Environmental Project - I am sure it fits into ISO14001 somewhere

I am required to do 3 projects a year in the EHS Department. So I decided to do one each for environmental, health, and safety.

For the environmental project, I went through the plant and listed all of the hazardous chemicals and set a goal of reducing them by a minimum of 10%. These chemicals I will try to replace with environmentally friendly chemicals while trying to keep the cost of the chemicals the same or less than we are paying now. (for example: I saw a food grade weed killer made from vinegar we could use instead of the methyl ethyl death spray we are using now. We are a large plant and you would be suprised at the amount of this stuff used around our plant and fence lines.)

Although this is a company requirement, I am sure it fits into ISO14001 somewhere and would like to include this in our ISO program documentation.

I was thinking it would go into our targets and objectives, but our hazardous chemicals weren't listed in our targets and objects and didn't require a project.

So how do I add this to ISO?

Identify it as an "Legal or Other Requirement 4.3.2"

Do the aspect impact thing 4.3.1

Set it as an Objective 4.3.3

Monitor it 4.5.1

Record everything 4.5.4

Make folks aware of it 4.4.2 & 4.4.3

Link it to committment to prevent pollution and improve 4.2

Just a few possible things

So you are saying that I can put this anywhere and everywhere.

I think I am making this harder than it has to be.

Thanks Randy.

Only if it fits, but basically, yep. :yes:

Not unusual. You'd be surprised how complicated a mousetrap or a tire swing can get.

Remember K.I.S.S (nothing to do with Gene Simmons)


Thanks Randy.[/QUOTE]

You're welcome.
