Importance of Environment Impact Assessmenet

In the movie Erin Brockovich, the character of Julia Roberts was neck-deep in investigation about the suspicious activities of Pacific Gas and Electric Company, which led to the eventual poisoning and death of the residents nearby the area. After going through a series of unproductive meetings among lawyers, residents and owners the company was soon charged of buying a piece of land that was already contaminated. So what does the movie have to do with you, you ask? It tells you that you can avoid this situation by getting an Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) for your subject property.

Of course, nobody wants his company to undergo the same mishaps as seen in the movie. Court trials are time consuming and litigation lawyers charge too expensively that you just want to settle things under the table. Plus a suspicious site would lessen its credibility and drive people away from it.

Naturally, you would want to retain the value of your property and not get into any kind of legal trouble of any sort. You can do this through Environmental Site Assessment via environmental laboratories. Some of you, like me, are probably still wondering what this program can do for your company. Through Phase 1 ESA, you can rest assured that your property is free from potential environmental liabilities like toxicity or contamination. Professional consultants will determine whether the land you own or are planning to buy is a potential environmental threat because, or what are better known as “brownfield sites”.

In the 1970s, a similar study was done in the United States to inspect commercial properties and to test them whether they are potentially hazardous to health. Now, the US has stricter monitoring than ever when it comes to environmental issues. Before you could actually have an acquisition or a management buy-out, you need to abide first by the environmental due diligence-a kind of investigation which identifies environmental hazards. It will give you details on how a former or a current operation poses a potential risk for your employees and nearby residents.

The inspection will tell you in detail the history of the chosen property, how the former operations contributed to possible environmental hazards, and how you could verify legal compliance from regulation authorities.

Tests are conducted by industrial hygiene consultants. These professionals see to it that every nook and cranny of your would-be land acquisition is scrutinized, looking for loopholes such that lead to toxicological risks. A property condition assessment is done to check whether if the health and safety requirements mandated by the State are met. Industrial hygiene consultants perform samplings and assessments, all of which are then turned over to an accredited laboratory for further evaluation. They also see to it that investigations, which include an expert witness testimony and an assessment of workers compensations claims, are done in a discreet and professional manner.

Aside from industrial hygiene consultants, you may also seek help from other companies on environmental engineering services. The services included on this one are feasibility studies, construction oversight, waste management consultation and other facility design services. You can address the underlying issues of pollution or contamination through environmental remediation.

 

Factors to Consider For Choosing Outdoor furniture in Kuala Lumpur

Whether you are looking for a quiet place to relax or planning an outdoor party for guests, you’ll want to provide outdoor furniture for comfortable seating and dining. Choosing the best patio or garden furniture is not always easy, though, because not all outdoor furniture is made alike. Here are some tips to help you make your decision:

The Best Features of Outdoor Furniture Kuala Lumpur

Before swiping that credit card, consider whether the outdoor furniture you are purchasing for you deck, patio, or garden has these key features:

    • Style- Choosing a piece, or an entire set, of patio furniture is a highly personal decision. Don’t settle for a cookie-cutter look or boring, plastic chairs. Instead, use the same sense of creativity and style that you did when decorating the inside of your home. Choose outdoor furniture that reflects who you are.

 

    • Comfort- One of the most important features of any piece of furniture is comfort. If you aren’t going to enjoy lounging by the pool, what is the point in buying the furniture? Ergonomically correct seating and chaise lounges will increase the comfort and add to the value of your seating.

 

    • Weather Resistant- Another important factor when choosing any type of outdoor furniture is how it will handle the weather. You will most likely need to store cushions and pillows while you are not using them, and during inclement weather, but what about the furniture frame itself? See if the material used can stand up to rain, snow, and even the scorching sun.

 

  • Easy to Clean- The best type of furniture for the outdoors is easy to clean and nonporous. Synthetic wicker is an excellent choice as it will not promote mould growth or stain. Most of the time, you will only need to use mild soapy water to clean your furniture. You should be able to rinse it off with a garden hose. Your yard and deck are going to get dirty whether you live in a big city or a rural area, so cleaning up your furniture should be a easy and convenient.

Other Important Factors to Consider

When you are ready to purchase the perfect outdoor pieces of furniture, you should also consider the area where you will be placing the furniture. Will the furniture be a small part of the outdoor living area or cover the entire deck? The best seating for larger areas are sectionals. Outdoor sectionals can be purchased in pieces and you are free to add on at any time. Having the freedom and versatility to expand your set is smart planning.

Another consideration is storage. An outdoor storage bench that will allow you to protect all of your cushions, pillows, and blankets while you are not using them will keep them looking like new.

Outdoor furniture can be a great addition to your deck or patio, but make sure you purchase pieces that suit your needs and have the best features.
