Introduction


The Department
of Planning,
Transport & Infrastructure

(
DPTI
) is committed to develop
and manage:



a

transport system in harmony with the en
vironment



DPTI

contributes to the well being of the community by enhancing our environment:



minimising pollution



sustaining eco
-
systems



conserving our cultural heritage



enhancing the amenity.

In addition,
DPTI
’s Environment Strategic Plan provides direct
ion and reflects the
responsibilities
DPTI

has for the protection and enhancement of the environment.


Best practice environmental management in all areas of construction will assist in
achieving this goal.


DPTI

is committed to the implementation and mana
gement of environmental practices,
which not only fully comply with statutory and regulatory requirements but also achieve
environmental best practice.


This commitment is demonstrated by the development of this document in conjunction
with the:



Environmen
tal Code of Practice for Construction
-

Road,
Rail

and Marine Facilities



Contractor’s
Environmental Management Plan Guidelines for Construction Road,
Rail

and Marine Facilities



Environmental Audit Guidelines for Construction
-

Road,
Rail

and Marine Facilit
ies



Master Specification Environmental Clauses.


The above documents provide the basis of an environmental management system for
projects, which enable the key elements of the Environment Strategic Plan to be achieved
on
DPTI

construction sites.


The South

Australian Planning Strategy focuses on integrating economic, social and
environmental goals, with sustainable use of natural resources, as an essential goal of
economic development. In addition there is an increasing range of legislation in place
protect
ing the environment. In particular, the
Environment Protection Act

1993

places a
“duty of care” on individuals and organisations.

Under this Act directors and managers can be held strictly and personally liable for the
activities of their organisation. I
t is, however, a defence under the Act if proper workplace
systems and procedures to protect the environment are in place and actively promoted.


Due diligence can be demonstrated by taking all reasonable and practical measures to
discharge the “duty of ca
re” for environmental compliance including:




being aware of environmental risks



instituting and maintaining a system for environmental compliance



supervising those responsible for managing the system



reacting to incidents or system failures by amending and

improving the



management system.

As such, a growing number of organisations are implementing environmental
management systems (EMS).

1.2

Environmental Management Systems

An EMS provides the means to identify, manage and monitor environmental risk. Such
syste
ms focus on environmental protection, resource management, and continuous
improvement in environmental performance and provide the means to demonstrate
ongoing environmental compliance. The basic elements of an EMS as outlined in the
Australian Standard (A
S/NZS ISO 14000) series include:




Environmental Policy
: An organisation should define its environmental policy and
ensure commitment to its EMS.




Planning
: An organisation should formulate a plan to fulfil its environmental policy,
including the identifi
cation and management of environmental risk.




Implementation and Operation
: For effective implementation an organisation should
develop the capabilities and support mechanisms necessary to achieve its
environmental policy, objectives and targets.




Checking

and Corrective Action
: An organisation should measure, monitor, report
and evaluate its environmental performance.




Management Review
: An organisation should review and continually improve its
environmental management system with the objective of improvin
g its overall
environmental performance.

ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGE
MENT PLANNING

2.1

DPTI
’s Environmental Impact Assessment and Management Process


Transport infrastructure projects managed by
DPTI

are assessed for environmental impact
in accordance with
DPTI
’s En
vironmental Impact Assessment (EIA) procedures.
Environmental clearance is given by the Senior Environmental Management Officer.


Environmental impacts and mitigation measures are documented during the project
planning phase in the Working Report and Concl
uding Report for major projects, and in
the
Environmental Impact Assessment Report

(EIAR) for minor projects.


Projects of major social, economic or environmental importance may require external
approval in the form of an Environmental Impact Statement (EI
S) or a Public
Environmental Report (PER) under the South Australian
Development Act, 1993
. In
addition a wide range of approvals under other legislation may also be required (refer to
Appendix C).


Regardless of the environmental impact assessment process
, the project impacts must be
evaluated and mitigated in all cases.


The
Project

Environmental Management Plan (
Project

EMP) is a method of ensuring that
the measures identified and commitments made in the environmental assessment
process are delivered in
the construction and operational phases of the project.


