Avoiding Environmental Setbacks During Construction

ECOH’s webinar included discussions on a variety of topics related to environmental, health and safety (EH&S) issues encountered on construction projects. Matt Laneville highlighted the impacts of unaddressed issues and the best approaches to control potential setbacks, using a number of case studies to demonstrate real-world examples of good (and bad) practices.

ECOH’s Expertise

ECOH is committed to providing excellent and timely services to assist you in identifying potential EH&S concerns, prior to construction, to minimize negative outcomes related to, for example:

  • Asbestos
  • Lead
  • Abandoned Chemicals and Laboratories
  • Wastewater
  • Mould
  • PCB’s

These EH&S concerns can have potentially negative impacts on a project, such as:

  • Worker health and safety hazards
  • Project delays
  • Cost overruns
  • Regulatory non-compliance (potentially leading to order, stop-work orders, fines, etc.)

To avoid environmental setbacks during a project, ECOH emphasizes and promotes the following:

  • Proper training for individuals
  • Pre-construction surveys of hazardous materials and reviews of planned construction activities
  • Development of safe work procedures and use of engineering controls
