The ISO 14001:2015 Audit Guide and Checklist is designed as a theoretical journey through your organization following a Turtle Diagram methodology. The evidence-based questions start with management and flow through the path of a generic product through an organization. The questions have one objective – to provide you with a tool to achieve the value-added and sustainable EMS that you want.
Following 10 insightful chapters that will be sure to inspire creative ideas for your organization, you can dive into the evidence-based questions. Part One uses the Turtle Diagram Audit approach to examine the complete system. This includes questions about the conformity of the system to the standard along with dozens of Best Practice questions to help you better evaluate the effectiveness of the system. Audit Process questions are designed to help an internal auditor gather data that can improve the audit process itself.
Part Two covers questions based on individual process assessments. An EMS that is simply an overlay on the business is ineffective. If an Environmental Coordinator manages the environmental aspects of the business and everyone else is a bystander or barrier the objectives of the EMS will never be met. Therefore this checklist is designed by process to ensure that environmental aspects and impacts are identified and managed within the department where they exist.
The ISO 14001:2015 Audit Guide and Checklist offers:
1. A by process design that ensures Environmental Aspects and Impacts are identified and managed within the organization where they actually exist. 2. Help in planning and organizing process audits for your EMS effectively and documenting the results in a meaningful way. 3. A proven method to implement a sustainable and value-added EMS based on best practice.
