Developing and implementing an effective management system is the foundation for success for companies committed to keeping employees safe, limit their impact on the environment and reduce unnecessary costs from injuries and illnesses in the workplace. An Integrated Management System (IMS) combines all of a business’s policies, processes, and procedures into one unified management framework.
What is included in an IMS?
An IMS can include any number of different systems combined into one easy to follow, unified system. This commonly includes:
Quality Management System (QMS) – ISO 9001 is the internal standard for QMS. This is the most common system for businesses as it demonstrates their ability to consistently provide products and services that meet customer and regulatory requirements.
Environmental Management System (EMS) - ISO 14001 is the international standard for EMS. This provides a framework determining and continuously improving an organization’s environmental position and performance.
Health and Safety Management System (HSMS) – ISO 45001 is the international standard for HSMS. This provides the framework for determining and continually improving an organization’s health and safety position and performance.
What are the benefits of an IMS?
Whether you are interested in creating a management system that can be certified or simply interested in industry-best practice, developing an IMS for your company provides a number of advantages, including:
Optimising management processes and operations
Streamlining tender processes
Optimising use of its resources and reduce costs
Streamlining processes and procedures
Increasing efficiency and avoid duplication
