EMS Workshops for State Officials

Organization(s) Massachusetts Dept. of Environmental Protection
Project Description In the fall of 2002 MA DEP completed a series of workshops designed to encourage the use of Environmental Management Systems in state programs and municipalities. These EMS workshops were conducted as a result of a grant from EPA under its National Performance Tract Program. Using this grant, DEP conducted a total of 12 training sessions, targeting its own employees, other environmental agencies, state agencies subject to the Massachusetts "Clean State" Executive Order, and municipal personnel. The Department emphasized the introduction of EMS concepts, the DEP's new "Guidance on Incorporating EMS into Enforcement Negotiations and Settlements," and a live tour of a state facility where an EMS is under development. In the fall of 2002, advanced EMS training was provided to staff and managers that instruct field staff and oversee EMS-related enforcement responses.
