Industrial Scientific Corp – Why Work For Us?

At Industrial Scientific people are dedicating their careers to eliminating death on the job by the year 2050.

Ambitious? Yes. 

Achievable? We believe so. We know in hindsight that every accident was preventable. Thus, we think they are all ultimately predictable. 

Providing great products and services is not enough. We are committed to arming our customers with data that give them control over all risks in their operations. This data, known as leading indicators, helps them to see problems before they happen. It gives customers the opportunity to make changes and save lives. We have pioneered this concept in gas detectors with iNet. Our sister company, Predictive Solutions, is doing the same with safety observations and inspections. 

When customers have data that includes safety equipment and human behavior, they are better equipped to eliminate death in their workplaces. We’re here to support them in this effort. We serve with humility, hunger and honesty. We strive to deliver the highest quality, best customer service … every transaction, every time. 

This is what you can expect from a company with such an ambitious Vision.

The Gas Detection PeopleOnly a few people in this world get excited about gas detectors
Most of them work for Industrial Scientific.

Gas detection is all that we do. It’s what we love to do.

But we understand that, for many people, buying and maintaining gas detectors are like buying and maintaining tires. No one likes to do it. That’s why we developed breakthrough systems for automated testing, calibration and data management. 

Maybe it’s our fascination with sensor span reserves and LEL correlation factors. Maybe it’s the way we analyze and simplify safety data in ways that no one else has ever imagined. Add to that, our joy of serving others and our desire to exceed customer expectations. Then you begin to see why no other company offers a service like iNet. 

Perhaps we are a little different. That’s fine with us; because saving lives is something everyone can get excited about.

Our Way

Humble, hungry and smart. 
Seek truth; speak truth. 
Serving others is our greatest joy. 

Our People

They are proud of what they do and proud of where they work. That allows them to focus on delivering highest quality, best customer service … every transaction, every time. 


Leadership development is one of the most critical factors to our growth. We believe that improved leadership increases the ability to lay out a compelling vision, motivate and inspire, make the tough calls, and treat people with empathy.

We believe in high performance and teamwork. We work cohesively with an intense focus on serving customers. We believe our gas detection products and services have to be the best – the very best. Because customers bet their lives on our work every day.

Employees First

We believe that good financial performance is the result of doing the right things for employees first, customers second and shareholders third.

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Industrial Scientific Corp (Pittsburgh, PA) in May 2012.


    A couple interviews with someone in HR, the manager and CFO. Basic interview questions, nothing out of the blue. Went thru a temp agency to get the job. They use them for most of their hiring.
