Integrated Management Systems

Integrated management systems seem to be the trend these days. They combine Safety, Environment and Quality management so they all fit under one hat. I have worked extensively with the IMS structure as well as individual systems. A good management system will also assist your company in obtaining ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and AS/NZS 4801 accreditation.

Integrated Management Systems

When your WHS, EMS and QMS management systems are designed to complement and reflect each other, the benefits include greater efficiency and reduced costs, and result in a more comprehensive and effective approach to compliance and the accreditation process.

This is because many of the standards that form part of ISO 9001 (Quality Management) are also integral to ISO 14001 (Environmental Management) and AS/NZS 4801 (Health and Safety), and so creating policies and procedures in unison can prevent unnecessary doubling up of documentation and training, and reduce the time needed for implementation.
