If you have ISO 14004 (General guidelines on principles,systems and support techniques), refer to Annex A, tables A1 & A2.

Re: Aspect and Impact Study - Identification of Environmental Aspects and Impacts

Hi,

I do not have a procedure, but I can give you a list of popular aspect, some might or might not apply to your job. From my experience, I have seen a really wide variation in what companies choose as aspects and impacts and that same variation applies to what auditors accept.

Let me know what you think.

Jonathan

Here are about 75 popular aspects.


Plant-wide pollution from all activities
Potential spill of a hazardous material
Potential release of an ODS
Post-consumer disposal of the printed material
Consumption of virgin paper stock
Consumption of energy
Consumption of natural resources
Potential spill of petroleum product
Handling new film processing chemicals
Generation of refuse (non-hazardous waste)
Generation of used production equipment
Generation of waste office paper
Generation of PCB waste
Discharge of storm water
Handling new acid batteries
Generation of used rags
Use of ODS Fire Protection Systems
Generation of waste film development chemicals
Discharge of rinse water (acidity)
Discharge of rinse water (chemical loading)
Generation of waste containers

In addition to what others have quoted, you may list out all the activities (however trivial they may be) carried out at or around the workplace. You may alternatively use the same list that you might have generated while doing Hazard identification. Look for the environmental aspects of each of the activities and determine their significance. Means how the outcomes of each of these activities interact with the environment to affect it negatively. Now, refer to the applicable environmental laws to know if any of the activities identified is regulated under the law. All the aspects relating to the regulated activities should invariably be 'significant'. Now document them and determine the significance level, devise controls (most of them can be found in the law itself) and monitor them. All the activities associated with 'significant' aspects must be operated in 'controlled' manner.

ISO 14004 is an excellent guide for further reference. You must have a copy of it.

Can you precisely let us know what kind of raw material you have in stores; means hazardous (corrosive, explosive, reactive, toxic, flammable and the like), non-hazardous or others?
