Premier staff has conducted environmental and health and safety compliance audits of the company’s facilities located along the Gulf Coast and in other states. As part of the annual compliance audits, environmental and health and safety compliance issues are evaluated and corrective actions proposed, where necessary, so that the company can assure its customers, investors, insurers, and Board of Directors that the company is operating in compliance with applicable environmental and health and safety laws and regulations. Typical laws/regulations against which compliance is evaluated include elements of: Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA), Federal Clean Water Act, Federal Clean Air Act, Federal Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), Oil Pollution Act of 1990 (OPA), Texas Solid Waste Disposal Regulations, and State of Texas equivalents of the aforementioned federal laws. Upon completion of the audits, a findings report is prepared per facility and presented to the company’s executive management. Based on the findings, the company’s executive management initiates corrective actions where necessary and closes out the findings by documenting the results of the corrective actions.
