Hazardous Materials Communication Programs: A Necessity for Today’s Industries
In today’s industrial landscape, the handling, storage, and disposal of hazardous materials are governed by a myriad of regulations. Non-compliance can lead to severe penalties, damage to reputation, and even business closure. That’s why our Hazardous Materials Communication Programs are designed to ensure your business is always in compliance with all relevant regulations.
Our hazmat programs are tailored to your specific needs, ensuring that your employees are well-informed about the hazardous materials they may encounter in their work environment. We believe that effective communication is the key to life safety, and our hazmat programs are designed to ensure that everyone in your organization understands their role in maintaining a safe and regulatory compliant workplace.
Comprehensive Consulting Services for Complete Compliance
Our services extend beyond just communication programs. We also offer a range of services designed to ensure your business is fully compliant with all environmental regulations.
Fire Code Compliance
With later adoptions to the International Fire Code (IFC), many municipalities and local agencies are now taking advantage of enforceable permits and their associated fees which puts the burden on local businesses to now comply.
We understand the importance of fire code compliance in maintaining a safe workplace as well as meeting local IFC regulations. Our team of experts will work with you to ensure your facility meets all fire code requirements, and implement adequate fire protection procedures, effectively reducing the risk of fire-related incidents.
High Piled Storage Permits and Occupancy Permits
Whether you’re storing hazardous materials or simply operating a business, you’ll need the appropriate permits. We handle the process of obtaining high-piled storage permits and occupancy permits, ensuring your operations are fully compliant.
- High-piled permits for storage of palletized goods at or above 6 feet and for those commodities stored in designated racking 12 feet or over.
- Additional local operational permits may be required for the storage and handling of any hazardous rating class commodity. A full inventory determination will be performed to help identify any needs.
Understanding the classification of your commodities and hazmat is crucial for regulatory compliance. Our team will help you accurately classify your commodities, ensuring you meet all regulatory requirements.
Code Compliant Layout
We work with you to ensure your facility’s layout is code compliant. This includes reviewing your current layout and making necessary adjustments to meet compliance standards.
Plans Development and Submission
Our team handles the development and submission of plans for your facility. We monitor for any required comments and recommended corrections, print and deliver the approved plans, and review them to ensure everything matches.
During our assessment, our team of hazmat consultants will identify any potential current issues. We will be by your side the entire process to help facilitate communications and requests from local agencies & municipalities.
Before beginning any facility inspection, we perform a pre-inspection walk-through to identify any potential issues and suggest recommendations to provide the best chances for success.
General Contracting Services
If needed, we provide general contracting services to handle any compliance requirements. This includes making necessary adjustments to your facility to ensure compliance while partnering with industry-standard vendors, fire service professionals, and local municipalities.
On-Site Support During Inspections
As with many of the services we offer, World Environmental provides full turnkey products. From pre- to post-inspection assistance, we act as your liaison between the fire marshal and local facility.
Our team will procure all the necessary documentation for you and assist you with your operational permit needs. This includes but not limited to an on-site presence with the fire marshal during inspections to ensure everything goes smoothly.

We meticulously inspect every corner of your facility, from storage areas to production lines, ensuring that all hazardous materials are accounted for. Our detailed hazmat reports provide a clear picture of your current situation, allowing you to make informed decisions about risk management and compliance. This comprehensive approach ensures that your business has a complete and accurate record of all hazardous materials on site.