To assist in managing the environmental impacts,
Project

EMPs should be prepared for all
projects with significant environmental issues or impacts. These should then be
responded to by t
he constructi
on contractor in a

Contractor’s
Environmental Management
Plan (
Contractor’s
EMP
).

2.2

Purpose of the
Project
EMP


The
Project

EMP is a project
-
specific source document detailing the environmental
protection requirements to mitigate and minimise environmental i
mpacts. The
Project

EMP’s primary purpose is to ensure that the environmental requirements and
commitments associated with the project are carried forward into implementation and
operational phases of the project and are effectively managed.


DPTI
’s projec
t management process, as detailed in
DPTI
’s
Project Management Guide for
Infrastructure Projects
, is comprised of five phases:




initiation



planning



implementation



handover



operations and maintenance.

The relationship and use of the

Project

EMP during a p
roject’s life span from the
Planning
Phase through to the Operation and Maintenance Phase

is depicted in Figure 1 of these
guidelines.


The
Project

EMP provides for the adoption and integration of project specific
environmental management requirements that

are identified through:



the process of environmental impact assessment



legislation



standards



policies and guidelines



community consultation



environmental clearance.

In addition, the
Project

EMP assigns management responsibility for environmental
protectio
n during the project’s life span and provides a checklist for monitoring the
environmental management of the project.


The
Project

EMP, having defined the environmental management mitigation measures,
provides the basis for the construction contractor to d
evelop and document how the
environmental management requirements should be implemented on site.


The implementation document prepared by the construction contractor is referred to as
the
Contractor’s
EMP
. The
Contractor’s

EMP

should also include inspectio
n and
monitoring for compliance with the environmental outcomes with a view to taking
corrective actions to ensure a continued high level of environmental performance.


DPTI
’s guidelines for the development of
Contractor’s

EMP
s, while forming part of this
series of guidelines, are documented separately in a booklet titled
Contractor’s

Environmental Management Plan Guidelines for Construction
-

Road,
Rail

and Marine
Facilities
.


In order to ensure delivery of environmental outcomes for the project the constr
uction
work will be subject to environmental audit by
DPTI
, which should also provide the basis to
continually improve the agencies environmental systems, plans and performance. For an
explanation of this process refer to the
Environmental Audit Guidelines

for Construction
-

Road,
Rail

and Marine Facilities
. The
Project

EMP should also outline any measures, such

as monitoring that will need to be undertaken in the operations and maintenance phase.

2.3


Is a Project
EMP Required for all Projects?


A

Project

EMP should be prepared wherever there are significant environmental impacts
associated with a

project. It is expected that a

Project

EMP wil
l be required for all major
projects or projects with significant environmental issues or impacts, for example, work
that will affect a heritage site, vegetation, fauna, air, noise or wat
er quality. Advice on
whether a

Project

EMP is needed can be obtained

from the Senior Environmental
Management Officer, Specialist Services.


The scope and content of each
Project

EMP will be a function of the significance of the
potential impact and environmental significance of the project. It is the responsibility of
DPT
I
’s Project Manager to ensure a
Project

EMP is prepared and is suitable to mitigate
the project’s environmental impacts. It should be prepared in the planning and design
phase of a project whether undertaken by the Specialist Services Section or elsewhere.


Whether a
Project
EMP is prepared or not, all construction work shall comply with
DPTI
’s Environmental Code of Practice for construction and the environmental
requirements in the Master Specification
.

DPTI
’s Project Management Guide
for Infrastructure Projects; in particular details associated with the planning, design and
implementation phases.


H
owever, detailed responsibilities may vary depending on the contractual arrangements
applicable for each project.
DPTI

has adopted environmental impact assessment systems
based on the primary objective of ensuring all environmental impacts for a given proj
ect
are considered, options reviewed and the “best” solution adopted, documented,
implemented and monitored.


The development and implementation of the measures documented in the
Project

EMPs
and
Contractor’s

EMP
s should facilitate mitigation of the identi
fied potential impacts.

