The policy is a key element of an environmental management system EMS.
I write bespoke environmental management policies and other environmental documents, e.g. spillage procedures.
An environmental management system or EMS is a structured system to allow a business to manage their impact on the environment and to comply with environmental legislation.
I write bespoke environmental management systems and provide environmental management services.
I can write a bespoke environmental management system EMS to ISO:14001 standard and carry out environmental training. I can then work with you from the start of the certification process until your EMS becomes certified.
An environmental permit is required for certain processes, for example a large chicken farm, or a solvent emission activity – releasing organic solvents directly or indirectly into the air.
A Discharge Consent is required from the sewerage undertaker before any potentially polluting liquids are discharged into a site foul water drainage system.
A typical example would be the run off from a compressor.
I carry out on site spillage training, the training will show people how to use a spill kit and raise their awareness of water pollution.
Any water contamination events resulting from a spillage entering a site drainage system and then into controlled waters will result in large fines and remediation costs.
