Environmental, Health, Safety, and Quality Management Services for Business and Industry, and Federal, State, and Local Government.

 

The ISO 14000 family of standards is primarily concerned with environmental management. This means what your organization does to: minimize harmful effects on the environment caused by your activities, and achieve continual improvement of your environmental performance.

How Can EHS Services, Inc. Help You?

Developing any type of quality or environmental management system is a cooperative and collaborative effort between our clients and ourselves. Our environmental professionals will carefully guide you through the ISO 14000 development process. Following are some of the steps that are necessary. We can do as much or as little as needed to see that you attain registration as quickly and as cost effectively as possible. Our goal, though, is to help you to control the environmental impacts of your organization's activities, products and services, and to help you to continually improve your environmental performance.

We'll work with you to develop your Environmental Policy

We'll ensure that your Policy:

bulletIs appropriate to the nature, scale, and environmental impacts of your activities, products, and services;
bulletInclude a commitment to continual improvement and prevention of pollution;
bulletInclude a commitment to comply with relevant environmental legislation and regulations, and with other requirements to which your organization subscribes; and
bulletProvide a framework for setting and reviewing environmental objectives and targets.

bulletWhy the development of an environmental management system is important to your organization; and
