LANDAUER’S Commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility
LANDAUER is expanding our commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility. To protect our client’s privacy and enhanced data security, effective April 1, 2018, LANDAUER has transitioned the delivery of all dosimetry reports electronically via the secured myLDR portal. In May 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has come into effect throughout the European Union and replaced the UK’s Data Protection Act. Privacy of personnel data is key to the GDPR. Transitioning to electronic report delivery via the secured myLDR platform will enable LANDAUER to further minimize the exposure of confidential and sensitive data that could result in legal and financial risks. LANDAUER is discontinuing the practice of delivering dosimetry reports via email, Royal Mail and all Courier services such as DHL, FedEx, etc.
Furthermore, we are committed to being an environmentally-friendly company. Going paperless will result in saving nearly two acres of trees each year. Our green efforts coupled with the focus on privacy and data security, demonstrates how serious LANDAUER is to address social and environmental issues that impact our clients and the communities where we live and work.
