ENVIRONMENTAL AUDIT REPORT

SCOPE OF WORK

We shall work out comprehensive Environmental Audit checklists specially designed and tailored to go well with your operations and to suit your peculiar concerns. The audit will provide top-performance data analysis with verifiable reference laboratory results and dependable baseline findings. We will go in dept of every element of environmental system, audit them, collect and publish all relevant data required to make the report acceptable to State Ministry of Environment, the National Environmental Standards and Regulations Enforcement Agency (NESREA) and other relevant regulatory agencies

The basis of the study is the generation of baseline environmental information on your facility and characterising conditions in place. The scope of this baseline data generation process will cover the following areas:

  • Vegetation Studies
  • Soil Studies
  • Air Quality Studies
  • Climate and Meteorology Studies
  • Groundwater Studies
  • Impacts and Mitigation

The major objectives of this environmental audit include the followings:

  • Generation of adequate environmental information assessment of your facility for the potential environment risks that are likely to be caused by the operations of its facilities.
  • Achieving maximum resource optimisation and improved process performance.
  • Encouraging the company to self-regulate their environmental practices, and to increase their responsibility to stakeholders and society.
  • Ensuring compliance with regulatory requirements.

Typical issues to be addressed during the comprehensive site audit included:

  • Review of Sitting and Adjacent Land Use
  • Compliance with relevant Legislation
  • Contaminated land
  • Building Structures
  • Emissions to air
  • Emissions to Water
  • Noise Impacts
  • Emission control technologies, their operation status and effectiveness
  • Waste Disposal
  • Health and Safety
  • Other Issues (general housekeeping, storage of petroleum products, site security, fire precautions etc.)
FINAL REPORT

The final report will include the following among others:
