Regular environmental assessment through internal audits and regulatory checks ensure your environmental system is legally compliant, up to date and also that your ISO 14001 documentation and records are being properly maintained.
One of the key contributors towards the successful implementation of ISO 14001 is employee participation, awareness and training. Regular audits will consider the impact on employees and how they are using the system.
Processes can be continually improved and any risks identified that could result in an incident. The aim will be to:
Prevent pollution occurring
Meet any legal requirements of your industry sector
Improve systems to minimise risks to the environment
ISO 14001 history and near future
ISO 14001:2004 is essentially a revision to ISO 14001:1996. The revised 2004 standard clarifies clauses of the previous 1998 edition. ISO 14001:2004 has evolved from the previous ISO 14001:1996 standard which was developed from the original BS 7750 standards of 1992 and 1994.
The benefits of ISO 14001:2004 compliance are of an ethical, legal, economic and commercial nature supporting your organisation’s claim to environmental responsibility and probity.
Less focused on documentation ISO 14001:2015 shares common approaches provided in ISO 9001 with standards compliant with the annex SL, the common higher level structure for management systems.
