Quality and accuracy are essential when it comes to EHS compliance. Working with an EHS consultant that has formal quality assurance (QA) processes in place — and that is committed to accountability in general — is a part of minimizing risk and reducing the possibility for delays and other issues in the future. By establishing and maintaining high levels of trust with our clients, we can ensure both their success and ours.
ALL4 Quality Council
ALL4 is committed to ensuring that every individual on our team is invested in, and aware of, our QA process. This involves establishing formal protocols and generating buy-in at all levels of our organization. At the heart of our ability to do this is the ALL4 Quality Council. The Quality Council is a dedicated team of professionals who oversee our QA process and arrange regular training sessions to reinforce company-wide best practices. The Quality Council also designates certain individuals as ALL4 Quality Professionals (AQPs), who are qualified to certify that ALL4’s QA process has taken place. By having a dedicated team coordinate our QA efforts, we build a more accurate and accountable organization from the ground up. For our clients, this means all our staff members have the tools they need to do their job correctly.
Our QA Process
Whether the work involves preparing permit applications, documenting monitoring results, or drafting EHS compliance reports, all our work products undergo a rigorous deliverable QA process that begins as soon as we start a new project. Here’s how it works:
- The project manager assembles a team and assigns QA staff to the project.
- QA staff members are present at the initial meetings, where they will take the time to understand the project’s objectives and technical considerations.
- Staff members work independently on deliverable components, consulting with QA team members when necessary.
- QA staff perform the first review of the deliverable components, checking them for accuracy and flagging any potential issues.
- Individual deliverable components are assembled and submitted to a senior technical expert for review.
- The project manager oversees and reviews the deliverable throughout the project.
- For significant deliverables such as permit applications and air quality modeling and monitoring reports, an AQP then performs a final review and stamps the document with the ALL4 Quality Seal to certify that the QA steps took place.
- We then present the final deliverable to the client and any other relevant stakeholders.
As you can see, our QA process involves multiple steps that ensure all our deliverables meet high standards and reflect the most recent regulatory changes.
