Chemical spills, fires, transportation accidents and contamination due to natural or man-made disasters present unique challenges to clients. These incidents force changes in schedules and disrupt normal business activities; worse yet, they distract you from focusing on your typical responsibilities.
To further complicate matters, the "typical" environmental consultant and/or under-qualified (or overzealous) emergency response contractor often does not readily recognize or adapt to the unique challenges posed by these projects.
Emergency and Disaster Response Management is a primary service provided by Highlands Environmental Solutions. We possess a wealth of experience in selecting the best approach and/or technique to effectively handle each situation. With our One-Call Incident Management System, we can serve as your representative to eliminate the chaos, reduce cost, and allow you to return to your primary business responsibilities while minimizing your liability exposure.