3.1

Planning & Design Phase

PREPARING THE
PROJECT
EMP

4.1

Development of the
Project
EMP

The
Project

EMP should be prepared durin
g the project’s Planning and Design Phase and
a draft
Project

EMP incorporated into the Concluding Report or EIAR. The
Project

EMP
should be amended and refined taking into account resolution of issues arising from
stakeholder and community consultation, e
nvironmental impact assessment and
environmental clearance. The final
Project

EMP should be included in the PDR. It is
important to note that the specific environmental management protection structures and
requirements, for example sediment control structu
res and no
-
go areas, should be
identified in the
Project

EMP schedules (see page 17 in Appendix B) and referenced on
the site plans developed during the design phase of a project.


The
Project

EMP is to clearly recognise the environmental requirements asso
ciated with
each distinct phase of a project’s lifespan; namely the:



planning phase



implementation phase



operations and maintenance phase.


4.1.1

Planning Phase

During the Planning Phase environmental data should be collected to establish baseline
conditio
ns. Establishment of the baseline conditions should provide the basis for
assessing alternative solutions, selecting the preferred alternative, stakeholder
consultation and monitoring the project’s impacts, both during construction and operation.


The
Proj
ect

EMP should document the applicable legislative requirements and approvals
and provide reference to the appropriate standards, policies, codes and guidelines.
Hence ensuring the project is managed in accordance with best practice environmental
manageme
nt and, as such, environmental impacts are minimised. Project
-
specific
performance criteria should be identified in the
Project

EMP schedules and the source of
the criteria identified, for example environmental clearance condition, statutory
requirement, E
PA guidelines etc. (Appendix B).


4.1.2

Implementation Phase

The
Project

EMP should be utilised as a basis for the detailed design to ensure that the
environmental requirements and undertakings established in the planning phase such as
noise barriers, sedi
ment control structures, drainage and landscaping are integrated into
the design.

The
Project

EMP should reflect the environmental management requirements for
individual construction packages or contracts. Issues arising from letting of contracts
and/or

staging of the project such as location of depots, disposal sites for surplus material,
location of access tracks, should be addressed.


The
Project

EMP should identify the performance criteria to be achieved during
construction and highlight issues requi
ring specific management. The contractor should
document, in the
Contractor’s

EMP
, how the project impacts will be mitigated and how the
construction impacts will be managed.


4.1.3

Operation and Maintenance Phase

The
Project

EMP should provide details of
any approvals and performance criteria to be
achieved during the operation and maintenance of the asset, ie. approvals for
maintenance dredging, or performance criteria in relation to noise, air quality or
rehabilitation of vegetation. Some of these aspect
s may require monitoring for a number of

years after completion of construction.


The monitoring and auditing of the impacts during the operations and maintenance Phase
provide the basis for reviewing and improving aspects of
DPTI
’s environmental
managemen
t in relation to projects.


This review is important in the context of continuous improvement and the achievement of
best practice environmental management.

4.2

Format and content of the
Project
EMP

The
Project
EMP should cover all relevant aspects of the
project including
preconstruction, construction, and operation and maintenance of the asset. The
Project
EMP is not restricted to construction activities only.


The
Project

EMP’s primary purpose is to ensure the environmental requirements,
identified durin
g and following the Planning/Design Phase, are implemented and
effectively managed during a project’s life cycle. The checklists in Appendix D provide a
guide to the environmental activities and issues generally associated with projects and
should be used
to ensure that the
Project

EMP addresses all the relevant issues.


The
Project
EMP will be part of the contractual requirements for the project and is
incorporated into the project specifications.


The
Project

EMP should reflect the requirements of these g
uidelines; however, these
guidelines are not intended to be prescriptive and may be varied depending on project
-
specific issues, requirements and circumstan
ces. The form and content of a Project

EMP,
including a typical
Project

EMP schedule, is presented i
n Appendix B of this guide.


The contents o
f a

Project

EMP, typically, should include:



objectives of the
Project

EMP



project management structure and responsibilities



training/induction requirements

inspection, monitoring and audit program requirements



nomination of hold points. Hold points are normally imposed at a stage where

further activity could cause environmental damage if the appropriate protection

measur
es are not in place



site plan showing environmental sensitivities.

