SENIOR MANAGERS TRAINING FOR USE WITH

DOE O 450.1, ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION PROGRAM

what is an ems
WHAT IS AN EMS?
  • An EMS is a systematic and structured approach for addressing environmental consequences of an organization’s activities, products and services
purpose
PURPOSE
  • Provide Senior Managers with an overview of DOE O 450.1 requirements, including:
    • an understanding of their DOE O 450.1 roles and responsibilities to ensure successful ISMS/EMS implementation
    • guidance on how to implement EMS as part of Integrated Safety Management Systems (ISMS)
why do i have to have an ems
WHY DO I HAVE TO HAVE AN EMS?
  • To improve environmental performance:
    • To meet the requirements of DOE O 450.1, Environmental Protection Program, and
    • Executive Order 13148, Greening the Government Through Leadership in Environmental Management
benefits of an isms ems
BENEFITS OF AN ISMS/EMS
  • Achieve mission goals, reduce costs, improve business practices
  • Improve environmental compliance performance
  • Address stewardship and legacy management issues systematically
  • Improve credibility with regulators and local community
how is doe s ems implementation monitored
HOW IS DOE’s EMS IMPLEMENTATION MONITORED?
  • DOE’s progress toward implementation is reported to the White House Office of the Federal Environmental Executive (OFEE) on an annual basis by the Assistant Secretary for Environment, Safety and Health (EH-1), who also serves as DOE’s Agency Environmental Executive
what are senior managers responsibilities pursuant to doe o 450 1
WHAT ARE SENIOR MANAGERS’ RESPONSIBILITIES PURSUANT TO DOE O 450.1?

Senior managers must:

  • Ensure that all sites under their purview have implemented ISMS/EMS by 12/31/05
  • Request, through their annual Departmental budgetary process, the funding and resources needed to implement DOE O 450.1
integrating ems into isms
INTEGRATING EMS INTO ISMS
  • DOE O 450.1 requires DOE elements to ensure that site ISMSs include an EMS
  • An EMS is that part of ISMS which addresses the environmental consequences of an organization’s products, services and activities
  • In those instances where ISMS is not required for a site, DOE elements must develop and implement a stand-alone EMS
ems frameworks
EMS FRAMEWORKS
  • Several EMS frameworks exist, including ISO 14001, which is the most popular
  • DOE O 450.1 does not require DOE organizations to use ISO 14001 or any specific framework
  • The ISO 14001 framework involves an independent third-party certification
  • DOE O 450.1 allows for EMS self-certification by Program Offices
implementation of isms ems at closure sites
IMPLEMENTATION OF ISMS/EMS AT CLOSURE SITES
  • Closure sites are sites that have ceased operations or have identified near-term closure dates
  • Closure sites are required to implement ISMS/EMS
  • Closure sites can use a graded approach to supplement their existing ISMSs to meet the requirements of DOE O 450.1
  • ISMS/EMSs at Closure sites can serve as the framework for their transition to the Office of Legacy Management and/or for long-term stewardship.
how can i ensure successful implementation of ems as part of isms
HOW CAN I ENSURE SUCCESSFUL IMPLEMENTATION OF EMS AS PART OF ISMS?
  • Communicate your support the ISMS/EMS
  • Provide oversight and training
  • Engage stakeholders
conclusions
CONCLUSIONS
  • ISMS/EMS provides an environmental protection program that ensures early detection of and systematic management of environmental problems
  • Managers can integrate environmental considerations into everyday business processes and mission activities
  • Effective ISMS/EMS implementation can create an organizational culture of superior environmental performance through increased environmental awareness and life cycle accountability for everyone working at DOE sites
