Frank B. Friedman & Associates, LLC, is an environmental, health, safety and risk management consulting firm based in Chevy Chase, Maryland. We offer diverse services to improve your management processes and assist in assuring compliance with laws and regulations.
It is important to find a consultant that is sensitive to your needs and will supply the appropriate expertise. Some consulting firms offer the services of particular individuals who are subsequently not available. Others are not sensitive to operational issues. When you hire me, you get my services. In essence, "what you see is what you get." My broad experience inside corporations and as part of senior management also makes my work and cost effectiveness sensitive to client needs.
Through my associates, as well as relationships with other firms, I can also bring as wide a variety of expertise as may be necessary for the job.
We view each consulting engagement as unique. While we take advantage of our broad ranged experience, we do not engage in a "cookie cutter" approach. We examine what will work for each individual client and the client's culture and tailor our advice and products to meet those needs.
The following articles will also give a clear picture of our philosophy and approach:

2. Teaching the Business Case, 31 Environmental Forum 34 (November/December 2014). This article describes how environmental, health, and safety managers must educate their companies that if a firm addresses only compliance, it has an incomplete EHS system. But if it has a risk-based regime integrated into the corporate culture, compliance and greater profitability, will follow. See link below.
3. Environmental Management Systems-Managing Cost Effectively While Assuring Compliance, 10 Corporate Environmental Strategies, 2-117 (June 2003).This article addresses how and why EHS management systems work or do not work, what is needed for successful systems, and what managers, in house and outside counsel can do to improve the odds.