4.3


Who prepares and controls the
Project
EMP?

DPTI

retains primary responsibility for the environmental performance of its projects and,
as such,
DPTI
’s Project Manager assumes responsibi
lity for ensuring the preparation of
an acceptable
Project

EMP. The Senior Environmental Management Officer approves the
Project

EMP.


While the
Project

EMP might be prepared by a consultant, the document should be
controlled and maintained in accordance w
ith
DPTI
’s document control procedures.

4.4


Consultation

During preparation of the
Project

EMP all relevant parties should be consulted, including
the statutory authorities that have environmental protection responsibilities. Broader
community invol
vement might be appropriate, depending on the circumstances of the
project. In all cases the specific requirements arising from environmental assessment,
environmental clearance and consultation should be established and defined as early as
possible.

4.5


Can the
Project
EMP be amended?

The
Project

EMP should be reviewed and updated by
DPTI

as required during the
project’s life cycle. Any amendments should be reviewed and agreed by the author and
the Senior Environmental Management Officer.

4.5.1

Before Fin
alisation of Contract Specifications

Minor changes may occur to the project scope after the completion of the Planning Phase.
Planning Phase completion is noted by the acceptance of the PDR, which includes the
Project

EMP. These changes may result from, fo
r example, availability of additional
environmental information, agreements made during design changes and issues arising
from project staging. As such, an iterative process is required to integrate the detailed
design and the
Project

EMP ensuring that app
ropriate hold points are documented in the
Project

EMP schedules.


This is accepted as a normal part of project development in the Implementation Phase.
However, care should be taken to ensure that any changes to the project and the
Project

EMP do not com
promise the environmental management requirements identified during
the EIA process.


If there are changes to the scope of the project, reassessment of environmental impacts
may be necessary. Advice should be sought from
DPTI
’s Senior Environmental
Managem
ent Officer in such circumstances.

4.5.2

After Finalisation of Contract Specifications

As a result of audi
ting or changed circumstances a

Project

EMP may be amended during
the implementation phase. Caution should be exercised in relation to any proposed
ch
anges as reassessment of the environmental impacts may be required. The need for
the changes should be documented and discussed with the Senior Environmental
Management Officer and the contractor. Changes may require discussion with relevant
statutory auth
orities and, if necessary, the community. Any contractual ramifications
should be carefully examined.

4.5.3

Operational Phase

As part of the Project handover process the
Project

EMP should be reviewed, by the
Project Manager, Project Environmental Officer
and the Asset Manager at handover of the
project, to assess any on
-
going environmental management issues. Any
Project

EMP
requirements during the operational phase should be documented in the handover report
and should be managed by incorporation into mai
ntenance or monitoring contracts.

LEGISLATION AND OTHE
R BEST PRACTICE DOCU
ME
NTS


The
Project

EMP has, as its basis, the legislative requirements under South Australian law
and, where appropriate, Commonwealth legislation. Environmental compliance requires
adherence to the general and specific requirements of relevant legislation.


The
Environmental Legislation Summary, Construction
is available to assist in the process
of integrating the requirements of relevant environmental legislation into the environmental
management of projects. The document is available on
DPTI
’s Environment
Group
website (web link).


The listings presented in Appendix C of these Guidelines provide reference to the
legislation commonly encountered and applicable to
DPTI
’s activities. In addition,
Appendix C tables the appropriate statutory authority responsibl
e for issuing approvals or
permits in accordance with the relevant legislation, as well as appropriate Australian
Standards, policies, codes of practice and guidelines.


It should be noted that
DPTI

is committed to environmental management and
performance
that is beyond legislative compliance and is deemed to comply with accepted
best practice standards.


Best practice environmental management includes the application of the requirements of
policies, codes of practice, guidelines and Australian Standards wh
ich are relevant to
construction activities managed by
DPTI

as listed in Appendix C.

APPENDIX B


FORM AND CONTENT OF AN ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT PLAN (for guidance
only)


1. INTRODUCTION


1.1 Background




State
DPTI
’s environmental policy and

goals as referred to in the Corporate Plan and
Environment Strategic Plan.



