FORMULATION OF AN EFFECTIVE
ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT PLAN
Presented By
YES Enviro Services Sdn. Bhd
DEFINITION OF ENVIRONMENTAL
MANAGEMENT PLAN
Environmental management can be defined as a systematic
means of managing environmental impacts to meet defined
environmental objectives and targets
Environmental Management Plan (EMP) is a tool or plan of
actions that ensure all potential issues that may likely arise
from the implementation of any developmental project are
adequately address
EMP IN MALAYSIA
 Traditionally, the Department of Environment impose the
need to formulate and submit EMP’s as one of the
conditions of approval for development projects
approved under Section 34A, Environmental Quality Act
1974 whereby an Environmental Impact Assessment
(EIA) study is required for activities outlined under the
Environmental
Quality
(Prescribed
Activities)(Environmental Impact Assessment) Order
1987
 EMP basically translates the EIA approval conditions into
action i.e. what measures will be instituted, when the
actions will be executed etc in order for the project
activities to be in compliance with the EIA approval
conditions for the intended project
 Over the years various agencies both public and private
have adopted the use of EMP as a systematic tool of
managing environmental impacts which requires specific
actions to be taken by the developer and her appointed
consultants and contractors to minimize impacts to the
environment at various stages of project activity
 EMP by nature a living document which has to be
reviewed and updated when certain circumstances
demand changes such as changes in development
components, changes in project details and surrounding
areas or even inadequacy of control measures to comply
to regulatory requirements
OBJECTIVES OF EMP
 To ensure that the intended project conforms to all
requirements and standards specified by the related
government agencies especially those related to the
environment (including safety and health)
 To provide the schedule for environmental monitoring
and surveillance
 To establish the monitoring and reporting procedures at
the various stages of project activity
 To outline the appropriate actions required in response
to findings of the monitoring programs
 To outline the mitigation measures and best
environmental management practice to be adopted
 To outline the event contingency plan or emergency
response plant that will be adopted in cases of abnormal
situations at the various stages of project activities.

ENVIRONMENTAL AUDITING
 Largely practiced by ISO 14001 certified companies and
multinational industrial facilities that are regularly audited
by their corporate environmental auditors
 Represent only a small fraction, less than 10% of
manufacturing industries in Malaysia
 Value of environmental audit as a continuous
improvement tool providing productivity and cost gains
while protecting the environment yet to be appreciated
on a larger scale
 Perception that environmental audit pose negative
impacts on organization by exposing the company to
penalties and imposition of costly changes still strong
amongst organization
 EQA 1974 amended in 1996 to include Section 33A for
the conduct of Environmental Audit
 Presently environmental audit imposed as one of the EIA
approval conditions mainly for industrial activities and
developmental projects subject under Section 34,EQA
 Environmental audit as defined in EQA as:
“ a periodic systematic documented and objective evaluation to
determine: the compliance status to environmental regulatory
requirements;
 the environmental management system; and
 the overall environmental risk of the premises.
SCOPE OF ENVIRONMENTAL AUDITORS FOR
SECOND PENANG BRIDGE
i. Review the Environmental Monthly Report submitted by
contractors based on the following criteria:Compliance with the EIA and Environmental Assessments approval
conditions and implementation of mitigation measures and
monitoring as stated in the EMPs
Methodology, sampling and testing procedures for environmental
monitoring; and
Analysis of the sampling results for environmental monitoring
ii. Conduct site inspection to assess the environmental management
practices adopted in each package focusing on the following
components; Fuel storage and handling;
 Water pollution control;
 Dust control;
 Sewage and sullage water management;
 Waste management ;and
 Signs of open burning
 Observations or NCR’s issued to Contractor for any non
conformity with respect to environmental management or
pollution controls
 Remedial actions have to be taken by Contractor to rectify non
conformance
 Best Management Practices adopted by Contractors in preventing
or controlling potential pollution also highlighted
 Audit findings reported and presented monthly in the SHE meeting
chaired by MHA

P2-02-0511 : Oil spillage at generator set area
Repeated Observation : P2-01-0111
EXAMPLES OF BEST
ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT
PRACTICES
CONCLUSIONS
 EMP’s can be effective in managing environmental issues as shown
in the case of constructing the Second Penang Bridge
 For an effective EMP the following must be in place:
 A clear administrative set up that is committed to execute the
plan of actions with ultimate objective of minimizing impacts to
affected resources
 Routine monitoring, surveillance and benchmarking to
acceptable standards and guidelines
 Consistent reporting to stake holders or regulatory bodies

With such commitments in place the EMP as an action
orientated document as a tool to minimize environmental issues
would have served its purpose
