Since 2014, Pollution Prevention Services has hosted 1-day “EMS (Environmental Management Systems) In Depth” workshops for Iowa environmental professionals. Due to popular demand, this workshop series continues and offers another step in the development of your environmental management system.

“EMS In Depth: Aspects/Impacts, Objectives/Targets & Internal Audits” will be will be focused on addressing some of the key foundational elements of your EMS. In the morning we will cover the successful identification of effective Aspects & Impacts and Objectives & Targets. In the afternoon we will cover the importance of the Internal Audit, including preparation, execution and examples. Bring examples of your own successful EMS strategies as well as all your questions. There will be dedicated workshop time for open discussion to share your examples and get tips on how to improve your organization’s EMS. Future workshops in the EMS In Depth series will focus on other identified portions of the EMS process which are determined in part on attendee feedback and requests.
