Environmental Health & Safety (EHS) Compliance
Environmental Studies & Permitting
Natural & Cultural Resources
To help you protect your employees, customers and communities with sound environmental health and safety (EHS) compliance programs, you need an experienced, transparent partner. Our regulatory specialists help you develop a comprehensive and sustainable compliance program to address the ever-changing regulatory landscape.
From manufacturing plants to refineries, we build on decades of nationwide experience establishing EHS compliance programs to address local, state and federal regulations. Our experience conducting multimedia compliance audits — air, waste and water — for the transportation, aviation, manufacturing, industrial, chemical, oil and gas, and utility industries give us a broad and comprehensive perspective.
In addition to auditing, we can prepare National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit applications and help your facilities comply with their permits. We have experience with spill prevention, control and countermeasure (SPCC) plans, stormwater pollution prevention plans (SWPPPs) and other key programs.
Environmental responsibility is a baseline expectation of consumers and investors. We help you monitor and reduce the impact of your operations and products on the environment — allowing you to reduce your environmental footprint — and we develop systems, processes and training to help you document and maintain programs that both make a difference and meet regulatory requirements. Our teams plan carefully to help you deliver the results and the sustainability reports to fulfill the market’s needs.
Our team is experienced in addressing the challenges facing facilities with lead and asbestos-containing materials. We understand both the impact on operations and the regulations that govern every instance. We help you fulfill requirements and create plans and systems to make your facility both compliant and safe. We also know there is more to industrial hygiene than those elements. We can provide noise testing and chemical exposure monitoring for workers at your facilities.
Hazardous chemicals are vital to many modern industries, so maintaining safety and preparing for accidents is critical. The handling of these substances is governed by the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). OSHA’s PSM standards govern facility safeguards for employees and on-site mitigation measures. EPA’s RMP program requires facilities to develop plans for managing accidental releases that may impact offsite receptors.
Our professionals help you manage compliance with both sets of rules, whether you’re starting from scratch or adjusting your programs based on changing operations. We help your operations achieve and maintain your compliance based on any changes to your chemical use, personnel training needs, inspection requirements, documentation updates or regulatory changes.
Environmental issues can be a part of your real estate transactions, whether you’re buying or selling — and they always will be. You need a partner to help you understand your potential environmental liabilities.
Our professionals know the rules, understand the stakes and are experienced advocates. From initial environmental site assessments to detailed Phase II investigations — involving collection of surface and subsurface soil, surface water, groundwater, and sediment samples — our team uncovers the information you need to make knowledgeable and defensible decisions.
