SCHEDULE A CALL HERE

My past experiences as a small business owner and operator of 3 industrial service companies inspired me to create Berg Compliance Solutions, LLC, which specializes in helping small companies manage environmental, health and safety regulations.

Berg Environmental Services, Inc. has been providing hazardous waste management and transportation services since August of 2003, Turn Energy Maintenance (3rd party O&M service provider to utility scale wind farms throughout the US) was founded in September 2007, Energy Vacuum Services, LLC (3rd party environmental transportation & disposal service provider to O&G industry in south Texas) was founded in August of 2011.

These businesses operated in extremely dangerous environments and exposed our employees to a wide range of significant health, safety & environmental hazards on a daily basis. My staff and I learned early and quickly the critical importance of managing EHS issues so as to ensure the well being of our employees, as well as minimizing risks associated with the businesses. I also learned first hand how difficult and challenging this endeavor can be, with so many rules and regulations to manage and struggling to ensure that our EHS programs were maintained & utilized by our field staff/operations on an ongoing and consistent basis.

As a business owner, these experiences also taught me how difficult in can be to balance these compliance & risk issues against budgetary realities, but having seen several of our competitors lose employees to serious injuries, get fined by OSHA, and several customers suffer severe consequences due to environmental compliance failures, I ultimately learned the most important lesson of all: environmental, health & safety compliance is not a discretionary option. It is a mandatory requirement for any company engaged in an industry that puts it’s employees, the environment and communities at risk.  Berg Compliance Solutions was created to help small businesses manage these responsibilities and obligations.
