QISS Environmental Management System
The need to take action and comply with Environmental regulations makes it necessary to have a strong Management System that has the backbone and muscle of the QISS System.
An offshore oil rig in California fouled beaches with millions of gallons of spilled oil. Near Cleveland, Ohio, the Cuyahoga River, choking with chemical contaminants, had spontaneously burst into flames. People would not swim in Lake Erie one of the largest lakes on this earth. Fish were dying. These and other scenarios were commonplace in the USA and the world.
In early 1970, as a result of heightened public concerns about deteriorating city air, natural areas littered with debris, and urban water supplies contaminated with dangerous impurities, President Richard Nixon took steps to turn the trend of deterioration into a trend of improvement. It was a complex and daunting task. He succeeded in creating the EPA (US Environmental Protection Agency) on December 2, 1970 to consolidate in one agency a variety of federal research, monitoring, standard-setting and enforcement activities to ensure environmental protection. Since its inception, EPA has been working for a cleaner, healthier environment for the American people.
Just two examples of success: Witness the Cuyahoga river and Lake Erie, which by early 1980s had returned to people enjoying the river and the lake. Swimming, fishing.
“ The ultimate test of man’s conscience may be his willingness to sacrifice something today for future generations whose words of thanks will not be heard”. Gaylord Nelson (1916-2005), former governor of Wisconsin, founder of Earth Day
It is hard to make sacrifices, especially when you cannot see the direct correlation. You need to depend on faith in Science, and its systematic and regulated application. This has given rise to Environmental Management Systems, driven mostly by regulations.
