Environmental Management Systems (EMS) are designed to provide organizations with the tools and techniques so that they may better manage their environmental responsibilities. Momentum QMS helps organizations manage and reduce environmental impact by not only allowing employees to monitor and maintain environmental objectives and targets but also to easily report, investigate and resolve any environmental events.
Moreover, the system uses a risk-based approach when evaluating any environmental events and helps employees to plan, implement and monitor corrective actions to ensure that the risks have been addressed.
|ISO 14001: 2015 Section||Requirement||Momentum QMS|
|4: Context of the organization||Understanding the context, the needs and any internal and external factors (Environmental or Non Environmental) that affect the Organisation. Determine the scope and continually building, adapting and improving the OH&S management system.||Provides industry best practices and can be tuned to meet your organization’s unique needs and requirements. For example, Momentum QMS allows you to capture and monitor risks and opportunities (internal or external) that may impact the organization. The system promotes accountability, collaboration and involvement of personnel and stakeholders and yet is very simple to use and maintain.|
Furthermore, Momentum QMS is an integrated platform where processes can communicate with one another and the system can be used to map a holistic view of the entire Environmental Management System.
Key takeaways: Flexibility and Adaptability
|5: Leadership||Emphasis on top management to engage fully with all aspects of the Environmental Management System.||Documents such as the Environmental policy can be developed with consultation and participation of key personnel. Such documents can be distributed and communicated to the relevant people and acknowledgments and exams can be used to confirm their understanding.|
Objectives and Targets can be set with respect to aspects such as Air, Land and Water and accountability can be set to demonstrate commitment and leadership.
Momentum QMS is a centralized software, however, the roles, responsibilities and accountability is de-centralized. This allows leadership to not only communicate, enforce and promote Quality principles but at the same time enable teams to work collaboratively to solve problems.
Key takeaways: Centralized Software, Environmental Aspects and Objectives, Employee Training and Document Control
|6: Planning||Risk-based thinking and Planning||Risk assessments can be initiated at all critical decision points within the system.|
Risks can be captured from Hazard Identification, Environmental Aspects and Objectives, Environmental Incident reporting etc.
Furthermore, use of Bow-Tie analysis allow for a holistic view of risks within the organization and allows for actions/controls to be implemented that can be tracked and monitored till completion. The effectiveness of such control can also be measured.
Key takeaways: Risk Management, Objectives and Targets, Environmental Incidents, Actions Tracking and Monitoring
|7: Support||People, Place and Procedural aspects of the OH&S system + Organizational Knowledge||System can be set up to ensure all employees are competent in their tasks by capturing and automating organizational training and by integrating with the organizational Training matrix. Employees can be trained directly within the system or the system can even be used to capture external training.|
Organisational knowledge can be expanded through a number of existing processes as a result of lessons learned, this information can then be codified in the system in terms of business rules and thus adding to the existing organizational knowledge bank.
Key takeaways: Document Control, Employee Training, Business Rules and processes
|8: Operations||Operational Control and Emergency Planning||Operational processes can be automated within the system so that all documentation is captured directly within the system. Environmental Hazards and Incidents can be reported, and controls can be implemented so that risks are reduced.|
External suppliers and contractors can be added to the system and their role and activities can be controlled through access/ authorization controls so that any activities being performed by them are controlled/monitored.
Emergency preparedness plans can be developed and controlled within the system in consultation with key personnel and stakeholders. Emergency plans can be communicated and training conducted electronically to ensure employees are competent in handling emergency situations.
Key takeaways: Integrated modules, Change Management, Project Management, Training and Document Control
|9: Performance evaluation||Compliance, Internal Audits, and Management Reviews||The Organization can document and monitor how it complies with specific legislative requirements and standards. Environmental Aspects can be monitored and schedules can be set up for its measurement, analysis, and performance. Such monitoring and measurements can be assigned to individuals for accountability and escalation purposes.|
Audits can be developed and captured directly in the system with actions and investigations assigned to appropriate people so that there is accountability within the team. The system ensures that audits are followed up by improvements that ensure the effectiveness of carrying out an audit.
Meetings management allow the capture of management reviews and any actions are tracked in the system for future followup meetings.
Key takeaways: Environmental Aspects Objectives and Targets, Audits, Meetings and Analytics
|10. Improvement||Non-Conformances and a commitment to continuous improvement||With standard modules for tracking Environmental Aspects, Incidents, Hazards, Issues, Non-Conformances and Corrective actions you can be assured that all manner of issues are properly reported, assessed, investigated and controlled.|
Reporting, Trending and Alerts form a key component of the continuous monitoring, measurement and improvement of the system.
Key takeaways: Environmental Aspects, Hazards and Incidents, Non-Conformances, Corrective Actions, Analytics, Risk Management
Environmental Targets and Objectives
The Aspects and Objectives module allows you to manage Environmental Impacts (such as Air, Water, Land etc) by determining their significance, regulatory requirements and by setting any objectives and targets to help reduce any wastage and costs associated with such environmental aspects.
Hazard management is a continuous process that organizations can utilize to improve the health and safety of its workplace.
Momentum QMS employs a problem-solving process that aims at:
- Defining the problem (identify hazards)
- Gathering Information (assess risks)
- Solving the problem (control risks)
Risk Based Decision Making
Integrated Risk assessments enable the organisation to use a risk based approach in its decision making. Use BowTie analysis to visualise and communicate the potential threats and consequences of a risk eventuating.
