Regulatory negligence

One of the common things a consultant runs across is the employee or company representative, that doesn't take the regulations seriously. This individual ignores and puts off obvious non-compliance situations, as he has no appreciation of the consequence of his neglect. Eventually this person or the company finds its self in a serious enforcement or liability situation. (Check out enforcement page for companies that failed to follow requirements Ray Scholten, Savannah Environmental Consulting,)

Above lamp ballasts are result of lighting contractor's remodeling or lighting retrofit work at a shopping mall. He was ignorant on lamp ballast disposal requirements. He not only spent over four times more (or ~$4,000 more) on ballast disposal, but failed to handle the waste lamps per the Universal Waste Regulations. SEC can help clients determine best disposal or recycling solutions, while maintaining regulatory compliance.
