Environmental Management System

As an integral part of Jefferson Lab's Integrated Safety Management System (ISMS), the Environmental Management System (EMS) manages risk to the environment in a similar fashion as risk to the workers and public. Like the ISMS, this is achieved by incorporating EMS planning, operational controls, and continual improvement into existing site programs where practical.
