Currently, the environmental tests are primarily shock & vibration, temperature and EMC compliance, but may include humidity, altitude (high and low pressure) and other tests. Some of the testing will require travel to other locations off site and possibly overnight stays. Some flexibility in working hours is also required, with occasional early starts, late finishes and some weekend working being necessary to fit around test equipment availability.
