In the Fall of 2015, Tavares Group Consulting Inc. was engaged by Bruce Power, the world’s largest nuclear generation facility, to perform a gap analysis between ISO 14001:2004 and ISO 14001:2015, in order to better prepare the organization for their transition to the newly released standard. As a deliverable, Tavares Group Consulting prepared a report outlining the results of the off-site EMS review, including recommendations for revisions to current processes and procedures.
A second phase of the project was completed in April 2016, which included the implementation of various recommendations identified in the gap analysis. Working together with Bruce Power, Tavares Group Consulting revised the organization’s aspect database in order to incorporate new requirements of the standard (e.g. identification of risks, threats and opportunities, life cycle thinking etc.) and various procedural documents to ensure conformance with ISO 14001:2015.
