Documentation plays an important part of a Environmental Management System (EMS). We can help you with every level of documentation.

  • We can write the documents for you.
  • We can provide templates so you can write them on your own.
  • We can review your current documentation for compliance
  • We can review your current documentation for opportunities for improvement.

Documentation requirements are usually divided in four Tiers:

  • Environmental Policy and Quality Manual
  • Environmental System Procedures
  • Work/Job Instructions
  • Quality Records

What is an Environmental Manual?
An Environmental Manual is the statement of the organization’s Environmental policy and describing the EMS of an organization. It is usually written by managers from top level management and the Environmental department.

What is a Procedure?
Procedures define activities at the departmental level and written by department supervisors. They are usually referred to in a Environmental system, as a “written” procedure or a “documented” procedure. Procedures should ideally be organized into the ISO 14001 outline structure, indicating the ISO 14001 clause under which they fall, though is not an ISO 14001 requirement.

What is a Work Instruction?
Work instructions describe how work is accomplished, it is 100% of how to complete a specific task or operation, and are usually written by the operators and trainers.

What are Records?
Quality records provide the backbone of the EMS.

EMS records consist of all forms, or controlled documents and records (hard copy and electronic) necessary for the quality system to operate. EMS records usually consist of all completed forms and charts

We will conduct a third party assessment/audit (gap analysis) of your existing Environmental Management System (EMS) which will determine the level of compliance of your facility to EMS standards such as ISO 14001.

We will conduct an assessment on the current EMS and general condition of the company. This will include interviewing key personnel in each department or area. For example, this may include the management team, team leaders, supervisors, office staff, operators, etc…

The assessment will entail the investigation and assessment of existing EMS elements as they apply to the applicable standard.

It is a comprehensive review of a company’s EMS and procedures. Non-compliance’s to the standard are noted, and a report issued.

It will also include some general questions to determine the overall condition of the company. For example, questions to determine some of the strengths and weaknesses (opportunities for improvement) of the organization. This will help us identify any barriers that may prevent you from obtaining your goal of Registration.

The responses will be summarized and reports will be issued (including recommendations) and reviewed with the management team.

The information gathered here will be used to develop your implementation and action plans.

Again, our auditors will provide you with a detailed written report and recommendations for improvements.

Need assessment is an ideal way to start a EMS implementation program or to ensure your company is in the position to successfully pass a registration audit
