Our client has operations in over 30 states where local, state and federal requirements apply to its manufacturing operations. It is our client’s policy to maintain full compliance with all applicable environmental laws and regulations in these various jurisdictions. Due to the dynamic nature of their operations and the regulations, our client relies on a program of comprehensive, third-party compliance audits as one tool for evaluating compliance and managing its environmental risk. The audit program provides our client and its environmental legal counsel a detailed snapshot into regulatory compliance and management practices at locations across the U.S. and Canada.
Our auditors provide recommendations and determine the source of non-compliant issues. We analyze trends and patterns between current and previous findings to determine the root cause of findings. Our team delivers recommendations and process implementation whereby corporate management system framework elements are seamlessly integrated into the existing program. At the conclusion of each audit, our auditor submits a summary of the facilities regulated activities and a detailed report containing audit findings, citations and recommendations.
WSP’s goal is to be more thorough than an agency inspector so that our clients can proactively deal with compliance issues and avoid fines or penalties that could result from a compliance inspection. We continue to provide routine and surprise compliance audits on an annual basis.
