Drive proactive EHS management

Managing the environment, as well as health and safety, is not easy. Stakeholders, financial markets and society at large have become more demanding and the penalties for poor performance are increasingly severe. Our experienced multi-disciplinary team helps you think and act proactively - to implement long-term solutions that improve performance and ensure compliance.

Management Systems

Your organization is unique. We know that off-the-shelf management systems cannot meet the needs of every organization. That’s why we use a “customized” approach to management system development and implementation. Using proven processes and techniques we work with your team to build a system that reflects how your organization works. Our track record speaks for itself. We have planned, developed and implemented stand-alone or integrated EHS management systems for upstream, midstream and downstream oil and gas companies, power companies, municipal governments, land developers, police services, agri-business and others.

Our goal is to help you manage waste in accordance with applicable rules and regulations, and reduce cost. Cirrus has the experience and proven ability to develop waste management plans specific to an organization, or tailor-made for a site or group of sites. We can help you implement effective waste strategies based on the “3Rs” - reduction, reuse/recovery and recycling, and as a last resort, cost effective disposal. From cradle to grave, we know waste.

Emergency Management Systems

While many organizations only focus on emergency response, we recognize that an effective emergency management system requires action before, during and after an incident has occurred - including measures for prevention, preparedness, response and recovery. In our experience, it is the investment in prevention and preparedness measures that pay the greatest dividends. We can help you to think ahead and use our experience gained from developing and implementing emergency management systems and helping clients respond to emergencies. Our area of expertise include:

  • Emergency life-cycle analysis and impact
  • Emergency Response Plans (ERP) that conform to CSA Standards and ERCB Directives
  • ERP risk-assessment
