Environmental Safety       

Environmental impact is an important issue across the globe, with pressure to minimize that impact coming from many sources, including governments, supply chains and other stakeholders. An Environmental Management System (EMS) provides you with a framework for managing environmental responsibilities efficiently in a way that is integrated into your overall operations.


ISO 14001 is the cornerstone standard of the ISO 14000 series (related standards include BS7750 and EMAS). It specifies a framework of control for an EMS against which an organisation can be certified by a third party.


Typical examples of environmental legislation/regulation over recent years are the EC Directive on Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) and Restriction on Hazardous Substances Directive (RoHS) as well as Packaging (Essential Requirements) Regulations 1998.  SAS can assist you in understanding the implications of this legislation and taking effecting action.  We can support your organisation in areas such as:

  • Development of new Environmental Management Systems, including Technical Procedures for Environmental Risk Management

  • Environmental Management Planning        

  • Environmental Impact Assessment        

  • Disposal Planning      

  • Environmental Audits     

  • Stakeholder and Standards Identification
