Facility Audits and Assessments
As most Canadian waste generators have realized, ownership (and potential liability) for waste can linger long after the waste has left the plant. Many waste generators have responded by implementing liability risk assessments for waste receivers. Clearly, a tremendous amount of effort is required to assemble the information necessary to complete a full liability risk assessment. In addition to permit status and technical capabilities, key issues such as environmental setting, financial wherewithal, insurance, operator competency, and closure costs are deemed vital in these risk assessments.
