Additional Information

What is ISO 14001 Changes & Transition Training?

As with all environmental issues, ISO training includes instruction in how to implement changes and gain knowledge of how to adapt the workplace to the transition phase of changes to ISO 14001. However, it is important the designated ISO manager maintain vigilance and up to date workplace records and documentation.

Since ISO standards are reviewed every five years, the newest changes to ISO 14001 place greater importance on leadership roles in business and in environmental strategies and planning by knowledgeable professionals. Thus, transition training is helpful to develop greater levels of leadership experience regarding issues related environmental strategies and planning in the workplace.

The need for transition training is also seen in recent ISO changes that include improvement of environmental performance.

Note that in the U.S., as in many countries, the U.S. EPA encourages implementation of environmental management systems and compliance with ISO.

Although ISO standards are voluntary, environmental agencies in the US and internationally recognize the importance of establishing ISO 14001 standards. These international standards assist in the global effort to focus on important environmental issues.
