The March membership meeting will present JOHN GAYFORD from Ford Motor Company of Canada, Oakville Assembly Plant. The topic of presentation is ISO 14001.

To demonstrate to its customers, shareholders, suppliers and workers that the environmental matters are managed responsibly, Ford Motor Company management required its 140 manufacturing plants worldwide to become certified to the ISO-14001 Environmental Management System (EMS).

Ford of Canada Oakville Assembly Plant (OAP) completed ISO-14001 certification in 1996 and this initiative is providing OAP with tangible benefits. The ISO-14001 EMS does require a demanding continuous effort by both the implementers and all other employees.

John Gayford will share his experience to implement ISO-14001 EMS at OAP. He expects that his experience may assist our members in the effort to implement ISO-14001 at their facilities.

JOHN GUYFORD has been the Environmental Coordinator for the Oakville Assembly plant for 15 years. A Mechanical Engineer, originally from Melbourne, Australia, his work experience includes mining and construction, gray iron foundry and presently environment.
