The objective of this program is to conduct a 1 to 2-day working session with your company to develop initial components of your ISO 14001 Environmental Management System (EMS). This is a shortened version of the ISO 14001 Technical Assistance Program (6-10 sessions). Typically, the Jump Start Program works on areas such as:
- EMS Manual
- Environmental Policy
- New Clause 4 requirements
- Environmental Aspects
Following the program, your company will be in a good position to complete its EMS and acquire ISO 14001 shortly thereafter.
The primary benefit is that a company can identify and rank its environmental aspects – in the first 2-day period. This is the most critical component in getting your EMS implementation project off the ground. Establishing targets and objectives will be completed during this period as well.
