The Environment Protection Authority assumes that you ought to know the activities that have in the past or are currently causing contamination, or the potential to cause contamination across a business’s activities. This being the case simply understanding the "waste" across your business is the least you need to do. Our qualified and experienced audit team have undertaken contamination investigation, analysis, recommendations and validation across government, industry and defence.
Our team undertake the audit/assessment to understand the current activities on site looking at council records and aerial photographs to understand the historical activities that may have occurred on site. We also assess soil and groundwater samples or wells to ensure compliance across areas of concern as early as possible to minimise risk exposure going forward.
Where contamination exists, remediation programs should be set in place as soon as possible. This will reduce the footprint of the contamination and any areas of concern. Our team are able to take the lead role in remediation programs through planning scheduling contracting project management and validating any remediation program.
The Environmental Protection Authority‘s (EPA’s) definition of audit is one that has a duty to the public and the environment. By definition the auditor must provide auditing at arm’s length or as an independent, 3rd party. The environmental management team have access to Certified Environmental Auditors right across Australia and can implement an Environmental audit effectively, confidentially and at short notice to meet any Environment based compliance issue.
Managing risk is what we do. Working with companies and Departments and understand risk. Environmental risk assessments converge on the key areas of concern Ecological and Human risks. Both are equally important and both key areas of concern for environmental compliance.
