Environmental Compliance 

Spectrum provides broad-based environmental compliance services to both industry and public sector clients.  Environmental regulations provide environmental compliance requirements covering the environmental media of air, land, and water.  These environmental regulations have applicable emission limits, monitoring, reporting, and recordkeeping requirements.  Spectrum provides services associated with meeting these requirements to assure you facility stays in compliance with all applicable regulatory requirements.  Spectrum services include GIS database development, spECTrac environmental compliance tracking software, multi-media environmental compliance audits, regulatory analysis and expert advisement, onsite and offsite environmental program support, and environmental training.  Provided below is a discussion of each of specific Spectrum’s environmental compliance services areas.

spECTrac

 

Spectrum has created a custom environmental compliance tracking database called spECTrac®, which utilizes Microsoft® Access and Microsoft® Outlook.  spECTrac® manages compliance information and schedule adherence at single or multiple locations through a simple to use, personalized, interactive, and user-friendly database customized to your regulatory and permitting specifications.

 

spECTrac® is designed to be a tool used by Corporate Upper Management and Facility Environmental Managers.  It can provide Corporate Environmental and Facility Environmental Managers with emailed notifications and reports of upcoming and missed tasks and help facilities avoid Federal and State violations.  spECTrac® can provide a critical component for the compliance elements of an EMS, but is also adaptable to meet both Environmental and Safety Tracking Requirements.  spECTrac® is PC based and can be customized to fit each client’s specify needs while still being cost effective.  Spectrum also provides on-site installation, personalized user training, and a guided user manual. 

 

Spectrum works with our clients to help define all applicable reporting, recordkeeping, and monitoring requirements from existing environmental permits.  Spectrum also reviews all Federal, State, and local environmental regulations to ensure a complete and accurate list of regulatory requirements.  Spectrum populates the system to provide quality assurance and has on-call support available after the installation is completed.
