Environmental management – ISO 14001: 2004

RSA Geotechnics have recently achieved ISO 14001 certification, the international accreditation for environmental management. ISO 14001 provides practical tools for companies and organisations looking to identify and control their environmental impact and constantly improve their environmental performance.

ISO 14001 is an internationally accepted standard that outlines how to put an effective environmental management system in place. It is designed to help businesses remain commercially successful without overlooking environmental responsibilities. It can also help you to grow while reducing the environmental impact of this growth. An ISO 14001 system provides the framework to allow you to meet increasingly high customer expectations of corporate responsibility as well as legal or regulatory requirements.

ISO 14001 sets out the criteria for an environmental management system. It does not state requirements for environmental performance, but maps out a framework that a company or organisation can follow to set up an effective environmental management system. It can be used by any organisation regardless of its activity or sector. Using ISO 14001 can provide assurance to company management and employees as well as external stakeholders that environmental impact is being measured and improved.

Operations Director, Andy Symis comments; “RSA Geotechnics are members of the CHAS and Constructionline schemes and our management system is accredited for compliance with ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and ISO/IEC 17025. Our accreditation provides reassurance to our customers of our commitment to work to the highest standards. We shall continue to ensure that the quality of our services, workmanship, health and safety remain at the forefront of our business.”
