“Infants at Work” Program off to a Great Start

ARA is excited to be offering an exciting new benefit to our employees. Our “Infants at Work” program allows new Moms and Dads the chance to bring their babies in to work with them. This increases bonding time, saves on expensive daycare costs, and gives employees the  option of coming back to work sooner that they might have otherwise. It’s a win—win!


The idea came about after the owners of ARA heard about other businesses having success with this concept. Before moving forward, the Management Team conduced research, held meetings, solicited input and had a few healthy debates. In the end, it was decided that if we were able to implement this type of program at ARA, it would be a tremendous benefit to the families as well as the company.


Our first baby in the program is Camden Lowe, son of  longtime ARA employee Jennifer Lowe. Camden has been a perfect addition to the office setting, and we are thrilled to have Jen back contributing to the team. Since we added the benefit, Jen has been able to work more hours and still spend time caring for Camden. To many working Moms, that’s a dream come true!

ARA  Offers Water Test Kits at Local Town Halls

To make it easier for local residents to get their water tested, a handful of local town halls are now offering our Well Water Testing Kits. If you live in Southern NH, be sure to ask your Town Clerk whether they are offering ARA water testing kits. If not, and you would like testing kits to be offered at your Town Hall just have your Town Manager call or email us any time. (Note the kits are free, the testing is not) 


Lead Inspection and Testing Services

The regulations surrounding lead are strict, and for good reason. Once it starts to deteriorate, lead based paint can easily enter the body without our knowledge through inhalation and ingestion. The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization state that a blood lead level of 10 μg/dL or above is a cause for concern; however there is no known ‘safe’ exposure level.


Lead exposure has been linked to many serious health issues ranging from ADHD and autism to stunted growth, kidney and nervous system damage. Since young children are particularly vulnerable, lead testing is highly recommended for homes and facilities that occupy children and/or pregnant women.


According to this EPA graph, any building constructed before 1978 is very likely to contain lead based paint:
