Environmental Management System (EMS) is part of a management
system of an organization in which specific competencies, behaviors, procedures
and demands for the implementation of an operational environmental policy
of the organization are defined.
Organizations of all kinds are increasingly concerned with achieving
and demonstrating sound environmental performance by controlling the impacts
of their activities, products and services on the environment, consistent
with their environmental policy and objectives. They do so in the context
of increasingly stringent legislation, the development of economic policies
and other measures that foster environmental protection, and increased
concern expressed by interested parties about environmental matters and
Many organizations have undertaken environmental "reviews"
or "audits" to assess their environmental performance. On their
own, however, these "reviews" and "audits" may not
be sufficient to provide an organization with the assurance that its performance
not only meets, but will continue to meet, its legal and policy requirements.
To be effective, they need to be conducted within a structured management
system that is integrated within the organization.
ISO 14001 Standard covering environmental management are intended to
provide organizations with the elements of an effective environmental
management system (EMS) that can be integrated with other management requirements
and help organizations achieve environmental and economic goals. This
International Standard specifies requirements for an environmental management
system to enable an organization to develop and implement a policy and
objectives which take into account legal requirements and information
about significant environmental aspects. It is intended to apply to all
types and sizes of organization and to accommodate diverse geographical,
cultural and social conditions.
AWARENESS, IMPLICATION &
INTERPRETATION OF EMS ISO 14001:2004 (1 Day)
Today, environmental issues are getting greater attention in our society.
This is indicative of increasing public interest and concern on theses
phenomena. Environmental awareness is timely as seemingly far-off
problems of forest destruction, air and water degradation have far-reaching
and widespread impact on public health and safety. Who can deny
that haze, floods and structure collapse do not affect us! Therefore,
industries are encouraged to implement an effective environmental
management system based on ISO 14001:2004 standard to reduce the environmental
impacts and negative publicity. The overall aim of this standard is
to support environmental protection and prevention of pollution in
balance with socio-economic needs.
