Environmental and Safety Support in Food Manufacturing
Liberty Environmental, Inc. (Liberty) has provided environmental and safety support to Hershey Creamery Company, manufacturer of Hershey’s Ice Cream, with headquarters in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania since 2008. Liberty has prepared environmental reports and developed environmental and safety management systems for Hershey Creamery Company’s manufacturing plant and distribution center.
The environmental reporting has included the SARA Tier II Hazardous and Chemical Inventory reports; residual and municipal waste reports; and municipal recycling reports. Environmental contingency and emergency action plans have been established and maintained for Hershey Creamery Company’s operations.
Liberty has developed and implemented environmental and safety management systems to sustain US EPA’s Risk Management and OSHA’s Process Safety Management Programs. A compliance calendar has been created to track regulatory and compliance requirements. A file system has been established to ensure documentation is accessible.
“The team at Liberty Environmental has helped us to understand our regulatory responsibilities and brought us into compliance with our Process Safety Management and Risk Management Programs, necessary because of our use of anhydrous ammonia. They developed management systems and training for our staff that are easy for everyone to understand. A valued service provider, Liberty continues to look out for our best interests while keeping us up-to-date in environmental and safety compliance.”
Liberty has also assisted Hershey Creamery Company with employee environmental and safety training programs. Training has been developed and conducted for confined space entry, lock out / tagout, emergency response and evacuation, spill plan implementation and PSM as required.
Regular facility walkthroughs and record keeping reviews are completed with Hershey Creamery Company personnel to assess compliance with environmental and safety management systems, programs and requirements.
