  1. ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT SYSTEMpresented bySally Bardossy

  2. Objectives • Provide an Overview of EMS • ISO 14001 Certification Schedule • Discuss impacts to our clients

  3. What is an Environmental Management System? It is a management approach that requires: • a specific policy • the identification of factors, including risks • the setting of targets and objectives • monitoring of performance against objectives

  4. Plan, Do, Check, Act

  5. EMS requires documentation at each stage Plan – how to operate with regard to the environment Do – procedures to follow while conducting business that protect the environment / achieve your plan Check – take the time to review how you do versus your plan Act – learn from your performance to do better next time

  6. What is the Cariboo-Chilcotin’s EMS? • Defines environmental performance we’d like to achieve • Describes who will do what, and when to achieve it. • Defines clear roles and responsibilities • Always evaluating and improving the system and our performance

  7. BCTS Provincial Certification Schedule

  8. BCTS Provincial Certification Schedule

  9. BCTS environmental policy : States the guiding principles of our EMS and commits to: • Meeting all laws • Preventing pollution • Protecting the environment • Continually improving

  10. What is ISO 14001? • International Organisation for Standardization (ISO) • ISO 14001 is an international generic standard for environmental management systems (EMS) that can be applied to any industry • ISO 14001 certified EMS allows companies to set their own goals for issues of greatest concern

  11. ISO 14001 Certification for Cariboo-Chilcotin Business Area means: • Our EMS meets ISO 14001 standards • Independent auditor confirms that we’ve done what we said we were going to do in our EMS

  12. Why do we need EMS ? • Ensures marketability of our products • Provides an efficient system for improving our business practises • Provides clear expectations between staff and clients • Due Diligence Defence

  13. Scope of our EMS • All BCTS operations including planning, harvesting, silviculture, road construction and maintenance • All BCTS Licensees, Permittees, Contractors (LPC) activities and operations under our control or influence • Not the LPC camps, shops or off site facilities

  14. BCTS’s Approach to EMS Set-up Phase - present Voluntary Implementation Phase - May 2005 Mandatory Implementation Phase - October 2005 Audit Phase - January 2006

  15. Mandatory Implementation PhaseApplies toAll Contracts/TSL’s issued after October 1, 2005 • Documents will contain mandatory EMS conformance clauses • LPC signatory/supervisor must have proof of BCTS Level 3 certification (card) • Level 3 supervisor delivers and documents “tail-gate training and test-drills” with all on-site staff for each project

  16. Voluntary Implementation Phase • Cariboo-Chilcotin BCTS offering Level 3 training to LPC’s signatory/supervisors March - April 2005 • Planning 2 sessions in Williams Lake and 2 sessions in Quesnel • Voluntary participation means working together to learn staff/client roles and responsibilities

  17. Voluntary Implementation Phase • Will not require mandatory EMS conformance clauses to be added to existing documents • Requires the signing of a voluntary conformance agreement at training session • LPC’s do not have to participate but will have to obtain their own Level 3 certification at their own cost

  18. Level 3 Training will use Operational Controls • Environmental Operating Procedures • Environmental Field Procedures • Emergency Preparedness Response Manual • Emergency Response Plan • Checklists (pre-works) • Supplements

  19. Emergency Response Manual BCTS Environmental Policy Spill Kit Requirements Reporting Requirements for Landslides/Major Erosion Events, Forest Fires and Spills LPC responsibilities and testing requirements

  20. BCTS EMS • EMS LPC Level 3 – Management/Supervisor* • General awareness of ISO 14001 and EMS • Review ISO elements and provide an overview of the BA EMS Manual • Review EMS procedures and checklists/forms • Review EOP’s and EFP’s • Review non-conformance & non-compliance and corrective action • Review responsibilities under the EMS * A classroom module provided by Provincial Trainers and cards issued (training is acceptable throughout the province for BCTS activities)

  21. BCTS EMS • EMS Level 3 – BasicWorker Training** • EMS and SFM awareness • Introduction and review of applicable EFP’s • Introduction and review of the ERM and ERP ** Classroom or field training provided by a Licensee/Contractor staff who holds a card issued by a Provincial Trainer (training is acceptable only while working for the LPC who provided the training)

  22. E It’s all about RISK • Identify the basic groupings that encompass all my activities • Identify the primary operational activities that exist within these groupings • Identify impacts that could result from poor practices related to the activities Planning Harvesting Roads Silviculture Field layout Falling Deactivation Planting Failure to meet targets Trespass Erosion Excessive mortality

  23. M It’s all about RISK • Identify what adverse component of our activity we are trying to manage • Develop controls to help us avoid these components and prevent the impacts The “altering or influencing of”…riparian areas The “production of”…smoke particulates The “spillage of”…fuels and oils Increased training and awareness Targeted monitoring of risk Modification of strategies Implement more effective practices

  24. S Do Plan Check etc… Respond It’s all about RISK • Roll the controls into a system that is designed to ensure their success • Implement the system • Monitor the system for improvement

  25. Do Plan Check etc… Respond The EMS Cycle PLAN – Core components (Policy, Aspects, etc) DO – Operational Controls (Procedures) CHECK – Monitoring and Inspections RESPOND – Corrective Action (Action Plans, ITS)
