Risk Mitigation

We offer risk mitigation services through Pollution Prevention and Best Management Practices.

  • Pollution Prevention Practices include background information on an environmental hazard and provide best practices on how to prevent the release of toxic and hazardous pollutants into the environment. These best practices are common environmental controls generally used and accepted by industry.

  • Best Management Practices (BMPs) are similar to Pollution Prevention Practices but focus more on health and safety of employees by providing best practices on how to identify and prevent an accident from happening. These best practices are common safety controls generally used and accepted by industry.
