Using ISO 14001 and 45001 systems to better

prepare for and manage risks

With Expert Panelists:

Lisa Wilk, CEO, CAPACCIO Environmental Engineering, Inc.

Stephen Brown, Auditor, EAGLE Certification Group
Megan Kromer, EHS Manager, Analog Devices, Inc.

Moderated by:
Cristina Mendoza, Strategic Integration Lead,
CAPACCIO Environmental Engineering, Inc.

Effective ISO 14001 Environmental Management Systems and ISO 45001 Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems are designed to identify risks and opportunities, prioritize actions around these risks and opportunities, and thereby best position your organizations for success.

Some organizations may initially see registration to these standards as a cost of doing business in order to meet customer and other stakeholder demands. With the unprecedented global COVID-19 pandemic, it has become clear that these ISO systems can help ensure critical organizational needs are prioritized and addressed pro-actively.

Topics we covered:

  • How well did risk management & planning work for pandemic preparedness?

    • Pros: Value of having a management system during the pandemic

    • Cons: Areas for improvement

    • Adaptations for Pandemic: Performing remote ISO audits & assessments, using technology (e.g., EHS-Dashboard™)

  • How well integrated are your systems with your overall organization? Are your systems causing extra work, or are they making things better? Did your system come to a halt with the pandemic or were alternative plans in place to keep critical items moving forward?

  • How well did "change management" aspects of your systems work? What worked well? Areas for improvement?

  • Are you better prepared for future "unprecedented" event(s)? What might these be?

  • What might a registrar look at when evaluating your systems in light of recent events?

What you will learn:

  • How ISO 14001 EMS and ISO 45001 OHSMS systems have helped organizations be better prepared

  • How to improve the effectiveness of environmental health & safety (EHS) risk assessments and planning

  • How these systems can minimize disruption to your organization and ensure prioritized objectives can continue to be met
