EHS / Environmental Compliance

In recent years environmental, social and labour concerns have led to a significant increase in the scope of compliance obligations across all regulatory environments. Being closely related, environmental, social concerns and compliance activities have become more integrated in order to avoid conflict and risk to assets all with the view of ensuring continued sustainability.With both environmental, health and safety legislation, organisations have a duty of care to ensure that the environment, society at large and employees, who may be affected by the company’s undertakings, remain safe and protected at all times. Moral obligations involve the protection of the environment, employee’s health and well-being, while ensuring their safety. Legal reasons for Occupational Safety and Health practices, including sound environmental management relate to the preventative, punitive and compensatory effects of laws that protect worker’s safety, health and the environment.
