Environmental Management System (EMS)
The Environmental Management System (EMS) is a systematic process designed to continually improve environmental performance by reducing the negative environmental impacts caused by work activities, products, and services. The primary purpose of the EMS is to continually improve environmental performance and maintain regulatory compliance.
The EMS reflects the values stated in the HPMC OMS Environmental Policy and applies to everyone who works for or on behalf of HPMC OMS.
HPMC OMS conforms to the international standard International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 14001:2004, Environmental management systems – Requirements with guidance for use (ISO 14001:2004). HPMC OMS operations that can affect the environment (environmental aspects) are identified and evaluated. Significant environmental aspects and their associated environmental impacts are then controlled and monitored. HPMC OMS has identified its significant environmental aspects as Biohazard Waste Generation and Management and Solid Waste Generation and Management.
The primary point of contact for the EMS is Lynn Serrato, 509-373-3144.
