We are all aware that our environment is under threat and that changes must be made to protect it. By creating Environmental Awareness, it can be made clear that it is not just big organisations that have a responsibility to make changes nor just companies that deal with hazardous materials or waste disposal. No, it is something that concerns absolutely all of us.
ISO 14001:2015 specifies the requirements for an Environmental Management System that an organisation can use to enhance its environmental performance. ISO 14001:2015 is intended for organisations that seek to manage their environmental responsibilities in a systematic manner that contributes to the environmental pillar of sustainability.
By staying consistent with the organisation’s environmental policies and procedures, the intended outcomes of an Environmental Management System are:
- Enhancement of environmental performance.
- Fulfilment of conformance obligations.
- Achievement of environmental objectives.
What is ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Management Training?
ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Management System training is a process that allows individuals to explore environmental issues, participate in problem-solving, and take action to improve the environment. As a result, delegates develop a more informed understanding of environmental issues and have the skills to make knowledgeable and responsible decisions.
Some of the benefits of environmental training are:
- Awareness and sensitivity to the environment and environmental challenges.
- Knowledge and understanding of the environment and environmental challenges.
- Attitudes of concern for the environment and motivation to improve or maintain environmental quality.
- Skills to identify and help resolve environmental challenges.
- Participation in activities that lead to the resolution of environmental challenges.
Why yes, ISO can be simple and fun!
This is where WWISE’s eLearning platform, classroom training, or virtual training courses can help. We offer ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Management System Awareness, Implementation, and Internal Auditor courses that are affordable, easily accessible, and can be done at any time, without interrupting day-to-day operations.
The ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Management System Awareness course provides employees with an overview of the standard and its requirements. It also provides an organisation with a model for understanding, establishing, managing, and improving their environmental activities, aspects, and impacts. This course is designed in such a manner that it is relevant to all levels of staff and explains the increasing awareness of “going green”. Employees will be able to adopt a risk-based approach to their ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Management System, as well as contribute to the continuous improvement thereof.
After completing the ISO 14001:2015 Awareness course, it will be beneficial to upskill the different departments of your organisation by completing the WWISE ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Management Implementation course, which will create a smoother implementation process and equip employees (or individuals) with the relevant skills and knowledge to assess and report on the conformance of their Environmental Management System. This training course will enable employees to apply best practices to the implementation of the system by:
- Using verified tools and techniques.
- Being able to implement a system that considers socio-economic needs and environmental conditions; and
- Improving the effectiveness of the Environmental Management System practices.
And after the ISO 14001:2015 system is implemented?
For an ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Management System to operate successfully and continually improve, Internal Audits need to be conducted as part of the organisation’s procedures. The purpose of this training course is to equip the selected employees with the required knowledge and skills needed to perform internal audits on their ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Management System and to contribute to its continual improvement. It allows them to conduct First Party (Internal) and Second Party (Supplier) Audits. WWISE supplies toolkits, checklists, templates, and practical case studies to equip each delegate or employee with the necessary skills.
A successful ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Management System relies on the positive forces of creativity and responsibility of all employees in an organisation. The real challenge is to ensure that environmental management becomes and remains a productive force, and a continuous cause for innovation, rather than another burden on top of other daily processes or procedures.
