Many projects in the engineering and mining industry can, if poorly managed, have long-term impacts on workplace health and the environment. Thus, it is crucial to assess these environmental risks and threats to the health and safety of employees during feasibility studies as well as during the execution of a project in the form of regular safety audits to identify risks and develop action plans to ensure compliance with local and international regulations and competently manage these risks.
DMT conducts assessments of the environmental impact (EIA) and environmental risks and the hazards that industrial chemicals, wastewater and other materials can cause to health and safety as well as audits for many different projects.
Our expertise and resources embrace every aspect of health, safety and environmental problem solving in relation to working conditions, land, water and airborne pollution. We provide a comprehensive range of services to ensure that our clients are able to identify and manage their environmental risks throughout the project life cycle. We offer initial environmental investigations and planning, environmental compatibility checks as part of the approvals process for mining projects, environmental impact assessments, environmental audits and management studies, as well as remediation and rehabilitation strategies for polluted sites. We naturally also cooperate with local consultants and supply management and quality assurance as required.
