Environmental Safety

Along with Safety Health & Fire, Environmental issues are becoming more and more of a concern to your customers


The environment can be a difficult subject to stay abreast of, as environmental issues mean differing things to differing companies.

We are finding that its not just legislation that companies need to consider but the increasing number of large organisations that are adopting corporate social responsibility policies and accredited environmental management systems, so the demands on your business will continue to increase if you wish to continue to work for these companies.  You will be asked for policies procedures etc and are expected to minimise your environmental impacts where ever possible.  Additionally the threat of enforcement action is ever present, should you get it wrong. 

However its not all negative, as good environmental techniques can save you money in many areas of your business.

Included in our service to our customers Aspect provides advice on environmental issues as a component of its Safety Health Environment & Fire (SHEF) service.

A key part of any environmental management system is the identification of the main environmental issues for each individual customer.  The documenting of each issue.  The prioritising, setting of objectives and targets to control each issue as part of an overall risk management plan.  The plan then needs to be reviewed and monitored to ensure its effectiveness as it is implemented.

An example of subject headings:

  • Environmental Policy
  • Aspects and Impacts
  • Implications for recycling sites
  • Energy
  • Pollution
  • Waste management and SWMPs
  • Transport
  • Materials
  • Water
  • Ecology and land use
  • Health & well being
  • Conservation issues

Aspect can advise and assist at each stage or implement new plans as required to fit in with your requirements.  With more and more customers requiring its sub contractors and suppliers to be environmentally aware can you afford not to have an environmental policy?
