Integrated Management Systems
Many organisations are now opting to introduce an integrated management system that meets the requirements of several different ISO standards. A quality management system is a set of policies, processes and procedures required for planning and execution (production, development, service) in the core business area of an organization i.e. areas that can impact the organisation’s ability to meet customer requirements. An integrated management system incorporates ISO 9001 Quality Management Systems, ISO 14001 Environmental Management and OHSAS 18001 Health & Safety Management.
The main advantage of an IMS (Integrated Management System) is that you can run this using one management system, use one set of documentation and run one third party audit. This results in more control of your business, less effort and intern reduced costs.
We are currently working with several forward-thinking businesses who opted to implement an integrated management system instead of traditional single standards.
