Modern companies and institutions can only survive by linking economic interests with legal and social requirements.
The growing stringency of labour protection and environmental legislation, increasing customer quality requirements, a stronger media interest in environmental protection, ecological consumer behaviour and rising costs resulting from legal regulations are only some of numerous arguments in favour of introducing operations management systems for energy, safety, quality and environment.
The technical consulting team of Dr. Shebl & Partner boasts many years of experience and a broad range of technical expertise. Decisions which relate to industrial environmental protection, safety engineering and quality assurance and control cannot simply be made in isolation for individual aspects such as building engineering, construction, logistics, controlling etc. Our consulting team can rely on support from in-house experts to deal with even sophisticated tasks in a holistic manner.
This background distinguishes us from a simple consulting firm and allows us to deliver even complex projects – such as environmental impact assessments (EIA) and other governmental procedures for which several specialists are needed – from one single source.
- Energy management
There are many arguments that speak in favour of an energy management system and its integration into the existing operations management system. One important reason is that it enhances ecological performance and thus results in cost savings.
- Energy Performance Certificate
Our experienced energy consultants prepare a customised Energy Performance Certificate for you and inform you about the use of alternative energy technologies to help you save resources, reduce operating costs etc.
- Legally compliant energy audits (EEffG)
Our registered energy auditors are authorised to perform external energy audits in compliance with Article 9 of the Energy Efficiency Act (EEffG). After collecting and analysing the relevant data by using modern measurement technology and outlining a detailed action plan, they submit an audit report to the monitoring agency / energy supplier. Due to our continuous support, you can also rely on us for an economic follow-up audit. This will help you save energy in the long run.
- Environmental Management Information Systems (EMIS)
All company-relevant data to be included (regulatory and legal requirements etc.) are available. On the basis of this data pool, and together with the company’s internal project manager, we check, analyse and identify the status of individual laws and ordinances and their relevance for the company.

Knowledge of and compliance with all relevant requirements is essential for a modern business. Our experts draw up a list of all regulatory and legal requirements which affect your business and develop a database-supported, customised information and audit plan.

Article 82b of the Trade Regulations requires companies to perform an audit of all facilities at maximum five-year intervals. All facilities need to be inspected to assure that they are still in the same condition as approved and also comply with all applicable laws.
- Regulatory compliance
Our experts boast many years of experience with all sorts of regulatory procedures. Continuous assistance assures that the company responds to regulatory requests in an early phase. This helps to keep unexpected and complex adaptations or modifications to a minimum and avoids unnecessary inconveniences and costs.
Our specialists support and advise you on all matters related to the complex field of occupational safety.

Pursuant to the Worker Protection Act (ASchG, §4, §5), all employers have to identify and assess any work-related risks and hazards as well as define appropriate measures to counter the identified hazards.
Measurement of workplace exposure to
– noise and vibrations
- VEXAT (explosion protection at the workplace)
The Explosive Atmospheres Ordinance (VEXAT) governs explosion protection at the workplace. This ordinance affects all companies where the use of inflammable gases, vapours, mists and dusts may lead to the creation of explosive zones. It is irrelevant in this respect whether such explosive zones may occur permanently, occasionally or rarely.
- Optical Radiation Ordinance
Fundamentals as well as a mandatory risk assessment including preventive measures to be determined. Relevant exposure to optical radiation is explained and targeted preventive measures are developed.
- Noise and Vibration Ordinance
Employers need to assess and analyse the risks resulting from noise and vibration exposure for workers and employees. These are explained in detail and targeted preventive measures are developed.
- Machine Safety Ordinance
Fundamentals of the Machine Safety Ordinance (MSV 2010) and its association to worker protection schemes. Basic instructions and documentation regarding machinery, exchangeable equipment, incomplete machinery, refurbishments and linkage, safety components, conformity assessments, and the role of harmonised standards or distribution/circulation.

The Electromagnetic Fields Directive was adopted by the Employment, Social Policy, Health and Consumer Affairs Council (EPSCO) on 20 June 2013. The deadline for the adoption of the Directive provisions into national law is 1st July 2016. Inspection and documentation procedures as well as training programmes are required to assure compliance.
