We are thrilled to be able to offer this added electronic functionality to our very successful ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 publications.
North Vancouver, B.C., Canada (PRWEB) November 19, 2014
Specialty Technical Publishers, premier North American publisher of audit, compliance and risk solutions, today announced the release of a free online gap analysis for ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001.
Organizations, both domestic and international, must meet many environmental and health and safety responsibilities. They must comply with the applicable laws and regulations to protect their employees and external stakeholders, and to meet their own internal policy objectives.
Specialty Technical Publishers produces ISO 14001 (Environmental Management Systems) and OHSAS 18001 (Heath and Safety Management Systems) guides that are a must for any organization that is developing management systems to ensure ongoing compliance and improve overall environmental, and health and safety performance.
ISO 14001 Environmental Management Systems: A Complete Implementation Guide is designed to help users successfully implement effective and efficient Environmental Management Systems (EMS) based on ISO 14001. The implementation of ISO 14001 not only enables facilities and companies to improve their overall environmental performance but also flattens the path towards compliance with national and state regulations. In this guide, each ISO 14001 clause is accompanied by case studies and sample content to assist in the implementation process.
18001 Health and Safety Management Systems: A Complete Guide to OHSAS and VPP Implementation is designed to help develop an Occupational Health and Safety Management System (OH&S-MS) that conforms to OHSAS 18001 and/or OHSA VPP.
With a well-implemented OH&S-MS in place, costs related to disability, lost production hours or liability should be substantially reduced. This guide leads the user through the development of an OH&S-MS and 18001 certification and VPP registration processes, but also gives an overview on ANSI/AIHA Z10-2012 and CSA-Z1000-06.
To complement these guides STP has now launched an online version of its gap analysis to further assist users in meeting ISO/OHSAS requirements.
The gap analysis helps users:
- View the relevant ISO/OHSAS guidelines.
- Follow the ISO/OHSAS certification and compliance criteria, laid out in the Gap Analysis.
- Produce a summary of any compliance gaps in the existing Management Systems.
- Create a corrective action plan to improve compliance performance.
The gap analysis is part of STP’s Audit Suite of tools designed to make EHS auditing easier.
STP’s Audit Suite tools allow the user to:
- Easily identify the regulations that apply to the audit.
- Add, customize, and assign importance scores to audit questions based on the organization.
- Create and share audit templates across facilities (or across the organization).
- Build a results report with STP Xcelerator that can be distributed electronically and/or filed.
- Simply and accurately record audit data to show due diligence.

The Guides have worked extremely well in paper and PDF formats through the years and we are confident that audit professionals will find this gap analysis a practical and cost-effective tool.”
