Environmental, Health and Safety for Governmental Organizations

Emilcott works both directly and indirectly with governmental organizations and authorities charged with overseeing public health and safety.  In today’s complex regulatory landscape, it is more critical than ever that business and government find a way to work collaboratively.  Emilcott often serves as that bridge, letting science and expertise help guide productive and effective solutions. Finding innovative solutions and being able to both articulate and sell their benefits to private and public stakeholders, has been a core strength of the Emilcott team.

Federal and State Agencies

Federal and State agencies often need targeted EH&S expertise to meet their public mission. They also have to meet the same environmental, health and safety requirements and regulations required of the private sector. We have successfully worked with a number of Federal agencies such as the US DOE, DOD, EPA, and HHS make sure their employees are working safely and that their operations are meeting their environmental goals.


Municipal governments face many of the same challenges when it comes to protecting the health and safety of the public, their employees, and the environment. Many city and local governments do not have the budgets to employ full time specialists. To meet these challenges, we provide expertise and guidance to help develop and implement environmental, health and safety programs, training and related community liaison services. Our experience spans from small towns to complex urban settings such as New York City. We have often worked side-by-side with leadership and their employees in crisis and emergency situations.

Emilcott's government EHS services are offered in the Northeast U.S. in New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, and Massachusetts, as well as in the Southeast U.S. in 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.
