Our comprehensive services are designed to assist you in complying with regulatory requirements, developing robust risk management plans, and implementing effective protocols.

What is a Risk Management Program and why is it necessary?

In accordance with the Clean Air Act Amendment of 1990, Section 112(r), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) mandates facilities producing, handling, processing, distributing, or storing certain chemicals to establish and maintain a Risk Management Plan (RMP). The RMP aims to prevent accidents and releases, protecting the surrounding community and minimizing potential harm.

At Cognascents, we recognize the significance of an RMP in ensuring the safety and integrity of your operations. Our team works closely with you to develop, implement, and sustain a comprehensive risk management plan tailored to your facility’s specific requirements. By actively identifying hazards, assessing risks, and establishing appropriate protocols, you can confidently navigate regulatory compliance while prioritizing the safety of your employees, stakeholders, and the environment.
