In order to comply with modern standards each company should produce high quality products, but also care about the environment. Business shouldn’t damage nature in order to get profit and from year to year such a tendency turns into a real rule supported by the government. There are even certain standards that were created in order to organise a process of controlling enterprises’ activity in the UK and all over the world. For example, ISO 14001. These recommendations determine methods of monitoring business performance and provide guidelines on how production should be performed. In some situations the production line won’t be allowed to work without a EMAS license.
Problems and solutions
This way of managing production is fully justified from the point of view of ecology, safety, and in order to match requirements of regulator an enterprise will have to care about:
- competence of personnel;
- equipment compliance;
- technological processes and applied materials quality;
- ways of controlling production line;
- system of analysis of possible pollution impact.
It is quite difficult to make an enterprise environmentally friendly, however there are certain benefits from this. For example:
- perfect reputation among potential and existing clients;
- tolerance on the part of the government and love of the public;
- advanced production technologies allows to create more interesting items;
- reduction of costs if methods are applied correctly.
For any organisation that is intended to get ISO 14001 certification it will be vital to prepare specialists who will take under control different spheres of business activities. Except for equipment it will be required to perform regular internal audits, monitoring of production, make records of emission and create models of elimination of noncompliance. Workers should also undergo trainings that are aimed to increase the level of understanding of how to make work safe on a regular basis. Of course, it will also be essential to use special software.
