The relationship between mankind and nature exists since the beginning of the humanity but it has changed a lot with the pass of time. At first, humans used the sources from nature with respect, sometimes even believing in the existence of gods and goddesses within trees and rivers. At the same time we learned new abilities and started creating cities and industries, nature started paying the prize of evolution when humans forgot about respecting the environment and all the elements in it.

The current situation

Nowadays, the situation has two parts; on the one hand we have a very developed civilization based on industry and the exploitation of the resources of the planet to reach new objectives and creations. On the other, we have a voice that raises demanding a control of this activity in order to protect the ambience and all in it, something essential for our own surveillance. This is the reason that we have some professional mechanisms to regulate and advise industries, organizations and enterprises about their activities affecting nature. One of these mechanisms are the environmental inspections.

The finality of the environmental inspections

Professionals working at laboratories specialized in environmental inspections have to work hand to hand with different industries, examining facts as the levels of pollution in air and water, and proving they are functioning following the statements of the current environmental legislation. The facilities have to balance their production according to this normative, and the inspections are necessary to analyse and report the results obtained.

To put in practice all the necessary techniques and mechanisms of these inspections, the laboratories need to accredit their are able to carry out this task according to the current regulations about environment. This accreditation allow them offering different services to the clients depending on the type of business they develop. Some of the studies will be about the state of soil and water, including surface and groundwater continental waters, among others. These ecosystems are the most liable to suffer the consequences of a bad management of an industry.

The laboratory has to guarantee the compliance of the normative and to identify and regulate all the illegal activities that put in damage the ambience. One of the major problems found on these inspections is related to the management of the waste generated by the industrial activity. Some of this waste even can significate a great risk for the environment, mainly when we are talking about dangerous materials and fluids that require a special treatment.

The main check points

  • Air Pollution Control
  • Water pollution control
  • Noise control
  • Waste management
  • Storage of Chemicals and Dangerous Goods
  • Protection of Flora, Fauna and Historical Heritage
  • Resource conservation
  • Emergency Preparedness and Response

As a environmental inspection company, you have to give stress on the above particular points.

We give our prime attention to the 1st 3 points. But the flora and fauna conservative is must important for the ecological balance. disturbance to terrestrial flora and fauna should be minimized.

Another significant point of environmental inspection is to conservation of heritage. If any historical heritage exists on site, ensure appropriate measures taken to preserve it.
