Environmental, Health, and Safety Audits (EH&S)
Auditing is the key element to a high-quality EH&S management program. We have a full-time auditing group comprised of professionals with experience working with compliance programs in various manufacturing and utility companies. We have merged these specialists together into teams that use our proprietary and proven auditing approach and software.
Audit Program Development and Implementation
We have extensive experience in development of environmental health and safety programs to meet customer requirements (such as programs that will meet specific plant requirements), programs that comply with regulatory requirements (OSHA, MSHA, DOT, State requirements, etc.), and programs to meet specific client needs (tailored to craft, location, or unique business needs).
EH&S Management System Audit and Gap Analysis
We work with our clients to help them integrate the findings of our audits into their management system and identify and address gaps in the system. Typically we return to each facility at specified intervals to perform follow-up audits.
OSHA Safety Audits (Occupational)
Our teams commonly perform combined OSHA and environmental audits using teams with individual auditors who are proficient in the respective area. If only OSHA compliance consulting services are needed, we can also do OSHA-only audits.
Risk Management Plans & Process Safety Management System Audits
An effective process safety management program requires a systematic approach to evaluating the whole process. The various lines of defense that have been incorporated into the design and operation of the process to prevent or mitigate the release of hazardous chemicals need to be evaluated and strengthened to assure their effectiveness at each level. Process safety management is the proactive identification, evaluation and mitigation or prevention of chemical releases that could occur as a result of failures in process, procedures or equipment.
