ERM Certification and Verification Services

Management systems, and the certification of them can - if approached in the right way - provide extraordinary levels of support to those who are striving to deliver meaningful environmental, health and safety performance improvement. ERM Certification and Verification Services offers a full range of EHS assessment, certification and verification services, including accredited ISO14001, EMAS, OHSAS18001, GHG (EU ETS) and report verification. Our clients choose us because of our focus on EHS performance outcomes and the management techniques, processes and operator behaviours which produce them, rahther than the dry, bureaucratic and document-focussed approach often associated with management systems and certification of them. Because we focus on how organisations get things done in reality - and communicate how it is effectively back to management, our clients achieve rapid and sustained performance improvements, as measured in terms of fewer incidents, better legal compliance, and reduced impacts over time.

Designed for individuals who are excited by the prospect of delivering real change in the way environment, health and safety are managed within their organisations, ERM CVS' training seminars on implementing and auditing management systems provide participants with the means to achieve extraordinary results from their investment in management systems.

ERM CVS sessions tackle head-on, the rising - and justified - concern with traditional approaches to the implementation, auditing and certification of management systems, which recent studies have found deliver little in the way of tangible performance improvement.

All ERM CVS training sessions are highly interactive. Techniques used by the trainers together with a series of thought-provoking case studies interspersed with practical group exercises, maintain very high levels of participant engagement. ERM CVS trainers are selected because of their outstanding abilities to communicate and their substantial practical experience in management systems development, implementation and assessment. Our trainers are all extensively experienced and active in management systems certification.

We receive impressive feedback from delegates who have attended our training courses.

"The course goes beyond training and stirs strong emotion in attendees. A deep yet balanced understanding on environment issues facing business is clearly outlined beyond that detailed in ISO14001." Christopher Bradley - BP Exploration

"I have never attended a course in my 28-year career that made as much of an impact as this course and instructor has. The trainer's passion and enthusiasm for the material was riveting. His weaving of scenarios was mind-blowing." Barbara Nester - BWXT Pantex, LLC

"This was one very fascinating course. The technique of forcing people to see the absurdity of conformance without thought is revolutionary. This course will shift paradigms." - Thomas Vinson, Texas Commission on Environmental Quality

"I found the workshop to be the most inspiring I have ever attended. I am very excited about this course and cannot wait to start to sell it to my colleagues." Julie Clifton, Department of Defence, Australia
