A Value added experience is what we strive to achieve with every training we provide. This is of course an auditing class, so attendees will learn auditing principles for ISO 14001 and 45001, but what makes our course different is we make the class for the EHS professionals managing the programs at the manufacturing or commercial facility. Throughout the course we will discuss best practices on not only how to audit each component of the Standard, but also how to implement, manage and improve each component of your program. With our extensive experience with a wide range of industries we have come across many ways to do things and we want to help you find the best way for you. The outcome we want to achieve with each class is for you to walk away with a few new ideas, feeling refreshed and rejuvenated to implement new programs or make tweaks to existing ones that will make you more efficient and effective.


They are a way to keep you organized and on schedule with the requirements of your organization, government, customers and other stakeholders by identifying repeatable steps to control processes within departments and the organization as a whole.  Processes need to be controlled from the manufacturing floor to Leadership to ensure everyone is working as a cohesive unit. But, it is not an easy task to control those various groups of people together and establish communication channels between them, which is why Management Systems were developed and are being voluntarily implemented at a more rapid pace in the last five years than the previous twenty. Management Systems help an organization maintain history as well to learn from past mistakes and successes to use as guides for implementing preventive action measures. Every step in improving your management system should be rooted in self-evaluation, corrective and preventive action, and heightened employee awareness to help you reach your goals and create the desired company culture.
