Overview

Total Environmental Compliance: A Practical Guide for Environmental Professionals gives you the background and skills you need to ensure total environmental compliance in your organization. Instead of dryly describing theoretical management systems or reciting regulatory provisions, the author delves into the challenging issues of why organizations disregard this important issue and explains how to promote compliance-oriented attitudes throughout the entire organization.
The Guide focuses on critical elements such as communication skills, hiring and retaining qualified employees, managing environmental information, and maintaining high standards of professionalism. Other topics covered include: how to understand environmental requirements, why organizations violate environmental laws, and the aspects of permitting, designing, and monitoring that must be considered to achieve and sustain compliance. Case studies illustrate actual instances of individuals and organizations who ran afoul of environmental laws because they disregarded the basic principles of environmental compliance.
Total Environmental Compliance: A Practical Guide for Environmental Professionals explores how noncompliance occurs and how to avoid it using techniques that address legal requirements. It shows you how to protect your organization from the expensive and time consuming litigation that occurs when environmental laws are ignored or interpreted incorrectly.
