Using a unique system of checklists and a specific site or business activity profile, Scannell’s EHS software automatically identifies relevant legislation and allows these to be tied into management controls, evidence of compliance and compliance-related tasks.

Single or multiple profiles can be set up and maintained by the customer for different areas of the business, contractor control or for multi-national jurisdictions.

ISO 14001, ISO 50001 & OHSAS 18001 (ISO 45001) – LEGAL, EVALUATION, COMPLIANCE

SCANNELL’s EHS Law system aims to help you meet the following requirements of the International Standards ISO 14001 (Environment), ISO 50001 (Energy) & OHSAS 18001 (ISO 45001) (Occupational Safety) in a site specific way:

  • 4.3.2 (Legal & Other Requirements)
  • 4.5.2 (Evaluation of Compliance)

LEGAL & OTHER REQUIREMENTS

Section 4.3.2 of the standards states that an organization must establish and maintain a procedure(s) to identify and have access to applicable legal requirements as well as to other requirements to which the organization subscribes.

This information must be kept up-to-date and is taken into account when establishing, implementing and maintaining its management system.

The LAW module will enable you to easily meet this requirement in a site-specific way, with access to summaries of the legal requirements and full legal texts, and it will always be up to date.

It also interacts with other parts of the system to legal and other requirements are taken into account throughout the management system.

EVALUATION OF COMPLIANCE

Section 4.5.2 of the standards require that “Consistent with its commitment to compliance, the organization shall establish, implement and maintain a procedure for periodically evaluating compliance with applicable legal requirements. The organisation shall keep records of the results of the periodic evaluations”.

Completing this element of the LAW module will outline how the organization complies with requirements under the various Checklist Items. A variety of methods or processes can be used to assess compliance such as:

  • Audits (internal and/or third party)
  • Document or Records Review
  • Facility Inspections and/or Direct Observation
  • Interviews
  • Project or Work Reviews
  • Routine Sample Analysis or Test Results
