We are dedicated to producing a quality product and services, which continue to satisfy the needs and requirements of our customers and interested parties including Legal, Regulatory and other requirements, and to the protection and care of the environment, in so far as we can responsibly expect to exact an influence. To this end the Environmental Policy is reviewed at the Management Review to ensure its continuing suitability and effectiveness, and to ensure it remains appropriate to the purpose, scale, nature and impact of the company’s activities including prevention of spillages, pollution, damage to fauna, its products and services.
We are totally committed to meeting requirements and to continual improvement at all levels and within all function of the company, and this commitment is consistently achieved through the implementation and maintenance of our Environmental Management System which satisfies all the requirements of ISO 14001: 2004 and any relevant environmental legal, regulatory, corporate, customer or other obligations & requirements to which the company subscribes. This evidence by documented procedures, objectives and results, is maintained by a system of Internal Audits, an annual Management Review, and independent audits by recognised bodies which may include our customers themselves.
Environmental Objectives and Targets will normally be set as a result of the Management Review or actions arising from this policy and will be communicated to the individuals concerned as per the documented procedure in the Environmental Manual. Corporate environmental objectives will be communicated through the Oakleafe Property Services Ltd. management structure. Specific environmental objectives can also be assigned through results of internal audits, changes in applicable legislation or customer/interested party requirements, or as part of the ongoing continual improvement programme. All environmental objectives and targets are documented and reviewed.
Current overall Environmental Objectives and Targets include an energy monitoring and reduction programme, monitoring of spillages and discharges, recycling and environmental awareness campaigns.
Our procedures ensure compliance with all the requirements to which the company subscribes. It is a mandatory condition of employment that all employees follow the appropriate procedures at all times. Any neglect of this condition will be treated with the utmost seriousness and can lead to disciplinary measures.
The development, training and awareness of our personnel are a major factor in the understanding, implementation and maintenance of the system.
Ultimate responsibility for the Environmental Management System is that of the MD (Mr L Goodwin) but care of the environment is the responsibility of everyone in the organisation. In recognising the importance of the environmental Management System the company has appointed a Management Representative (J. Goodwin) who has responsibility and authority for all matters pertaining to the system elements. It is the responsibility of Oakleafe Property Services Ltd. to provide adequate and appropriate resources to implement this policy.
This policy has been defined by the senior management of Oakleafe Property Services Ltd., and has been communicated, understood and implemented throughout the organisation as per the documented procedure in the Environmental Management System manual. Both the policy and a listing of our current environmental significant effects, and their status, are available to interested parties and the public on request from reception.
