Developing Operation and Maintenance Programs and Manuals

EnviroForensics staff members have extensive experience in the development of Operation and Maintenance Programs and associated program manuals. Working with equipment vendors and a client’s Operation and Maintenance staff, EnviroForensics develops a practical user-friendly program to keep the system in optimal performance while meeting strict regulatory guidelines. Manuals typically contain information on normal operations, abnormal conditions, special conditions and emergency response procedures.

Advisory and Training

Advisory and Training services are identified at the conception of each project and are implemented during the design and construction phases. On-going monitoring and auditing services continually evaluate the effectiveness of Operation and Maintenance programs. Monitoring can begin on a continuous basis then decrease to routine technical and management audit visits scheduled at agreed upon intervals for reporting requirements and system optimization. Staff members coordinate and conduct Training for client management and staff personnel. Training covers system maintenance activities and milestones so that personnel understand all system components and operational aspects of the program. Throughout the program implementation, EnviroForensics engineers work alongside client personnel in order to successfully achieve the program objectives and goals. Engineers also train client personnel in environmental and permitting requirements including health and safety measures, risk management planning, and emergency responses.
