-- The Benefits of ISO 14001 Certification For Oil and Gas Suppliers
Operating in the oil and gas industry requires owners and managers to be informed about environmental regulations to ensure compliance. Staying aware of these regulations gives businesses the opportunity to stay ahead of the competition by adjusting operations to avoid being audited or even fined by regulatory agencies. QUALACO is a leading expert in providing companies with ISO certification services.
The Impact of Environmental Regulations on Oil and Gas Companies
Environmental agencies on the state and federal levels require companies to comply with regulations to reduce the impact that these businesses have on the environment. Oil and gas companies are particularly targeted by these agencies because of the nature of operations including fracking, drilling, construction and manufacturing.
Failing to comply with regulations often results in hefty fines. While financial penalties can negatively impact a company, the press surrounding a failure to comply with environmental regulations can cause even more harm. Companies that are able to organize and implement an environmental management system that works efficiently are able to stay ahead of their competitors to enjoy long-term success.
An Overview of ISO 14001
ISO 14000 is a method of implementing an environmental management system in order to keep companies organized when it comes to complying with complex regulations. Certification in ISO 14000 teaches companies how to analyze their operations to minimize their impact on the environment. Compliance with environmental regulations is the foundation of the ISO 14000 standards.
ISO 14000 contains several standards that cover the different aspects and impacts of maintaining environmental compliance. These standards guide companies through planning, implementing, analyzing and changing the management system as needed to adjust when regulations shift.
The Benefits of ISO 140000 Certification
- Increases efficiency in environmental compliance
- Reduces operating costs
- Improves communication about environmental standards within the company
- Allows oil and gas companies to improve their public image
- Reduces liability associated with environmental aspects of running an oil and gas company
