Bechtel's Environmental, Safety & Health Management System is a systematic and process-driven approach to controlling aspects of business that have a significant impact on the environment as well as worker safety and health. The certifications process involved a two-tier audit for multiple office locations to verify the creation and execution of an effective management system.
