Environmental Management and Regulatory Support Services
Return to Services Home

CJW provides a variety of environmental compliance-related services that are integral to CJW's environmental management consulting practice. Compliance services are typically provided as part of a broader scope of work which includes assisting clients in developing and improving overall environmental management programs at the corporate or business level.

CJW's recommended approach to environmental auditing includes reviewing management systems and practices while auditing for regulatory compliance. Experience indicates that most causes of regulatory noncompliance are rooted in a lack of environmental policies, training and employee communications. Conducting a review of the underlying systems generally leads to long-term solutions.

CJW's compliance audits result in prioritized recommendations for achieving compliance or improved efficiency. The prioritization process identifies environmental areas of concern and ranks them based on the EPA's definition of environmental compliance risks. CJW's auditors distinguish between significant, major and minor problems and also classify them as either regulatory or procedural. Audit reports document the findings, classifying them in accordance with the level of concern, and recommend corrective actions. In this way an initial audit can serve as the starting point for developing management programs that reduce liability. Follow-up audits can be used to fine-tune and check progress on those programs.

CJW develops and presents training courses for those involved in environmental, hazardous materials, and safety and health issues. Instructors rely upon many years of on-site and teaching experience combined with regulatory knowledge to present practical, comprehensive courses, many of which feature hands-on training. CJW frequently customizes courses or designs unique programs to satisfy client's needs. CJW can develop courses tailored to your specific needs on such topics as hazardous waste management, hazard communication, confined space entry, respiratory safety, interpretation of material safety data sheets in addition to the standard courses for compliance with the OSHA 29 CFR 1910.120 Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response Standard.
