After an initial lull due to the Covid pandemic, enforcement agencies are resuming both in-person and virtual inspections, as well as penalty actions. Business staffing shortages continue to make compliance, record keeping, reporting, and facility upgrades a challenge.
As regulatory programs continue to age, agency inspectors are diving into more detail with each inspection. Just because it wasn't mentioned before doesn't mean it's not going to be mentioned now. Storm water, air, and hazardous materials inspections continue to get more detailed and more nuanced.
Now is the time to optimize programs and get data collection and records organized, automated and shifted to the cloud wherever possible. Facility and operational modifications may help avoid cumbersome requirements if done right. Businesses need every efficiency to stay ahead of regulatory challenges. Contact us if you need ideas!
