Any manufacturer not considering the impact of processes and procedures on the environment is also failing to consider the costs of such failings.

The Health & Safety Executive charge £124 an hour for site visits arising from incidents involving trips, slips and falls caused by fluid spills, environmental contamination can not only cost the business dear, it can cost you the business (4 out of 10 small manufacturers will go out of business within 18 months of a serious spill incident) while total incident costs can easily exceed any imposed fines by 10 or 12 times – and when the fines can be in the tens of thousands, that alone should be enough to ensure your Environment Management System is up to scrutiny.
