Services: Compliance Management and Environmental Due Diligence: Success Stories

 

Environmental Site Assessments Support Wireless Communication Industry
GESI completed multi-site Phase I – Preliminary Environmental Site Assessments conducted in substantial accordance with applicable portions of the American Society for Testing Materials (ASTM) Standard E1527 and National Environmental Protection Act Review. A review of Real Property title searches of the subject areas, readily obtainable EPA records, site geology, hydrogeology, hydrology and topography were reviewed. Visual inspections were also conducted for each site. GESI provided written reports documenting the findings and providing recommendations as warranted.

Pre-Acquisition Due Diligence Saves Purchaser from Potential Fines
As part of pre-acquisition activities, GESI performed Phase I Preliminary Environmental Site Assessments and Limited Environmental, Safety and Health Compliance reviews at three textile webbing plants. GESI also audited employee health and safety records, identifying areas of concern related to OSHA requirements. Based on GESI recommendations, modifications were made at all plants in advance of upcoming inspections, saving thousands of dollars in potential fines.

Risk Assessment Work Plan Supports Chemical Manufacturing Plant
GESI was retained to complete the facility’s Risk Management Program (RMP) registration. The project included completion of an evaluation of worst case and alternate scenario releases of chemicals covered by the Clean Air Act Risk Management Program. GESI also performed a Process Safety Management (PSM) audit to evaluate compliance with the OSHA PSM requirements as defined at 29 CFR 1910.119. GESI prepared a combined work plan to address the deficiencies identified in the OSHA PSM audit, as well as the requirements of the Risk Management Program and the Chemical Manufacturers Association Responsible Care Program.

Quick Response Ensures Compliance for Automotive Parts Manufacturer
GESI was retained by several automotive parts manufacturing facilities within the same parent company to prepare the facility SARA Title III Toxic Chemical Release Inventory (TRI) reports. GESI successfully completed the TRI reports for all facilities, even though the majority of the requests were received within a few weeks prior to the report submittal deadline.
