MAA Conducts Inaugural Environmental Audit

In the spirit of continuous improvement, the MAA Environmental Committee has begun conducting peer environmental audits of member facilities.  As part of these audits, committee members conduct a walk thru of various aspects of the producer’s operations including their lab, quarry mining operations, crushing and screening operations, oil storage building, garage, etc.  In each area there is a focus on air quality, oil storage/spill control, trash, housekeeping and water quality.

This past week, the first environmental audit was conducted at Great Lakes Aggregates – Sylvania Facility.  A big thanks to Great Lakes Aggregates for allowing the committee into their operations and helping us build and develop this valuable MAA service.

If you are interested in having an Environmental audit of one of your facilities, please contact the MAA Office.
