Wood Preservation

The wood preservation industry has a long history spanning over 100 years. In this competitive and mature market with tight margins, it’s critical that organizations ensure regulatory compliance and control operational and remedial risks. Despite this industry’s maturity, regulatory changes do materially impact this business. The 2008 and recent 2018 EPA risk assessment — for the pesticide re-registration of pentachlorophenol, creosote, and chromated copper arsenate (CCA) — mandated industry-wide capital improvements to mitigate workspace exposures. Whether it’s planning and implementing these mitigation efforts or developing, expanding, or closing operations, capital and strategic planning are required to ensure compliance, worker safety, and operational efficiencies.
