People who live near facilities that use hazardous chemicals are entitled by law to know what they are encountering in the air, water and soil. These laws and regulations are commonly called “Community Right to Know”. At the Institute for Environmental Assessment, Inc. (IEA), our health and safety consultants help clients fulfill the requirements of the Emergency Planning and Community Right to Know Act (EPCRA).
IEA is an environmental health and safety consulting firm founded in 1984. From our base in Minnesota, we serve schools, industries, hospitals and government agencies throughout the United States. Our professional staff is highly credentialed and experienced; they help clients develop Community Right to Know programs customized for each client’s circumstances.
Our safety consultants help clients comply with the EPCRA in the following ways:
- Identify extremely hazardous substances (EHS) on-site in quantities that require reporting
- Develop and submit required annual toxic chemical release forms
- Conduct EPCRA compliance evaluations
- Prepare and file emergency response plans if required
- Train employees on the requirements of EPCRA
- Maintain documentation of all actions taken to comply with EPCRA and associated regulations
Our staff provides these and other related services in a timely manner, with sensitivity to your organization’s budget.
