Environmental, Safety, Health and Quality
Businesses operating in high-risk industries like nuclear environmental remediation must work within the bounds of numerous complex, intertwined environmental, safety and health, and quality assurance regulations. Failure to comply with these regulations can be costly, involving corrective action, work stoppage, and fines.
Lucas routinely works in this environment. On staff we have experienced subject matter experts in the full suite of these regulations, who are available to identify, assess, and help correct technical compliance problems within your organization.
And when we get involved in an assessment, we recognize that your organization is an organic, interconnected whole, which means we don’t focus only on one aspect while ignoring all the others. That’s why, unlike our competitors, we take a highly integrated, holistic approach to environmental, health and safety, and performance assessment.
Our scientists and environmental specialists are experts in key regulations, including the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA), the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), and the Endangered Species Act.
Our services include:
Environmental compliance reviews,
Environmental documentation preparation,
Reviewing and compiling historical site records,
Conduct surveys for special status species, and
Establishing effective and appropriate mitigation measures.
Safety and Health Services
The high-risk industries in which we work are governed by a broad set of safety and health regulations. More than that, the companies working in these industries have a moral imperative to protect their workers and the public. We help our clients understand the federal and state safety and health regulations that affect them, and show them how to comply with these regulations while maintaining a high-performance operation.
Safety is the top priority for DOE work. Understanding and embracing this is key to success for any DOE contractor. Our expertise in DOE’s Integrated Safety Management Systems (ISMS) requirements equips us to guide you in effectively integrating ISMS into your company’s operations. In the same way, we add expertise in the DOE-STD-1189-2008, Integration of Safety into the Design Process. We can help build your program, assess and improve its compliance and effectiveness, and provide training.
Most of our people have lived in a NQA-1 quality environment for their whole career, and that’s a big advantage when we get involved in managing quality on any project. Operating safely and to a high standard is second nature to us – and we are now taking this expertise to clients outside the nuclear industry.
We understand how to tailor quality requirements and processes to the risk associated with the particular activity. When it comes to quality, we get it. We know how to integrate it into all aspects of company operations and processes, and not just apply it at the end of the process.
