The key to an effective OH&S or Energy Management System is designing the Management Processes for efficiency and ease of use. The processes must be carefully thought out, well-organized, and carefully designed to work together to lead your organization to continual improvement. The Environmental standard revised in the year 2015 is compatible with the year 2018 revision of the Energy standard. The standards have identical structures and have similar management system concepts and basic requirements. The Environmental and Energy management systems can be combined, integrated and implemented to save you time and money. Fundamentally, from an environmental viewpoint, it is everyone’s job to protect the environment by preventing pollution and continually improving the air you breathe, the water you drink, and the land you inhabit. Fundamentally, from a Energy standpoint, a commitment to conserving energy is everyone’s job.
To inform your people on an implementation project and to educate them on what is required to meet the objectives of the Environmental Management System (EMS), and the Energy Management System (EnMS) as an Integrated Management System (IMS), our standards experts have prepared a 54-slide power-point presentation. The presentation covers the similarities and differences in:
- Management Systems
What is ISO 14001 / What is IS0 50001?
- Combining the management systems
Advantages / Disadvantages Benefits of ISO 14001 / ISO 50001
- Comparing ISO 14001 / ISO 50001
Clause 4 through Clause 10
- Integrating ISO 14001:2015, and ISO 50001:2018
