Risk Management Plans
New rules under the Clean Air Act require risk management plans that evaluate and assess potential accidental release scenarios, implement comprehensive techniques to prevent release, and establish an emergency response program. One of the most difficult aspects of the new rule is the requirement to identify worst case accidental release scenarios within a Risk Management Plan (RMP). For companies that do not maintain a full time staff to deal with compliance issues, Apex can develop worst case scenarios and management plans tailored to your business needs.
Outside of the EPA's new Risk Management rule, environmental risk management also applies to a variety of other companies. Banks or finance companies involved in financing real estate or plant expansions, insurance companies involved in pollution liability insurance or situations where environmental claims may arise under general or specific types of liability insurance policies, or any other company which may have financial or business interest in any situation where there may be environmental exposure.
Environmental risk assessments may be as simple as a Phase I environmental Site Assessment for a real estate transaction, or as complex as a full process and regulatory compliance analysis and/or audit of a business to determine suitability for insurance purposes.
