Loss Prevention Committee

  • Want to be in a room with LSPs, environmental attorneys, risk assessors and other allied practitioners to learn what they think and say about topics of interest to the practice?  
  • Do you have lessons learned about contracting, business practices and technical practice issues you would like to share with the membership?
  • Want to be able to see all of MassDEP’s Notices of Audit Findings to gauge where your practice is and how you might improve it? 
  • Are you curious about issues related to LSP Board complaints?

You need to be part of this committee.

The LSPA Loss Prevention Committee is a place for discussing important issues and trends in managing the risks that are inherent to the LSP practice. Through its review of MassDEP’s NOAFs, it identifies trends in the types of issues being identified by MassDEP, regional differences in MassDEP’s findings, and areas where LSP submittals could be improved or strengthened.

The Loss Prevention Committee meets on the third Thursday of each month, from 8am – 10am (please see schedule below).  For more information, contact the chair.
