Environmental, safety and quality management increasingly play an important and complex role in the ongoing success of an organization. In recent years corporate downsizing has created a critical shortage of in-house auditing and “consulting” staff with experience in these areas.  I recognize the necessary work still needs to be performed and can be filled by outsourcing.  I have developed a teaming practice focused on providing the client with cost effective operational problem solving through environmental, quality and safety compliance, systems evaluation.

The world market has identified the use of International Organization of Standards, ISO 9000 ("Quality Systems - Model for Quality Assurance in Design, Development, Production, Installation, and Servicing"; also referred to as Q9001-2000) the family of ISO 14000 Environmental Management System Standards and OHSAS 18001 Health and Safety (H&S) as the primary management systems for clearly defining these management practices. These management systems are having profound repercussions on the way organizations perform their day-to-day operations both nationally and internationally. Also, prime service contractors and manufacturers are requiring these systems for subcontracting services and products. Organizations who embrace the ISO systems will gain competitive advantages within the U.S. and will ultimately impact how, and possibly if, companies do business internationally.

To aid clients in gaining market position I can provide:
