Regulatory Approach
Our strict Environmental and Safety controls and daily inspections ensure that treatment and storage areas are compliant and that equipment is properly maintained. The management team is responsible for guiding the direction of the company, toward continual improvement in the Environmental, Health and Safety arena. Our program includes developing and maintaining a culture of safety and environmental compliance within the workforce, implementing appropriate programs and management systems to improve the health and safety of the employees, and monitoring regulatory changes and trends. This allows us to maintain compliance with current Environmental, Health and Safety Regulations.
