Environmental Management Systems (EMS) Template for Aggregate Producers (updated to conform with revisions to ISO 14001 that occurred in 2005)
NSSGA's popular EMS Template for Aggregate Producers has been updated to conform with revisions to ISO 14001 that occurred in 2005. Four of the modules have been updated and a new one on Compliance Evaluation has been added. The NSSGA EMS template was created to provide producer members with a written framework that can be used in sections or in its entirety to develop a voluntary EMS program. This template is merely one approach that aggregate producers might want to consider when formulating and developing an effective and comprehensive environmental management program for their operations. This template takes the form of modules so that each producer member can choose the individual modules and adapt them, as appropriate, to best fit their company's needs and stated environmental goals and principles.
