Every business has some impact on the environment, and as the world becomes more aware of environmental issues, we are expected to manage our impacts better. Many customers are beginning to require their suppliers to have a certified management system based on ISO 14001. That's now easier to achieve than ever before! Enviro Toolkit will help you understand the requirements of the ISO14001 standard, then plan, document and implement your EMS (Environmental Management System).
Your system will provide a solid foundation for addressing legislative and other requirements. It may also be used as the basis of an integrated management system - covering other compliance issues such as OHS and Quality.
New version! based on the latest ISO 14001:2015 standard.
Improve your understanding of ISO 14001
The first step towards developing your system is to have a clear understanding of environmental management, and the requirements of the ISO 14001 standard. Fortunately, Enviro Toolkit has a comprehensive environmental eBook that explains the subject matter, how to develop your system, the tools and techniques to use, and traps to avoid. It includes a chapter on the requirements of each clause in the standard - each has a summary, a discussion, references to relevant compliance standards, a case study, an activity plan, and links to the huge library of sample documents and other tools. The Help file provides guidance on using MS Word and customising documents. A series of training presentations help you to learn about various aspects of environmental management.
Plan with confidence
To successfully develop a system within a reasonable timeframe requires the required tasks need to be identified and planned methodically. Enviro Toolkit provides the tools for the job, including:
- Gap Analysis chart - a detailed checklist to self-assess how your organisation measures up to ISO 14001
- System project plan - to help you set a timeframe, allocate responsibility, and manage the development of your EMS
Save time documenting your system
You need to meet the ISO standard's mandatory requirements for documentation - while other documents are optional.
Enviro Toolkit includes a massive library of sample documents for you to choose from. These are designed by qualified and experienced auditors, and have been proven in the real world hundreds of times over. What's more, they are ready for easy customizing using your familiar word processor!
Samples include all the policy and procedure documents needed to meet the mandatory requirements of ISO 14001, plus much more.
Put it into practice
Your system needs to be implemented and checked or verified that it is working effectively.
Forms and checklists help to prompt action, and are essential to record what took place - so your EMS starts to become part of the everyday method of work.
