurement safety, complete with presentations, videos, checklists and application notes. The videos and application notes are offered free of charge to users of Fluke products and the presentations support both private industry training programs and educator curricula.
"The Fluke Product Evaluation group works with the Fluke Metrology team to ensure that all of the equipment associated with safety measurements is traceable through Fluke Primary Measurement Laboratories to National Measurement Institutes — which in turn are traceable to the International System of Units (SI), as determined by the Meter Convention,” Gust said. “This complex system of documentary standards, traceable measurements, laboratory testing, and engineering help to provide people around the world with products that supports their safety."
