Environmental, Health and Safety Programs
An EHS program consists of policies and procedures and how they will be managed. What policies are required in order to be OSHA-compliant? What must be inspected and who should inspect it? Who must be trained? How should incidents be investigated? The environmental, health and safety experts at EI answer these and other questions and build an entire program from the ground up or we can audit your existing program to identify weaknesses. EI’s Certified Safety Professionals (CSP) are committed to helping clients develop, improve and maintain a safety system that meets current OSHA standards and fosters employee compliance. EI’s safety professionals are skilled and experienced in all areas of workplace safety and capable of helping you to protect your most valuable resource… your employees.
Perhaps you have a need for OSHA-required policies. The regulatory experts at EI can provide you with written polices which are designed to meet OSHA requirements or we can conduct a comprehensive review of your existing OSHA-required written policies such as lockout, confined space entry, hearing conservation and others to help improve compliance and worker safety.

IN NEED OF OUR SERVICES?
Great article Bill! Really enjoyed the read. Very important stuff for everyone that maintains an OSHA 300 Log to know. Even after 22 years of doing this type of recordkeeping, I even learned a couple of new things from this article.
Phase Is are conducted per ASTM E 1527-13 and include several major components: a site reconnaissance, completion of a User Questionnaire, a regulatory database search, interviews with persons knowledgeable of the property, and a review of reasonably ascertainable and readily available historical sources to identify the use of the property back to 1940 or its first developed use, whichever is earlier. As such, the ASTM E 1527-13 Standard Practice provides specific guidance as to what must be addressed. However, there is no ASTM standard for Desktop Reviews (more commonly called Risk Search with Risk Assessments-RSRAs). Therefore, RSRAs differ from consultant to consultant and also do not provide protection on CERCLA.
