Environmental, Health & Safety Compliance Audit

Environmental, Health & Safety Compliance Audit

Aviation Services Company, Bangkok, Thailand

SLP Environmental was appointed by an international aviation services company to conduct an Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) compliance audit at their refueling operation located at Suvarnabhumi International Airport, Bangkok, Thailand. The client is a market leading provider of global aviation support and aftermarket services and the audited facility was engaged in the refueling of commercial aircraft on behalf of numerous major international airlines.

The primary objective of the EHS audit was to assess whether operations and activities at the facility were i) in compliance with Thailand’s HSE regulatory requirements and the clients internal best practice standards, and where non-compliances were identified, to ii) recommend corrective actions along with the associated costings, timeframes and assignment of responsibilities to rectify any non conformances.

The audit lasted two days and comprised of a visitor orientation and H&S Inductions for SLP staff followed by the opening meeting and Introductions. The EHS management team provided SLP auditors with a brief facility presentation summarising the facility operations, EHS programs and known issues or opportunities for strengthening the facility’s environmental, health and safety performance. This was followed by an orientation tour of the facility to help SLPs auditors become familiar with the layout of the facility and to identify areas of the facility which required further detailed examination.

The company’s EHS documentation was reviewed to verify that all the appropriate permits, licenses and permissions were in place for the facilities operations and that all emissions and discharges conformed with regulatory criteria. Documentation was also reviewed to assess compliance with company policies and procedures.

The audit concluded with a Close-Out Meeting for regional managers and a detailed audit report was prepared for local management & corporate headquarters.
