Regulatory Compliance Audits And Why They’re Important
The last thing you want is to fail a compliance audit. Hazardous materials are a serious matter and auditors will not overlook any issue that could pose a danger. Not only will failing result in a permanent note on your record, you will receive a fine along with the costs to remedy the issue. If your business is found to be non-compliant, you may be ordered to close until you remedy the problems. Once completed, you have to wait for someone to find time to re-examine your facility.
Being prepared for your facility audit is imperative if you want to keep your business compliance record clean and prevent extra costs. While it can be expensive to ensure your facility is compliant, it is much more costly to be caught out of compliance. If you are found to be habitually non-compliant, your facility may be permanently closed. Donâ€™t wait until itâ€™s too late and you are caught red handed out of compliance. Be proactive by conducting your own audit with help from Transportation Compliance Associates.
Terminal Compliance Audit
Terminals are at great risk for falling out of compliance as they receive goods from numerous sources that may or may not be in compliance themselves. It isnâ€™t uncommon for terminals to handle hundreds of shipments on a daily basis, and it isnâ€™t beyond the realm of reason to assume among the many items, some of them are non-compliant. But since keeping the terminal in line with hazmat compliance rules is vitally important, many terminals are turning to their own auditors to ensure the materials they are handling are compliant.
While you will have well qualified employees in place, Transportation Compliance Services are able to pinpoint weak areas and discover potential compliance issues. With our comprehensive services, we offer a yearly audit to ensure your employees are adhering to hazmat regulations. We also will develop a hazmat security plan and provide an annual review to ensure your terminal employees are on track.
Additionally, we provide hazardous waste profile classification and transportation product classifications. There are many substances that seem like they present no issues, but they are actually quite hazardous, such as lithium ion batteries. We provide training to help your employees identify potential problems and get hazardous materials labeled and stored appropriately as they await shipment. We also help your business with corrective action plans along with hazmat training.
These services represent only a few of the services our company provides to help your terminal remain compliant.
