Integrated Management System Requirements – ISO 9001, ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001

Quality management is a crucial element for any organization regardless of the industry it belongs to. Most of the aware organizations today, for better quality management, prefer the implementation of integrated management system (IMS). Why it is so? This is because an Integrated Management System can benefit your organization through increased efficiency, increased effectiveness, and reduced costs. It also ensures minimization of the hitches caused by some external audits.

What are the requirements for an Integrated Management System?

Integrated management systems can be implemented by ensuring EQHSMS certifications. EQHSMS documents  and certifications mean nothing else but integration of ISO 9001:2015, ISO 14001:2015 and OHSAS 18001:2007 standards.

ISO 9001:2015

ISO 9001 is the international standard published by International Organization for Standardization (ISO). This standard specifies requirements for a quality management system (QMS) in an organization.

ISO 14001:2015

ISO 14001 is also an international standard providing a framework that an organization can follow, rather than establishing environmental performance requirements.

OHSAS 18001:2007

OHSAS 18001 is an internationally applied British Standard. It is applied for occupational health and safety management systems. The standard is applicable to all kinds of organizations.

Coming back to EQHSMS, it is an integrated management system that combines all the above listed three standards. EQHSMS ensures the implementation of proper Quality, Environmental, Occupational Health and Safety Management System on the basis of requirement of ISO 9001:2015, ISO 14001:2015 and OHSAS 18001.
