Safety and Health Programs, HAZWOPER Site-Specific Safety, and Health Plan (SSHP) Development:

Safety and Health Program/Plan Development: Federal, state, and local regulatory agencies require all employers to prepare, and maintain a number of effective written environmental health and safety (EH&S) programs and site specific safety plans. Many regulatory standards, such as the HAZWOPER Standard, also require employers to develop and implement certain site and activity-specific EH&S Plans corresponding to the performance of certain hazardous tasks and operations. Such site/activity specific plans are common in a wide variety of industries ranging from construction to biotechnology. At BioMax Environmental, our Certified Industrial hygiene (CIH) professionals design and implement EH&S plans/programs to simplify our client’s environmental obligations. We apply our comprehensive understanding of the EH&S regulatory framework with our diverse field experience to help our clients respond to the ever-changing regulatory environment with written plans and programs that are strategically designed to be simple to understand, workable for current activities, and flexible for future operations. BioMax Environmental professionals have developed and implemented a great number of written worker protection plans and EH&S programs including:

• Site-Specific Safety and Health Plans
• Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response (HAZWOPER) Programs
• Injury and Illness Prevention Programs (IIPP)
• Hazard Communication Plans
• Emergency Action Plans
• Spill Response Plans

• Chemical Hygiene Plans
• Lead Compliance Plans
• Respiratory Protection Programs
• Personal Protective Equipment Programs
• Hearing Conservation Programs
• Permit Required Confined Space Programs
• Medical Surveillance Programs

The technical writing abilities of our staff have been held in such high regard that many have been published in a number of commercially available environmental compliance manuals. These publications have been designed to aid environmental professionals, lawyers, and even those who have simply inherited compliance responsibilities and who must quickly come up to speed in this area.
