need to be clear about the words 'activity', 'aspects',
and 'impacts', and how they relate with each other.
They are key words in ISO 14001 and replace words like "hazards"
and "effects" that we used to use.
activity is what your organisation is doing. There
are many activities that go to make up of the overall process
in the organisation. Activities include making anything, servicing,
maintenance, painting, and cleaning.
for aspects/impacts reminder
aspect is any part of an organisation's activities,
products, or services, that has the ability to interact with
any part of the environment - land, air, water, and living
aspect is the part of the process or activity that starts
to interact with any part of the environment. It has
the potential to impact. It is
the interface between work and the environment.
