Best Management Practices
Best management practices (BMPs) were introduced by the Environmental Protection Agency to prevent the release of toxic and hazardous pollutants to surface waters. Incorporating BMPs into the daily culture of workers promotes pollution prevention, which in turn helps minimize the risk for a spill or release of hazardous materials to the environment.
Environmental Insurance Coverage
Pollution incidents are costly. When you factor in cleanup and remediation costs, project delays, business interruption costs, legal costs, and reputation damage this fact becomes all the more obvious. Insurance provides coverage for and evidence of the ability to pay for cleanups and third-party damages associated with a release.
