Anyone using significant quantities of hazardous materials over threshold quantities is typically required to report their types and volumes to regulatory authorities.  In California, Business Plans detailing requested information must be submitted to the local Certified Unified Program Agencies (CUPAs) who are responsible for collecting and managing chemical inventory data and emergency response planning.  MEHS works with our clients to develop required reports and associated Emergency Response Planning tools and procedures to ensure complete compliance and planning for emergencies.

MEHS has assisted organizations in creating detailed business emergency response and risk management plans that act as critical guidelines or procedures in the event of accidental releases or spills.  These plans organize procedures, practices, and equipment to be used along with engineering diagrams to assess the relative risk of release.  After the required plans have been submitted, MEHS will work with you to develop appropriate risk management and training procedures and assist with coordination of activities among various response agencies.  MEHS offers the following hazardous materials management consulting services:

  • Hazardous Materials Business Plan Development;
  • Process Safety Management (PSM) Planning and Hazardous operations (HAZOP) reviews;
  • Federal and CalARP Risk Management Plans (RMPs);
  • Accidental Release Calculations Modeling;
  • Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) Compliance; and
  • Management of Change (MOC) Procedures.
