ISO 14001 Implementation Workshop


ISO 14001:2004 is an international standard that specifies the requirements for an environmental management system. The standard requires that organisations control environmental aspects. The standard is applicable to organisations who wish to:

  • Implement, maintain and improve an environmental management system.
  • Assure itself of its conformance with its own stated environmental policy.
  • Demonstrate conformance to the requirements of ISO 14001.
  • Ensure compliance with environmental laws & regulations.
  • Seek certification of its environmental management system by an external third party.

The Progress Excellence Approach

  • Dissecting the standard and translating the requirements into understandable terms.
  • Clear guidance on environmental aspects and impact determination.
  • Practical examples and case studies to entrench theoretical principles.
  • Explaining how to effectively implement environmental management system requirements (e.g. management review, corrective actions, non conformances,
    document and record control).
  • Practical advice supported by practical resource kits that explain best practice techniques to develop, document and implement an environmental management system in any organisation.
