iso14001 recertification
During early October, Benchmark Certification visited
Anglesea for a week long recertification audit of our
ISO14001 accredited Environmental Management
System. The end result being that Anglesea maintained
its certification with only seven observation findings
raised during the audit. There were no non-conformances
identified. The audit also reviews the audit findings from
the previous surveillance audit conducted 12 months
prior and assesses whether they have been addressed.
We initially received ISO14001 certification in 2002 and
this audit was the required three yearly ‘major audit’ of
the location’s entire environmental management system
(EMS), including the off-site monitoring of Sulphur
Dioxide and the co-management of the Anglesea Heath.
A number of personnel were interviewed during the audit,
including Talis Steele, Chris Rolland, Nick Brockman,

December to January
Did you know:
This species was found in our 2006 mine
rehabilitation area in the 5 year reassessment.
Not known in this region, even as a weed, it’s
appearance is somewhat of a surprise. It has
cream coloured flowers which is its only
distinction from the pure-white flowers of the
indigenous Leptospermum continentale (which
is flowering at the same time).
Nicci Marris, Elise Jeffery, Maryann Thorp, Bryce Hutton,
Graham Nixon and Robyn Lucas and our control room
operators. Barry La Fontaine found all employees
cooperative, enthusiastic and willing to provide
information. .
Barry made seven observation findings including, but not
limited to, the Anglesea Emergency Plan and Emergency
Procedures,
what

an
‘emergency’,
improvements to the description of Environmental
Hazards within the Work Planning Form for clarification
for non-experts and several items related to a detailed
discussion about the Aspects and Impacts Register.
In addition to these findings, the auditor's assessment is
that APS rates as excellent in this Australian industry
practice for community relations.
