It is important to ensure that relevant responsibilities are understood and that actions should be carried out in a coordinated and efficient way.
Document and Record Control
This generic procedure offers guidance on document and record control at a project level.
Environmental Management Plan
A fully resourced plan to manage potential impacts to the environment should be developed. It is likely that aspects will be known to the project team prior to commencement of the POEMS Process. This procedure should allow the project team to budget, resource tasks that may be required to assess the significance of the impacts from the project and to demonstrate that any significant impacts are minimised or reduced, as far as reasonably practicable.
Impact Priority Evaluation
The procedure provides guidance on how to assess the priority for managing the environmental impact. The aim of this procedure is to assign all the identified impacts to a priority of Low, Medium or High. This will determine which risks and impacts deserve further consideration.
