Helping Small Business Manage Environmental, Health and Safety Compliance Since 2003
Welcome to Berg Environmental Services and Berg Compliance Solutions. We’re here to support those who own or work for small companies struggling to keep up with the complicated OSHA, EPA and state environmental regulations that impact small business. Whether you’re being proactive or have already experienced non-compliance problems, you’ve come to the right place.
Russell Carr, Founder & Principal: “I used to own and operate a small wind energy services company. This is a photo I took of one of our technicians inspecting a wind turbine on the Columbia River Gorge in eastern Oregon several years ago. Our staff worked in very dangerous conditions with major safety hazards including working at heights up to 250 feet, near large moving parts & high voltage electricity and more.
I learned first hand how difficult and stressful managing safety can be for a small business. This included owning and operating a small oil and gas service company and a hazardous waste transportation business. Between the 3 companies, I had to answer to OSHA, EPA, TCEQ, DOT and local regulators. It was overwhelming.
In addition to my own struggles, I’ve seen many clients and competitors fall behind on their EHS compliance requirements and pay the price with serious employee injuries, regulatory fines and legal problems.
I saw one of my competitors in the wind industry get a $378,000 OSHA fine after one of their employees almost died while working on a transformer. I knew that if it happened to them, it could just as easily happen to my company if we weren’t careful.
Later I witnessed one of my own customers get sent to jail due to hazardous waste management violations, and another customer’s management team get threatened with the same after one of their employees intentionally violated their environmental permits.
These experiences and lessons-learned later inspired me to to found Berg Compliance Solutions which is dedicated to helping small businesses manage environmental, health and safety compliance and these serious related risks.”

Kit Harper, Plant Manager at Lifelast:
“I’ve had the pleasure of working with Berg Compliance Solutions to shore up our confidence in our EHS compliance. As a small company we can’t dedicate a resource to becoming an expert in this field, so partnering with Berg in this capacity has been fantastic. They have driven our compliance schedule and audits to ensure we have a safe workplace for our employees. Everyone we have engaged within Berg has been a very personable and competent individual with great leadership.
Please consider hearing from them how they could partner with you!”
Daryl Lanaville, Plant Manager at Solaris Oilfield Infrastructure:
“We initially chose to use Berg for their expertise because we believe it is not cost effective to develop that level of depth internally.”
