In industry, there are well prescribed regulations for businesses that conduct activities known to impact their workers, and our Earth’s air, water, and soil. These minimum requirements are designed to protect human health and the environment. Nowadays, however, consumers expect more than the bare minimum from the companies they choose to use. They want to know that the products they purchase are manufactured in a way that is protective of workers and the environment, that the product is healthy for them, and that the end-of-product life has been considered. They also are interested in what companies are doing to get involved and support the local community to advance the greater good.
Additionally, businesses whose activities do not meet the applicability requirements compelling them to comply with such federal, state, or local regulations need to understand they have a potential to impact our Earth by how they conduct operations, what they purchase, and their leadership and employee behavior. Often times, simple steps in conducting business can go a long way to protecting your workers and the environment...and saving your business money! Such eco-friendly steps show your clients that you not only care about them as a customer, but as a human being, and that you are doing your part to share our Earth now, and for generations to come.
For three decades, I have worked to clean up and protect our Earth through contaminated property assessment, prevention planning, identification and interpretation of EHS regulations, and auditing businesses and industries to ensure compliance with regulations. As a Professional Engineer in three states (TX, CA, and NY), I am committed to upholding and advancing the integrity, honor and dignity of my profession by holding paramount the safety, health and welfare of the public, and striving to comply with the principles of sustainable development in the performance of my professional duties. As a LEED AP, I understand the impact of the built environment on the natural environment.
Whether your industry is subject to EHS regulations, or you are a business desiring to reduce your impact on our Earth where regulations do not apply, I help you understand how your business practices impact people and our planet and work with you to build a corporate social and sustainability program that goes beyond compliance, doing what you can to protect your employees and our Earth.
