Compliance and Management System Audits
personnel have performed compliance audits for a wide range of industrial
clients. Compliance audits are an important tool toward maintaining regulatory
compliance and in identifying process improvements – both of which can
translate into cost savings.
GESI’s approach to compliance audits involves not only a review of compliance
with federal, state, and local regulations and permit requirements, but
also management systems and practices in place to maintain compliance
on a daily basis after process modifications. The goal of the GESI audit
process is not just to identify compliance issues but also to provide
recommendations to address these issues and improve a facility’s ability
to maintain compliance.
GESI personnel conduct two primary types of compliance audits. The Environmental
Compliance Audit is typically conducted with respect to U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency regulations and applicable state and local environmental
regulations. The Safety and Health Compliance Audit generally covers the
Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations, industrial
hygiene programs and practices, medical monitoring programs, general accident
reduction practices, and general loss control procedures.
Compliance audits are provided as a stand-alone service or are routinely
conducted in conjunction with Phase I Environmental Site Assessments in
support of a real estate or property transaction.
