Easy access environmental management: Implementation of BS 8555 in the construction sector, Phases 1–6 – guidance workbook (C667CD)

The Easy access environmental management package has been developed to help construction companies understand and implement an effective environmental management system.

It includes detailed guidance notes, which have been split into easily managed steps; template documents, that companies can use as the basis of an environmental management system tailored to their specific needs; and a set of top tips, outlining the easiest and most effective ways of achieving the requirements of each stage in the guidance notes.

The package is complemented by a series of CIRIA training workshops (at an additional charge) to help companies put the Easy Aaccess approach into practice.
