To mitigate environmental risks and liabilities, environmental professionals must have a thorough understanding of the laws, regulations and rules that define what they should and should not do. Many common environmental professionals’ errors arise where they operate outside of their area of expertise, give “legal” advice, fail to understand the requisite standard of care or exacerbate environmental problems at a site. Environmental professionals can be sued or prosecuted. A finding of liability may mean paying a fine or damages, or even going to jail.
