At AMS Group, Safety is our top priority and we are proud of our stellar safety record to date.
As a part of our HS&E programming, we maintain a safe and healthy work environment through
diligent application of standard health and safety procedures that comply with the Code of
Federal Regulations per 29 CFR 1910
Federal regulations, environmental awareness, and on-the-job safety are an integral part of our
safety-training efforts. We conduct in house ongoing safety training, division safety meetings,
project specific job-safety analysis and daily job walks. Established protocols for protection,
safety and control are enforced at each job site. All AMS Group field personnel receive OSHA
training tailored to meet or exceed site-specific requirements, such as OSHA 10 and OSHA
Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response (HAZWOPER) certification.
Being environmentally and safety conscience, AMS Group has developed proprietary specialty
contractor decommissioning techniques. This includes eliminating fire hazards and avoiding
lead exposure during our processing of all non hazardous oil filled equipment.
It is essential to remain proactive in the area of safety, which is reflected in the unwavering
quality of work provided to our clients.
The operations of AMS Group comply with all federal and state environment laws and
regulations as specified below.
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
PCB Commercial Storage and Decontamination Permit.
Texas Department of State Health Services (Texas DSHS)
Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ)
• Used Oil Handler Permit ID # TXR000081501
Petroleum Storage Tanks (PSTs): our facility maintains PSTs that hold fewer than 1100 Gal. ea.
Air Permits – our Houston, TX facility does not process material for combustion and therefore
Air permitting is not required.
Storm Water Permit: The City of Houston requires an annually renewable Storm Water Quality
permit for any new development of an undeveloped parcel of land five acres or larger, or
significant redevelopment of changes of one acre or more to the impervious surface. AMS
corporate facility is on a half acre of land, this eliminating this permitting requirement.
For additional information and compliance with the MS4 permit, see the City Ord. No. 01-800
(Code of Ordinance Chapter 47 Article 12) adopted in 2001
