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 articulating and selling their benefits to private and public stakeholders has been a core strength of the Emilcott team.

Emilcott’s government 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.

Federal and State Agencies

Federal and State agencies often need targeted EHS 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 several Federal agencies such as the US DOE, DOD, EPA, and HHS to make sure their employees are working safely and that their operations meet their environmental goals.


Municipal governments face many of the same challenges in 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. Emilcott provides expertise and guidance to help develop and implement EHS programs, training, and related community liaison services to meet these challenges. 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 emergencies.
