Environmental, Health, and Safety (EHS) programs are all about people: keeping workers safe and ensuring operations meet and exceed regulations to ensure all employees go home in the same condition they arrived.
BBJ Group can help you develop an EHS program from the ground up or assisting with businesses looking to take their safety program to a higher level by conducting safety leadership training for frontline leaders, conducting on-site audits, and assisting clients with ISO 45001 and OSHA VPP programs. We provide the OSHA 10 and 30 Hour General Awareness and issue completion cards to students from the Department of Labor/Occupational Safety and Health Administration Outreach Training Program. The benefits of OSHA training include:
BBJ Group can assist you with all aspects of your safety programs, from custom written safety and health programs, employee training, and assessing the workplace for hazards, and fixing them. We also assist with Due Diligence projects, EHS plan development and audits, ISO 14001 system development and audits, EHS strategy development, and EHS Management.
Example projects include the following:
BBJ Group completed environmental due diligence services for an approximately 5,200-acre property consisting of 71 parcels. The property was developed with a mixed-use (commercial and residential) area and a large tract of undeveloped and forested property. To thoroughly evaluate the large undeveloped portions of the property, BBJ Group used unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs or drones) to survey and review live aerial imagery feeds for select portions of the property and identify areas of potential concern and abandoned structures that required “boots on the ground” observations. In addition to completing AAI and ASTM compliant Phase I ESAs for the property, BBJ Group worked hand-in-hand with client and legal counsel, evaluating the property’s wetlands to provide environmental guidance with respect to the proposed redevelopment.
BBJ Group performed due diligence at a brownfield property in Atlanta, Georgia that a client sought to redevelop. As a result of BBJ Group’s Phase II investigation, significant concentrations of lead were identified in the surface soil at the property, believed to result from the placement of impacted fill material. To evaluate closure options, BBJ Group developed models to assess potential exposure to the lead for multiple receptors via multiple exposure pathways. The calculations included elements from reputable models including 1) the Integrated Exposure Uptake Biokinetic Model for Lead in Children (IEUBK), 2) the Soil Screening Level Partitioning Equation, and 3) the Georgia Adult Lead Model (GALM). These models allowed BBJ Group to evaluate risk to sensitive populations who may be present at the proposed redevelopment, including children and pregnant women.
Using the model results, BBJ Group evaluated various remedial options and prepared associated opinions of cost. The opinions of cost allowed the client to evaluate their development options and manage risk associated with the site.
