Multi-Media Environmental Compliance Audits

Soil, air, water, waste – for most industrial facilities these media are intertwined. A comprehensive review of all media often provides options and alternatives for cost savings/risk reduction that may not be recognized independently. Furthermore, multi-media compliance audits have proven to be valuable benchmarks and measurement tools for environmental improvements and cost reductions.

Under the Multimedia Audit, RSB conducts a detail evaluation of the various processes performed at the facility, the chemicals used and the various pieces of equipment processing those chemicals as well as emissions, from both process and fugitives on site sources. Review for compliance is done for oil water separators, underground storage tanks, onsite sewage facilities, and waste water discharge catchments etc. A review of the site toxic substances and Emergency Planning and Right to Know standards is also performed. Additionally, evaluation for the any applicable air permits needed to operate is completed.
