Environmental Management Systems
An Environmental Management System (EMS) is a tool for managing the impacts of an organisation's activities on the environment. It provides a structured approach to planning and implementing environment protection measures.
The appropriate management of contaminated soil is an important consideration during construction works, where there has been a change in business processes or when a business is relocating to a new premises. Risks to and from the environment should be regularly reviewed.
Waste avoidance, recovery and reuse of discarded materials, effective landfill management and responsible management of hazardous wastes are all critical elements of sustainable development.
Water pollution is the contamination of water bodies (e.g. lakes, rivers, oceans, aquifers and groundwater). This form of environmental degradation occurs when pollutants are directly or indirectly discharged into water bodies without adequate treatment to remove harmful compounds.
Asbestos in Soil Assessments
Managing asbestos in soil has implications for the current and future occupants of the land and/or any workers employed on the site. The potential for materials containing asbestos to generate airborne asbestos fibres varies significantly depending upon the form of the asbestos material.
