You're being pressured to reduce head count, cut expenses and still meet both compliance and production goals. But there's those air and water permits that need to be renewed, new regs no one's read yet, and the OSHA 200 report and Form R coming up. You have a quick question on interpretation or application of a regulation, but there's no one to ask and the government hotline gave you a different answer every time you called? A regulation changed, and your company was fined because you didn't have time to read the Federal Register last month? Sound familiar? Have you thought of outsourcing the functions? You can meet your goals and save money by outsourcing to EHSO.

ISO 14000 EMS
A properly designed and implemented environmental management system (EMS) will:
Similar to the Quality Management System (QMS) implemented for ISO 9001, the ISO14001 standard is a management system in accordance with defined internationally recognized standards. The 14000 standard has already been adopted by many leading global companies, such as IBM, HP, Intel, and AMP. For companies with a sound environmental system already in place, it offers an independent certification to demonstrate the credibility of the company. For firms without a system in place, it provides a common-sense means to reduce costs, meet environmental requirements, and achieve a strategic marketing advantage. For more information, click here.
Permits are required for many types of activities, not just large industrial smokestacks! In general, some form of permit application and approval is required any time the activity will result in any emission to the air, water or ground. Changes to existing activities usually require permit modifications. Even activities that do not have "point source discharges" (release to the environment through a pipe or duct) such as painting in a room or outdoors, or using epoxies outside - probably requires a permit. An improperly written permit application can cost your company plenty and impose unachievable conditions. Click here for more information about how EHSO can help your firm.
Plans & Reports
Is your staff spending too much time researching how to prepare, file and develop plans and reports, such as the new RMP's (Risk Management Plans (due June 1999)? Technical regulatory submissions, such as required reports like the Form R and various mandatory plans and programs (like the SPCC and safety programs) can be a drain on your resources. EHSO is skilled in producing quality technical submissions at an affordable price. Click here for more information and some of the typical submissions we prepare.
