Environmental and Safety Audits


Effective management of environmental, health and safety (EHS) requirements is necessary for maintaining productive, sustainable operations. A sound EHS compliance and management program provides a means to avert problems and delays, reduce liability, avoid costs and present a positive image to the community. To that end, assessments/ audits are effective tools for understanding, evaluating, and verifying EHS compliance, EHS management systems, EHS initiatives, as well as liabilities and risks.
