With increasingly complex supply chains and globalization, the challenges of EHS and Sustainability continue to evolve.
A safety gap analysis is a useful tool that EHS management can use to zero in on areas in need of improvement that will give them the highest level of ROI.

Specifically, we assess current operating practices, determine applicable regulatory requirements, evaluate compliance with existing permits and identify areas of noncompliance with the following environmental regulations:
