Name of the tool
Environmental Management System
Who applied the tool in the case?
In Baglan Energy Park Phase II, responsibility for implementation of the EMS lay with the Contract Manager although the Construction Supervisor who was an employee of the Client operated the system on site.
Time taken to fully apply the tool
An EMS is designed to run continually through out a project. Once the initial assessment has taken place a quarterly audit is recommended in order to ensure that the implementation is smooth.
Any other interesting information about the tool
When not implemented correctly, i.e., not sufficiently involving all members of a company, an EMS cannot operate correctly as it requires all areas of a company to be involved. Additional problems arise with EMS implementation if there is a company practice of marginalising environmental issues from core business activities or the main implementer is involved in other major management processes