Identify the objective(s) of
DPTI
’s environmental management process, including the
Project

EMP and
Contractor’s
EMP
.


For example:

-

to identify and minimise the environmental impac
ts of construction

-

to implement and manage an environmental management system which ensures
construction practices and outcomes achieve environmental best practice, while
fully complying with statutory and regulatory requirements

-

to continually improve the

system by analysing and, where appropriate,
incorporating stakeholder and audit feedback via regular management reviews

-

to utilise the
Project

EMP to ensure all requirements and commitments made
during the planning and environmental assessment process are

incorporated and

-

managed effectively during the construction and operational phases of the


project

-

to ensure the Construction Contractor develops an acceptable
Contractor’s

EMP
, in

response to the
Project

EMP, to minimise construction impacts.




Identify
the construction Contractors environmental obligations accepted under the
conditions of contract.



For example:

-

this
Project

EMP contains contractual requirements and performance criteria, as
specified in the
Project

EMP schedules that are to be satisfied

under the terms
and conditions of the contract.


The Construction Contractor is required to pre
pare, implement and maintain a
Contractor’s

EMP

in accordance with the Department’s published
Contractor’s

EMP

Guidelines.

1.2 Project and Environs




Provid
e brief description of project, purpose and key environmental issues.



Attach or refer to site plans showing key environmental sensitivities, constraints and
mitigation measures.


2. ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT PROCESS


2.1 Management Structure and Responsibil
ities




Describe environmental management processes both internally and externally to apply
to the project.



Describe roles and responsibilities of personnel during the project’s implementation
and operational phases (use of a project organisational chart wi
ll assist).



Describe the training and induction requirements.


2.2 Environmental Requirements




Identify the relevant environmental legislation and describe how it applies to the
project.



Identify the permits, authorisations and approvals required under th
e relevant
legislation and responsibility for obtaining them.



Identify relevant best practice documents including Australian Standards, policies,
codes and guidelines.



Describe emergency response and environmental control requirements.



Identify Mandatory H
old Points (MHP) in relevant
Project

EMP schedules.



Describe non
-
conformance process and corrective action steps.



Describe and reference the
Contractor’s

EMP

process, procedures and
responsibilities. (Note reference to
DPTI
’s
Contractor’s

EMP

Guidelines.)


3. ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT SCHEDULES




Identify key environmental issues for the project, and specify the objective(s) for each
issue. The impact of construction activities may be managed collectively under the
specific issues, for example, erosion and se
diment control. For this issue, a key
objective may be “to minimise the quantity of soil lost during and after construction and
to maintain the quality of stormwater entering drainage systems”.



Identify specific commitments or actions to achieve each objec
tive, eg. “design, install,
maintain and monitor erosion and sediment control structures during the project’s life
cycle”.



Identify for each commitment whether it is a task relevant to:

-

design

-

construction

-

operation.

Prepare schedules, identifying the pro
ject stage relevant for each commitment as shown
in the following tabular format titled “An example of a

Project

EMP Schedule”.




Identify conditions of approval, standards, policies, codes and guidelines to comply
with legislative and best practice require
ments; eg.
Stormwater Pollution Control
-

General Code of Practice for State and Federal Government Agencies, EPA, 1996
.



Include in the schedule the monitoring requirements for the project including any
monitoring required prior to construction activities
commencing. For example, a typical
schedule for stormwater pollution control would identify:

-

area of risk: sediment controls, silt fences and traps

-

purpose: to determine effectiveness of installation

-

monitoring requirements: eg. measurement of suspended so
lids on the
downstream side of control devices during a rainfall event and compare to
approval, licence or best practice standards

-

remedial action: improvement of design, operation or maintenance of control
devices as required.


4. AUDITING




Identify key
project activities that may generate significant environmental impact and
develop an audit plan.



Major project impacts are expected during construction and, hence, the audit focus
should concentrate on this phase of the project. The audit objective is to v
erify that
specified environmental activities, events, conditions and management systems
conform to contractual performance criteria.
