OHSAS 18001 ASSESSMENT
The client, a leading owner and operator of renewable energy projects in North America, retained CAPACCIO to complete an OHSAS 18001 assessment of the site’s health and safety operations and compare them to the requirements of OHSAS 18001. Findings and recommendations were presented in a summary report and table.
REVIEW OF CORPORATE RESPONSIBILITY PROGRAM
CAPACCIO conducted an assessment of this utility’s facilities, including the office building which houses the client’s headquarters operation. As part of the assessment, CAPACCIO evaluated how the client tracks energy management and greenhouse gas emissions in all of its operations. CAPACCIO also examined how the client supports and facilitates energy reduction programs throughout the service area with a wide variety of different stakeholder groups. This client has one of the lowest greenhouse gas emissions of the top 100 electric utilities in the United States. They feel that these programs and other corporate responsibility programs make them an attractive investment in the stock market.
INTERNAL EMS EVALUATION OF COMPLIANCE AUDIT
The client retained CAPACCIO to complete an evaluation of compliance for the site’s EMS defined regulatory requirements. The internal audit included a systematic and independent review of the internal processes. This allowed CAPACCIO to objectively determine the adequacy and effectiveness of the client’s management systems and policies for maintaining compliance with federal, state, and local environmental laws and regulations. These included the Oil and Hazardous Material Release Prevention and Response Act, the Hazardous Waste Management Act, DOT and the CWA.
