Some firms excel at fixing environmental problems after they’ve occurred. Aegis prefers to steer its clients clear of trouble before it begins.
Why is environmental auditing a vital part of your operations? Audits are the critical measurement tools of any environmental management program. Audits conducted by an independent, outside entity gauge the effectiveness of the organizational structure and management involvement in facility environmental affairs. A thorough audit will assess compliance with specific permitting and regulatory requirements and evaluate “best management practices” currently utilized in the facility and observed in other industries, with the purpose of improving the facility’s overall environmental program. Additionally, the EPA not only encourages audit programs, but often provides enforcement discretion for self-reporting infractions noted during audits.
Aegis has conducted numerous compliance audits for municipalities, academic and industrial/commercial clients, and has assisted in the development of environmental audit programs for baseline compliance and/or Environmental Management System (EMS) programs. Aegis staff consists of professionals certified in the following: RABQSA Environmental Management Systems, RABQSA Management Systems Auditing, RABQSA Leading Management System Audit Teams, LEED AP and Energy Management.
