ISO Integrated Management System Training The Way To Go

We all know there’s a lot of red tape in business and, if you’re a small to medium-sized enterprise, it can be really hard to keep up with it all. Unfortunately, with an increasing number of rules and regulations in place, you don’t really have a choice.

Take environmental management, for example. Legislation is much tougher these days, and rightly so. This is one of those areas where government has responded to demand from the public and other organisations, to put in place protective measures for our endangered environment.

For too long some companies got away with showing little responsibilities and, as a result, we have seen some terrible environmental disasters.

Meeting Customer Demands

So, if you’re an SME, what’s the best way that you can ensure you’re meeting all and any environmental criteria, as well as ‘green’ demands from your customers, without incurring huge expense?

There is a simple solution – and that’s an ISO 14001 environmental management system in Queensland.EMSRecognised globally as the most comprehensive and recognised environmental standard, ISO 14001 was recently revised, and provides an unbeatable management tool for any sized organisation. Whether you are running a transport company or a tea-room, this standard provides a user-friendly set of systems to not only ensure you are meeting your legal obligations, but to also reduce your costs.

Minimising Risk

The ISO 14001 environmental management system is about identifying and minimising environmental risk; making better use of natural resources; reducing waste; reducing water and energy use, and more.

With the 2015 revision, there is now increased emphasis on other key environmental topics, such as climate change, and encouragement to recycle and re-use wherever possible.

The beauty of international standards is that, rather than increase the amount of red tape, they actually work to reduce documentation and duplication. And one of the ways in which they do this, is through integration.

Integrating Systems

ISO integrated management system training shows businesses how to bundle the key systems they need and use. So, for example, a business looking to implement ISO 14001 environmental management system in Queensland, might also integrate a workplace safety management standard, such as AS/NZS 4801 or OHSAS 18001.

It makes perfect sense to put these together, as both are about safe work practices, reducing risk and minimising impact on the surrounds.

Creating an integrated management system is as simple as contacting standard consulting in Brisbane.
