Reduce your environmental liability and project a reputation of EHS excellence.

ISO 14001 is the international standard for implementing an Environmental Management System (EMS).  It maps out a framework that organizations can follow to set up an effective EMS. OHSAS 18001 is very similar to ISO 14001, but instead of managing environmental issues, 18001 focuses on managing Occupational Health and Safety concerns. These include Job Hazards, OSHA regulatory requirements and potential emergencies. IES can provide many of the ISO 14001 services listed on this page – for the 18001 system requirements.

Many large companies are requiring their suppliers become ISO 14001 certified. This is especially true in the automotive and electronics sectors and many foreign-based companies are also requiring ISO 14001 certifications.

ISO 14001 builds an EMS that addresses legal compliance issues and environmental aspects. OHSAS 18001/ISO 45001 manages job hazards and other Health and Safety issues. These standards helps build improvement objectives, training programs and control documents (work instructions, operating manuals, etc) to manage the system.

ISO 14001 has changed. Have you transitioned to the 2015 version?

ISO 14001:2015, published in September 2015, is the newest version of the standard. It has been updated to provide organizations the most current and relevant requirements for improved performance and business benefits.

IES can work with you today to ensure a smooth transition in the future.
