Organizations are increasingly implementing multiple management systems that address quality, the environment, and occupational health & safety. Combining these systems into a single Integrated Management System helps companies avoid overlapping, redundant activities, as well as save money, time and resources. Although integration tends to focus on quality, health & safety, and the environment, it can also include a variety of other complimentary international standards.
“Integration” of different management systems can be done on different scales – from the simple cross-training of auditors and combination of audit activities, to the combination of documentation, objectives, targets and other activities and processes. We can help with training & consulting related to:
- Understanding System Requirements (ISO 9001, ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001, etc.)
- Auditing Skills
- Auditing by Process
- Problem Solving & Continual Improvement
Public and on-site courses are offered across Canada, covering a variety of Management Systems (ISO 9001, ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001, etc.), Auditing Skills, Problem Solving & Continual Improvement, Process Improvement and more. Learn the fundamental requirements of one or more management system, or gain the skills to integrate, audit and improve those systems.
