MONITORING AND MEASURING PROCEDURE
Purpose and Application
- To establish a process for monitoring and measuring the key characteristics of the university that can have a significant impact on the environment. This procedure applies to the monitoring and measuring of:
- relevant operational controls
- performance to established objectives and target
- future objective and target data
- compliance with relevant environmental legislation and regulation
Definitions and Scope
- It is the university's policy to monitor and measure key characteristics that can have a significant impact on the environment and to meet goals and objectives of the Environmental Management System (EMS).
Roles and Responsibility
- Responsibility is defined in the Monitoring and Measuring Matrix and supporting documents
- Department using monitoring and measuring equipment will ensure that all equipment is calibrated at prescribed intervals and will keep records of calibration
- Monitoring and measuring of legal and other requirements will be carried out as defined in the Monitoring and Measuring Matrix
- Equipment used to perform these activities will be calibrated at defined frequencies and records maintained by the department
- Missouri S&T departments shall routinely monitor their areas for compliance to environmental regulations and to university policies. Departments may use compliance tools, provided by EHS, and/or work directly with EHS if they need assistance.
- EHS shall, at an interval outlined on the EHS Compliance Inspection Schedule, assist the departments with environmental compliance during routine inspections of the campus.
- If a department identifies a non-compliance, they may correct the non-compliance themselves, or contact EHS for assistance. If the non-compliance cannot be easily corrected, the department may request a corrective action using the Corrective & Preventive Action Procedure.
- If a non-compliance is identified by EHS during a routine inspection, EHS may work with the department to immediately correct the non-compliance. If a non-compliance cannot be easily corrected, or the appropriate departmental personnel are not readily available, the Corrective & Preventive Action Procedure will be followed.
- Regulatory reporting requirements are outlined on all applicable permits.
- If a release above the regulatory reportable quantity (RQ) occurs, Missouri S&T shall contact the appropriate regulatory agency, as required.
- Internal and external communication procedures pertaining to the above described process are outlined in the Communication Procedure and Corrective & Preventive Action Procedure
