Environmental, Health, and Safety for Commercial Properties
Emilcott provides a wide variety of environmental, health, and safety services to commercial entities such as retailers, corporate offices and multi-tenant buildings, and hotels. Because employees and the public are often in close proximity to your operations, additional safety precautions are often required to protect others.
Emilcott’s commercial EHS services are offered in
- Northeast United States: New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, and Massachusetts
- Southeast United States: North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Georgia, Alabama, and Florida
We will also consider additional service areas in the continental United States and Canada if requested.
The retail industry has some unique challenges in managing an effective Environmental and H&S program that covers its employees and the public. Traditionally this industry is not considered a high-hazard industry like manufacturing. However, many hazards can lead to worker injury and non-compliance to OSHA regulations. The retail industry is often made up of a workforce with many young, transient workers who are inexperienced when it comes to implementing basic health and safety practices. This requires an H&S program that emphasizes the training of employees and their supervisors to help them identify basic hazards associated with retailing and ways to ensure these hazards are controlled.
Emilcott has succeeded in helping retail operations design and implement programs that meet OSHA, EPA, and Life Safety (NFPA) regulations and guidelines. These programs have addressed all aspects of the retail operation, from materials handling (lift trucks), ergonomics (lifting), chemical usage and storage, and emergency procedures.
Corporate Office and Multi-tenant Buildings
Workers in office buildings have to meet various environmental, health, and safety regulations and guidelines. There are some specific hazards found in offices and multi-tenant buildings that can negatively impact the indoor air quality for both workers and the public using the facility. These hazards can include:
· asbestos, lead, mold, and other potential contaminants found in building materials
· gases and vapors that seep into the building from contamination in the surrounding soil (i.e., vapor intrusion)
· poor air quality due to lack of clean make-up air coming into the building and effectively being distributed throughout the occupied areas.
We have solved many complex and straightforward indoor air quality issues and complaints. We have also assisted in developing effective OSHA, EPA, and Life Safety compliance programs to ensure all operations in the building, such as maintenance, shipping and receiving, and waste handling, are conducted safely.
Hotels have to meet various environmental and health, and safety regulations and guidelines. Many hotels were built before 1970 and have asbestos, lead, and other potential contaminants found in their building materials that can cause an exposure potential to both workers and the public. Other indoor air quality concerns, such as mold, gases, and vapors seeping into the building from contamination in the surrounding soil (i.e., vapor intrusion), poorly maintained ventilation cooling towers, and lack of clean make-up air for the HVAC system, can create possible health concerns to workers and the public.
We have solved many simple and complex air quality problems in hotels. We have also assisted hotels in developing effective OSHA, EPA, and Life Safety compliance programs to ensure all operations in the building, such as maintenance, shipping and receiving, and waste handling, are conducted safely.
