An integrated management system (IMS) combines all related components of a business into one system for easier management and operations. Safety, Quality and Environmental management systems are often combined and managed as an IMS.
These systems are not separate systems, rather they are integrated with linkages so that similar processes are seamlessly managed and executed without duplication. Integrated management systems will have a positive impact on specific management system components and outcomes such as improvements in quality, safety, risk, environment and productivity
Integrated Management System
This approach builds Client confidence to manage strategic, operational and task level risks in a holistic manner integrated across disciplines such as:
- Food Safety
- Human health
- Animal Welfare
One of the top benefits of implementing multiple management system standards is being able to align the standards to find common or single management system components. These may include policies, objectives, processes or resources. For example, you may be able to have a single procedure for training, document control management reviews, internal audits or improvements. When you implement more than one standard at a time you are able to find these similarities which can save your organisation a great amount of time, and in return money.
When applied to other parties this approach enables a practical, efficient and effective process to gain confidence across individual sectors and their intersecting supply chain such as:
- Construction and Installation of works and supporting works
- Mining, extraction and quarrying
- Transport, sending and receiving – road | rail | sea | air
- Manufacture, prefabricated or components
- Food production and food ingredients
- Health care and pharmaceutical
- Print and packaging
