Intro to ISO 14001

Implementing ISO 14001

This course is designed for people responsible for implementing and / or maintaining an Environmental Management System in line with the requirements of ISO 14001:2015. The course takes into account the general guidelines on implementation as detailed in ISO 14004:2016.

Course Details


The course covers:

  • What is an Environmental Management System?

  • What Environmental Management Standards exist

  • The requirements of ISO 14001:2015 and how to apply them within your organisation

Attendees will gain the knowledge to be able to update and / or implement and maintain an environmental management system within their own organisation in line with the latest version of the Standard. 

Implementing ISO 14001



The first step in working towards ISO14001 is to raise awareness within your business. Many of your staff will already lean towards being environmentally responsible at home and it is stimulating and rewarding to apply best practices while at work.

We offer a training session that is tailored to the particular business and aimed at the appropriate level from operatives through to senior management.

Course Details

  • A quick quiz is held at the beginning and later staff mark their own paper against model answers. The questions and answers stimulate interest and set the scene.

  • For all staff we cover the general topics of saving energy and minimising waste.


We talk about your company's legal duties to segregate waste and dispose of it properly and invite audience participation to discuss how this can be improved in their area.

For particular groups we may then explore more technical issues and discuss opportunities for environmental improvements in their areas of work.

An A5 booklet is prepared specifically for the business, making it relevant to your processes and incorporating your logo. Clients with an intranet can have the booklet in electronic form for display on screen.

Environmental Awareness
