This module contains sections for:-
- Aspects/Impacts Register
- Legislation Register
- Environmental Incidents
- Environmental Improvements
- Environmental Action Tracker
A register of aspects and impacts can be assembled for the organisation. An environmental aspect may be ‘Business travel and use of fuel’. Impacts will include ‘Contribution to the greenhouse effect’, ‘Local air quality’, ‘Noise’ and ‘Ozone depletion’. A score is calculated per aspect taking account of the environmental assessment, business risk and likelihood.
All the environmental legislation that applies to the organisation can be listed by category and cross-referenced to the aspects/impacts.
Incidents with an environmental impact such as leakage of fluid from a vehicle can be recorded. Details of the incident with a severity category are logged and can be cross-referenced to the aspects/impacts register.
Actions can be added for the incident that flow into the environmental action tracker.
An environmental improvement could be storage of energy when demand is low and making it available at peak times. The module will record details of the originator, type, area and category of improvement. The investigation and outcome can be notes and documents attached. The improvement cross-references the aspects/impacts register.
Actions can be added for the improvement that flow into the environmental action tracker.
Environmental Action Tracker
Actions can be manually added to the tracker or supplied by the incidents and improvements sections. The action tracker can be filtered by type, target date and person responsible. Lists of outstanding actions can be emailed to the person responsible.
