What we learned from auditing nearly 100 facilities
From 2015 to 2018, Antea Group audited almost 100 low-risk European facilities (offices, retail stores, and other non-manufacturing facilities) and came up with over 1,100 findings with an average of 12 findings per facility. No low-risk workplaces, even managed office and co-working spaces, were without EHS gaps and issues.
PFAS contamination of drinking water has been in the news of late. These chemicals are toxic, persistent, and subject to bioaccumulation in plants, animals, and humans. Industries that used PFAS include military, firefighting, aerospace, automotive, building and construction, and electronics, among others.
For over a decade, Antea Group has been supporting clients and working with regulators on understanding the sources and behavior of PFAS and their precursors in the environment, while maintaining strict confidentiality.
Antea Group teams have been responding to hazardous material releases since 1986, limiting disruption, mitigating risk, and returning affected assets to normal operation. Our solution to dealing with these incidents encompasses offering support in transitioning a situation from initial emergency response into a more proactive and data-driven long-term plan for resolution.

“….luck is really an acronym: Laboring Under Certain Knowledge..” Bob Karls was still in college when he had the “luck” to fall into a summer assistant position that would shape his career in hydrogeology.
He is still inspired by the possibility that his work can provide solutions to the water supply impacts of a single family or half a million people. He is excited about passing the baton because “the individual is unlikely to achieve success individually” in this field.
EHS professionals everywhere shed a few tears during the nine-season run of “The Office”, mostly from laughter, but perhaps also because of the blatant disregard shown for the health and safety of the Dunder Mifflin employees and workspaces.
