Successful operation of a biotechnology, life science or pharmaceutical manufacturing facility requires integration of environmental, health and safety (EH&S) compliance requirements into facility management systems. CAPACCIO has extensive experience in delivering EH&S services and engineering solutions to facility and EH&S managers. We serve our clients with facility set up and closure protocols; occupational safety and health compliance; preparation and submittal of environmental permits and registrations; design of manufacturing process and laboratory air and water pollution control systems; development and delivery of health and safety training services; hazardous waste management; and the availability of on-site EH&S professional staff.
Below is a sampling of just some of the projects we have performed for this industry. For more information on our services and experience, please contact Linda Swift at 508.970.0033 ext. 119.
