Our Project Experience

Contaminated Land Auditing

Contaminated Land Auditing

Our contaminated land-auditing team is one of the most experienced in Australia, having been involved in the audit system since its inception in Victoria in the early 1990s. We undertake environmental audits on the suitability of land for its intended use and have successfully completed audits on sites with a wide variety of previous land uses. Always focused on the regulatory requirements and client goals, our success is demonstrated by the completion of 200+ audits over more than two decades.

EPA Notice Compliance Auditing

EPA Notice Compliance Auditing

EHS Support has significant experience with audits for compliance with the various requirements of EPA statutory notices. EPA utilises a range of notices, such as clean up notices and pollution abatement notices, where it considers that a risk to the environment or human health from contamination may exist. We’ve successfully completed numerous auditor roles in relation to EPA notices, and we pride ourselves on taking a collaborative approach to such roles.

Landfill Auditing

Landfill Auditing

Since the issues surrounding the Cranbourne landfill development in the mid-2000s, EPA has significantly ramped up its regulation of landfills. EPA requires auditor involvement in a wide range of landfill risk management processes, including auditing of landfills during their operational life. It also regulates closed landfills with containment or encroachment issues. We specialise in all aspects of landfill auditing and have worked on many operational and closed landfill sites throughout Australia.
