The environmental impact assessment describes and evaluates the effects of daily work and processes on the environment. The probability of the threat to the environment plays an overriding role. Legally, the obligation to conduct environmental assessments is laid down in the Environmental Impact Assessment Act.
The use of an environmental impact assessment checklist helps companies to minimise negative impacts on the environment step by step. Based on the checklist, target-oriented environmental impact assessment measures can be easily implemented. Another option is to use an ISO 14001 checklist for an environmental audit and become certified to show the company's environmental performance.
However, the most important sources of water are the mining, manufacturing and construction industries, air and soil pollution. Among the most important aspects contributing to this are the improper disposal of chemicals, the intensive use of air-polluting equipment and machinery, the improper handling of asbestos, the contamination of soil by hazardous substances and industrial noise.
Employers should conduct thorough risk assessments and inspections to develop a good environmental management system and ensure that their company operates in such a way that it causes as little damage to the environment as possible.
An environmental impact assessment guide can be used by risk managers and policy makers to identify and document any non-conformities and potential environmental hazards caused by a company and its employees at an early stage.
The following 3 steps will help you to conduct an environmental impact assessment according to efficient patterns:
In this step, risk managers define the scope of an environmental impact assessment by guideline, identifying what needs to be protected from harm. Here, a site-specific analysis is used to determine where the challenge lies in the environment.
This step involves recording the assessment results and implementing precautionary measures.
The final step involves the regular constant review of the assessment.
Doing an environmental impact assessment with guidance can be a cumbersome process. Lumiform's digital solution allows you to use checklists in digital form for your inspections. This offers many other advantages. For example, all responsible persons can access the respective checklists at any time and from any location. If problems occur and corrective measures become necessary, this can be immediately communicated from the app.
Comprehensive documentation and the collection of evidence on site is very important for this. At the same time, clean and transparent documentation helps to fully comply with the legal framework. Benefit from further advantages with Lumiform:
