Comprehensive Chemical Screen

Screen your chemicals to easily comply with regulations

The first and most critical step in finding what regulations affect you, relating to regulated chemicals, is to screen for them. You need to find out which ones you have and compile them in a way to show you how your quantities match up against the thresholds set for those chemicals. Then you need to continually monitor the changes in your chemical inventory along with the changes in the regulated chemical themselves.

More than 90 percent of all Environmental, Safety and now Homeland Security requirements are concerned with the chemicals that you use, store, process and ship within your facility. Most EPA, OSHA and DHS regulations require you to report, permit and/or train on; the storage, usage, handling, releases, processes, spills and exposures related to your chemical inventory. Thousands of chemicals are listed in the EPA, OSHA and DHS regulatory lists alone. These lists are changing all the time as well as your chemical inventory making it a continual challenge to keep up.

Failure to comply with some of these requirements can result in fines from $10,000 - $75,000/day/occurrence.

ESSG has provided the Chemical Inventory Analysis (CIA) services that has helped our clients cut through the red tape of regulated chemicals to find out what regulations affects them since 1993.

ESSG has developed a way to effectively track your chemical inventory that can not only allow you to have "Peace of Mind" when thinking about your chemical compliance but also improve your bottom line.

This service is designed to virtually eliminate the amount of time you would spend studying the numerous regulation as well as searching, cross-referencing and indexing your chemical inventory against the many Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) lists.

This simple and painless service provides you with vital, "site specific", information on how your facility(s) stand up against these regulatory lists and regulations. After this service is complete, it will be clear what areas of these regulations your facility(s) need to be concerned with or (better yet) have the defensible documentation to show that they don't affect you. This service is:

  • Fast - The entire process can be completed in as little as 5 business days.

  • Simple - Initially you simply provide to us copies of your (M)SDS that represents your current chemical product inventory.

  • Professional - Our staff of trained professionals enter key information from your (M)SDS into our system.

  • Systematic - We send you a form requesting product inventory information on each chemical product to show quantities, container types, areas stored and area used along with some additional general site information required for reporting.

  • Logical - After the information is received and entered into your file, ESSG's proprietary CIA software matches your inventory against the thousands of regulated and/or flagged EPA, OSHA and DHS Chemicals.

The reports show you the results of the screening of your chemical product inventory to identify/flag the product ingredients present at your facility and flag your true regulatory requirements. These findings sections and/or compliance instructions are delivered to you in your choice of hard copy or PDF format. These reports provide you with supportable documentation as well as a management tool to assess your hazards. This includes the following 26 reports complete with detailed information showing your:
