Site Safety & Quality Assurance

Excel has an excellent safety record because of the daily, routine health and safety practices it has developed over years of environmental investigation and remediation experience.

For every project with a fieldwork component, Excel prepares a site-specific Health and Safety Plan (HASP) as necessary for compliance with applicable provisions of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) 1910.120 regulations for onsite worker and on and offsite community safety.

We have HASPs for routine construction safety issues as well as more complex tasks, such as soil excavation and use of innovative remedial action technologies that involve hazardous chemicals. Each of our HASPs are routinely updated to conform to changes in OSHA regulations and industry practices.

We are skilled and experienced in the design and implementation of site-specific and community air monitoring plans for real-time and confirmation laboratory analysis of air samples for organic and inorganic contaminants, particulates and radionuclides.

Our HASPs address all aspects of remedial action, including heavy equipment operation and safety and emergency plans and procedures.

For every single project, Excel utilizes a QA/QC method for checking the accuracy of tabulated data, calculations and technical documents referred to as the “Checkprint Process.” It’s been used since the firm’s inception and has contributed to our ability to provide high quality products and services on a consistent basis.

Excel incorporates QA/QC measures into every project. When required, we have prepared and implemented Quality Assurance Project Plans (QAPP) that establish the project-specific QA objectives and outline the specific QA/QC methods and procedures to be followed for sample collection, field analyses, laboratory analyses, data reduction and validation, and for calculations.
