Environmental, Health and Safety Regulatory Compliance

Environmental, Health and Safety Regulatory Compliance 

 

ET has developed a process for reviewing commercial and industrial facilities to manage their regulatory compliance issues.  The procedure involves an in-depth evaluation of current permits and compliance requirements and though review of their compliance management program.  ET also provides compliance audits that allow facilities to check their working compliance program.  These audits provide recommendations on how to improve current compliance practices and how to implement new programs that may be necessary. 

Spill Prevention, Control and Countermeasures (SPCC) Compliance

 

Aboveground Storage Tank regulations are currently being enforced by the EPA that require most AST owners with an excess of 1,320 gallons of combined oil storage to have a Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasures (SPCC) plan.  This plan examines the AST system piping, secondary containment, loading and unloading areas, facility drainage, surface water receptors, spill history, site security and training.  After the site-specific SPCC plan is developed, a registered professional engineer is required to certify the plan.  ET has the experience to tailor your SPCC plan to efficiently bring your AST/UST system to compliance.

Facility Response Plan (FRP) and Emergency Response Spill Planning

A Facility Response Plan and Emergency Response Spill Plan (Spill Plans) is required by the Oil Pollution Act of 1990.  United States Coast Guard (USGS) administered these regulations when there are fuel transfers from shore to vessels.  The Spill Plans must be specific to the Company’s operation, include how to transfer fuel over water and a contingency plan in the event a release should occur during fuel transferring activities.

Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) / National Pollution Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Permits

 

A SWPPP is designed to reduce contaminants from entering storm water and to eliminate their discharge off-site or into surface waters.  The SWPPP consists of evaluating potential source of contamination, site discharges to storm water systems, establishing Best Management Procedures (BMPs) to reduce adverse impacts to storm water, eliminating improper connections to storm water systems, reducing run-on from off-site areas and minimizing the amount of pollutants in storm water.

 

A SWPPP consists of planning and organizing a pollution prevention team, conducting a site assessment to determine if storm water pollution sources are present and/or discharging off-site, identifying BMPs to reduce storm water pollution and discharge, implementing BMPs and SWPPP evaluation.  We also work with your staff and provide training to minimize or eliminate storm water pollution and off-site discharge.

OSHA's visibility has increased in recent years.  This increased visibility has brought forth more regulations, an increased number of citations and an increased dollar amount per citation.  

 

Environmental Troubleshooters, Inc. offers a comprehensive OSHA compliance service to reduce injuries, illnesses and citations.  Our OSHA service starts with interviewing the employer, conducting a facility walk-through and inspecting records to determine if compliance deficiencies exist.  The identified compliance deficiencies are then ranked and a workplan for compliance is developed.  The client can then choose the best compliance option for their business.

 

Once a compliance option is selected, ET will implement and maintain the OSHA programs you have chosen on a routine basis.  Our OSHA service provides all the necessary written plans, inventory forms and training record forms.  Some of the compliance programs we offer include Employee Right-To-Know, Compressed Gas, Lockout/Tagout, Hearing Conservation, Confined Spaces, Chemical Hygiene, AWAIR, Personal Protective Equipment, Respiratory Protection, Emergency Planning, Ergonomics, Bloodborne Pathogens, Forklift Safety, Crane Safety, Machine Operator Safety, Driver Safety and an OSHA Compliance Checklist.
