Harris County requires that an operational permit for certain facilities is obtained prior to beginning operations for which a permit is required. The permits ensure that the County has necessary information to safeguard the county from the risks associated with high hazard occupancy. These permits are issued for operations set forth in Sections 105.6.1 through 105.6.50 of the Harris County Fire Code.
Harris County issued a new Hazardous Material (HAZMAT) operating permit, effective January 1, 2020. All new and existing facilities located in Harris County will be required to apply for a HAZMAT permit if they store, transport on-site, dispense or handle hazardous materials in quantities greater than those listed in Table 105.6.20. These permits are required to be renewed annually. If you have any questions, or need further information please contact Vidhi Singhal at (281) 501‑6100 or firstname.lastname@example.org. #HAZMAT #compliance #ESEpartners
Did you know that there is a way for an individual/corporation to identify areas of non-compliance within their own facility and/or specific facility operations and receive immunity from administrative and civil penalties that would otherwise be associated with non-compliance? The Texas Environmental, Health and Safety Audit Privilege Act (Audit Act), first established by House Bill 2473 in 1995, provides incentives for individuals/corporations (“persons”) to conduct voluntary self-audits of their facilities and/or specific operations and implement prompt corrective action where violations are identified. The incentives provided by the Audit Act include immunity from administrative and civil penalties as well as limited evidentiary privilege for certain information gathered during the voluntary self-audit. However, in order to be eligible for the immunity provisions, the individual/corporation must follow the process described in the Audit Act.
Did you know the current Multi-Sector General Permit (MSGP) is set to expire in August of 2021? The TCEQ held a public stakeholder meeting in October of 2019 regarding the renewal of the MSGP TXR050000 and proposed updates to the monitoring and reporting requirements for DMRs, select benchmark values, NOI and NOC items, and other sector-specific changes.
