No company can afford to be associated with causing damage to the environment. The negative press and damage to hard earned reputation can affect customer confidence and sales.
In addition the government has recently introduced new sentencing guidelines which could substantially increase the levels of fines faced by businesses for environmental offences.
OHES Environmental can provide a range of services to assist companies with prevention, preparedness, spill advice and clean up:
On-site environmental audits can help you understand potential environmental risks and establish whether installations are compliant with current regulation
Incident response plans provide clear and concise actions to take if a spill occurs
Spill kit awareness training can instruct your own staff how to select and deploy spill kit materials effectively, thus minimising cost, disruption and the risk of prosecution
When an incident occurs most companies do not know what to do or who to call for help. OHES provide 24/7 incident advice free of charge to Pen clients.
This means that if a spill occurs you have access to a highly skilled incident advisor at the end of the phone, who will calmly provide specialist advice about containment, clean up and health and safety of your employees and customers.
If required, OHES can also send a trained consultant to your premises to manage an incident on your behalf and deal with the regulators such as the Environment Agency.
OHES are also UK Spill approved contractors so they can, if required, mobilise their own teams or an approved contractor to cost effectively clean up to minimise the risk of prosecution and fines
