INTEGRATED MANAGEMENT SYSTEM (IMS) – QMS,FSMS,OHAS & EMS
An Integrated Management System (IMS) integrates all of an organization’s systems and processes in to one complete framework, enabling an organization to work as a single unit with unified objectives.
Organizations often focus on management systems individually, often in silos and sometimes even in conflict. A quality team is concerned with the QMS, often an EHS manager handles both Environmental and Health and Safety issues, etc.
An Integrated Management System is relevant to any organization, regardless of their market. Integrating several management systems into a unified system (who share documentation, policies, procedures and processes) makes sense.
An ideal candidate will have been using one or more management systems and are contemplating the introduction of other systems into their systems.
Benefits of an Integrated Management System:
An Integrated Management System can benefit your organization through increased efficiency and effectiveness, and cost reductions while minimizing the disruption caused by several external audits. It also shows your commitment to increased performance, employee and customer satisfaction, and continuous improvement.
With an integrated management system, you work together, with each function aligned behind a single goal: improving the performance of the entire organization. Instead of silos, you have a coordinated effort which is greater than the sum of its parts and is not only more efficient but more effective. An integrated system provides a clear, uniform image of your entire organization, how they impact each other, and the associated risks. Efficiency is gained from less duplication, and it becomes easier to adopt new systems in future.
An IMS allows your management team to create one system that can help to effectively and efficiently deliver your organization’s objectives. From managing employees’ needs, to monitoring risks and hazards, from reducing inefficiencies and maximizing resources, an integrated approach can help you achieve your objectives.
