An environmental management system according to ISO 140021 was implemented and certified for the Bascoup workshop of Infrabel. Within the framework of certification process a complete energy audit has been performed and high potential energy efficiency measures have been identified and implemented. Main improvements included the reinfored insulation of the workshop buildings, the introduction of high output lighting and the improvement of the energy management of the buildings. The approach also put a strong emphasis on involving personnel and raising their awareness through training and competence management.
