Self-Monitoring Manuals

Self-Monitoring (SM) is a process that relates to measurements of process inputs, releases and environmental pollution levels, as well as process conditions (operation controls) that are directly related to the monitored emissions. SM is usually based on a plan for sampling, measurements and monitoring the trends of the considered parameters.

Register of Environmental Conditions

Building a register of environmental conditions is the first step in establishing an environmental management system, which is highly valued especially by international clients.
Keeping good track of material balance, emissions and environmental impacts and legal requirements allows the management to identify the priority actions and gain respect of the local community and business partners.


Environmental Compliance

The need was created after the enforcement of law 4/94 for a guideline towards compliance with the environmental laws.


Abatement of Dust Pollution from Industry

The manual describe the effect of the dust pollution and its major sources and also cover the dust abatement procedures and finally describe the dust abatement equipment and measurement equipment.


Chemical Risk Management in Industry

Chemical substances are used in almost every industrial workplace. Use, storage, transport and disposal of chemicals and chemical waste are sources of risk to the health of workers and the environment. For the majority of chemicals used in the workplace, little or nothing is known about their possible immediate or long-term health effects. Yet workers continue to be required to work with potentially toxic (poisonous) substances. The owner of the facility is responsible of taking necessary actions to identify the risks and to minimize them as much as possible. Personal protective devices are to be used only if exposure to chemicals can not be avoided by any other means.

Hazardous Waste Management

Hazardous Waste Management is currently a priority issue in Egypt. Law 4/1994 for the Environment and its Executive regulations specify the necessary measures to be implemented to ensure the proper management of such waste. This information sheet aims at helping the Egyptian industries to identify their hazardous waste and assist them to comply with the law requirements.
