Pre
-
requisite for the Implementation of EMS

The

theoretical

benefits

of

an

environmental

management

system

may

sound

convincing,

but

there

are

challenges

concerning

the

implementation

of

an

environmental

management

system
.




Management
commitment and resource availability.


Before
you begin, your
organization
must be fully committed to
providing the necessary time and resources (personnel, financial,
technical
etc
).



The
use of overly
-
bureaucratic management system documentation.


Remember
to make your environmental management system
user
-
friendly and practical. A few good procedures will be more
effective than many poor ones.



An
initial environmental
review (baseline) is
the best way to establish
the current position of your
organisation.

Copy Right © Mainpoint (Pty) Ltd

An initial environmental review
should
cover four key
areas that
include:



Identification

of

the

environmental

aspects

associated

with

your

activities,

products

and

services

in

the

past,

present

and

future

(normal
,

abnormal

and

emergency

[unplanned]

situations)
.



Identification

of

applicable

legal

requirements

and

other

requirements

to

which

the

organisation

subscribes

(self
-
imposed,

trade

associations,

industry

standards

etc
)
.



Examination

of

existing

management

practices

and

procedures
;

including

those

associated

with

procurement

and

contracting
.



Evaluation

of

previous

emergency

situations

and

incidents,

complaints,

advices,

communications

with

Regulators

etc
.
