According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA), the mission of a medical facility is to protect and improve the health of those in the community being served. With thousands of hospitals and other healthcare facilities in the country, however, the potential environmental and health impacts from these operations can be significant. Healthcare facilities use a wide range of toxic chemicals, generate considerable quantities of waste, and consume large amounts of energy and water.
ECS helps healthcare facilities comply with environmental regulations and requirements. Specific areas we assist with include laboratories, “clean rooms” (surgery, acute care, research, etc.), power generation units, storage tanks, maintenance garages, oil storage, dining halls, grounds keeping areas and recreational facilities.
A key component of successful compliance programs is staff training and educational support. You may receive a variety of compliance training programs dealing with environmental regulations and occupational safety concerns. Our in-house and on-site seminars cover topics such as waste management, spill prevention and response, storm water management, storage tank compliance, federal and state-specific air regulations, and variety of OSHA programs including hazard communication, personal protective equipment and blood-borne pathogens.
