Phase I ESA
Risks can be costly is dealing with hazardous waste contamination discovered on your property. Performing an environmental site assessment prior to acquiring a property can minimize that risk.
It involves a review of records, a site inspection, and interviews with owners, occupants, neighbors and local government officials. While sampling and laboratory analysis are not always included in this phase, they should still be conducted by an environmental professional trained in the appropriate standards.
The review of government records and interviews may take a lot of time. To ensure a quality assessment, allow sufficient time for the process. We will make sure provide a report in the least possible time using trained professionals.
Phase II ESA
AEC can help you proceed with Phase II if your findings on Phase I suggests the chance of contamination.
Depending on the results of the Phase I, Phase II work could include surface and sub-surface soil analysis, groundwater analysis, installing monitoring wells, indoor air sampling, mold sampling, asbestos sampling, lead sampling etc. The need for any sampling or testing in Phase II Environmental Site Assessments is based purely on the findings of the Phase I.
The goal of closure oversight is to ensure that the hazardous materials in facilities undergoing closure are transported, disposed of, or reused in a matter which eliminates the need for further maintenance and any threat to public health and safety or the environment.
This is accomplished by a Hazardous Materials Specialist evaluating all submitted closure documents, determining if the facility is subject to Closure oversight, conducting inspections, and guiding businesses throughout the entire process by providing information on permits, fees, and other requirements.
Industrial hygiene is the science of anticipating, recognizing, evaluating, and controlling workplace conditions that may cause workers’ injury or illness.
Our industrial hygienists use environmental monitoring and analytical methods to detect the extent of worker exposure and employ engineering, work practice controls, and other methods to control potential health hazards.
Dust Mitigation Plan
Most construction projects in high density urban areas must prepare a Dust Mitigation Plan when operating equipment at the job site that is capable of causing or permitting emission of dust into the atmosphere during work progress. This plan provide precautionary measures to be taken based on the type and level of the dust measurement. AEC can provide dust mitigation plan specifically for each project and also provide monitoring devices during construction with the state-of-the-art equipment.
Asbestos Dust Mitigation Plan
This plan is required for grading projects located in Naturally Occurring Asbestos (NOA) designated areas to eliminate origins of dust from the site, identifying potential dust migration pathways, monitoring dust produced by site activities and implementing corrective actions as the need arises. AEC provides Asbestos Dust Mitigation Plan and along with monitoring during grading which includes sampling and testing the produced dust for finding any asbestos.
Site Characterization Plan
Health and Safety Plan (EHASP)
Environmental, Health and Safety Plan is required per the California Occupational Safety and Health Administration (Cal-OSHA) standard for Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response (Title 8 CCR, GISO 5192) for any construction activity. This plan includes:
- Project Safety and Authority
- Medical Surveillance
- Safety/Orientation Training
- Hazard Assessment
- Air Monitoring Control
- General Project Safety Requirements
- Personal Protective Equipment Requirements
- Decontamination/Contamination Reduction Procedures
- Emergency Response Procedures
