Environmental Management Systems - A Development Workshop - HS37
Discipline: Health, Safety, Environment
Duration: 5 days
Instructor(s): Mark Bowers, Christopher Dougherty, Phillip Duckett
Since its launch in 1996, more than 250,000 organizations around the world have become externally certified to ISO 14001, the leading international standard and specification for environmental management systems (EMS). This workshop provides the learning and copyright-free template documents necessary for developing and implementing an ISO 14001-based EMS for your own facility/ies. You should bring a site plan, and some process flowcharts, which will be used in a series of hands-on exercises throughout the class. You will leave the class with a developed, draft EMS manual. Arrangements for external audit by a certification body is left to the choice, convenience, and timing of the participant's organization. Of course, we cannot guarantee that you will achieve certification as we will not have been to site to verify practices there.
