Environmental Health and Safety Services

COMPLIANCE ASSISTANCE

RMA guides clients through environmental and safety regulatory complexities, conducts focused compliance audits, and develops compliance assistance programs tailored to client needs. Utilizing our experience in regulatory analysis and implementation, our team can perform comprehensive compliance evaluations related to safety, air, water, toxics, and solid and hazardous waste programs. RMA can also successfully negotiate with regulatory agencies on behalf of clients for better permit conditions or better enforcement conditions. Many companies rely on RMA's expertise to manage various levels of their regulatory compliance rather than maintaining a staff of comparable experts in-house. Many regulations are now so complex that it often makes more sense to outsource EHS issues to experts rather than place those responsibilities on personnel with little training or experience and risk fines and bad publicity from enforcement actions. Worse yet, some issues, if not addressed by experts, can lead to serious injuries or death. By outsourcing, many companies have found that they get better results for less money.
