Thousands of subscribers voted online in ISHN's 2016 Readers' Choice Awards. As a category winner, Casella CEL will receive recognition in ISHN media and a commemorative award.

"The ISHN Reader's Choice Award win underscores the positive impact that Casella products have on the more than 50,000 environmental health and safety professionals who read the magazine monthly. It also indicates the dBadge2's advantages over competing hearing protection solutions, such as Boothtooth 4.0 and our Airwave mobile app that make the dBadge2 a must-have safety tool for any environment subject to dangerous levels of noise," said Rob Brauch, Business Unit Manager of Casella CEL Inc. "It is a truly exciting time and we thank the readers of ISHN for their support and confidence in Casella's full line of dBadge2 dosimeters, both for hazardous and non-hazardous locations."
