Regulatory Compliance

Business owners and operators are responsible for compliance with a large number of federal, state and local regulations concerning safety and health in the workplace.  Federal agencies such as the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) have established regulations pertaining to air quality and personal exposure of employees and the general public to a variety of air contaminants.  The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) is responsible for enforcement of federal and state regulations addressing health issues faced by the community.  Local fire departments, in conjunction with national organizations such as the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), are charged with ensuring life safety issues within residences and commercial establishments are adequately planned for.  And, both OSHA and the Department of Transportation (DOT) have established rules and guidelines to address safety in the workplace and during the transport of products across the nation.

Sorting out the applicable regulations, and ensuring that compliance is achieved, is a difficult task for many of today’s organizations.  AGW is uniquely staffed with industrial hygienists, engineers, and environmental scientists who are highly qualified to assist clients in the interpretation of safety and health requirements, and to oversee the implementation of programs to ensure compliance with the multitude of regulations.  AGW's capabilities in the area of regulatory compliance audits and abatement assistance include:
