  • 4.1 General Requirements

    Purpose

    The purpose of this section is to state the intent of our Environmental Management System to ensure it complies with the requirements of the ISO 14001 standard.

    Scope

    Small Parts, Inc., a world-class manufacturer of precision press and slide-formed metal stampings and related assemblies, recognizes that the protection of the environment and human health is an integral part of doing business today. In support of this principle, SPI is committed to doing our part by implementing a system to help guide and ensure the requirements are met. We use the ISO 14001 standard to create a system and a manual that will ensure success as well as continual improvement. In this manual you will find the processes and procedures we use to fulfill all of our requirements whether compliance, conformance, or continual improvement.

    4.2 Environmental Policy

    Small Parts is committed to preventing pollution, complying with applicable legal and other requirements by setting objectives and targets that will provide continual improvement.
    4.3 Planning

    4.3.1 Environmental Aspects

    Purpose

    The purpose of this section is to establish, implement, and maintain a procedure identifying the environmental aspects of our activities, products, and services, within the defined scope of the EMS, that we can control and/or influence taking into account planned or new developments, or new or modified activities, products, and services. The procedure determines those aspects that have or can have significant impact(s) on the environment. The significant environmental aspects are taken into account when establishing, implementing, and maintaining the EMS and they are documented.

    Procedure

    Environmental aspects are determined during periodic audits. After environmental aspects have been established, the audit team will meet to determine the impact of each aspect. The impacts will then be prioritized and significant impacts will be determined. Significant Impacts are determined by the use of the Aspects Assessment –Pollution formula. The formula is: ((Interested Parties + Legal + Quantity + Possible Damage + Cost) x (Containment + Human Control + Monitoring + Frequency + Incidents and Complaints) divided by 25 = Significance of impacts. Each category is assigned a value of 1,2 or 3. With 1 being low and 3 being high. After the Significance of impacts is calculated, it is compared to the SPIL Significance Designator. If this Impact is greater than the SPIL Significance Designator, then that environmental aspect becomes an SPIL impact. Using this formula brings a systematic approach to establishing impacts.
    Top management determines from the SPIL Impacts list, which are to be considered significant aspects and need to have programs associated with them.
    To address employee and external concerns, Concerns can be given to management. Tickets submitted to the management will be reviewed during the production meeting. If the aspect is not listed on the Aspect list, then the Safety and Environmental Committee will determine the aspects significant impact.
    Criteria to determine significance are based upon three factors: safety, legal compliance, and prevention of pollution - in that order of priority.

    Responsibilities

    Top management will determine environmental aspects, impacts and the significance of those impacts.
