ISO 9001 and ISO 45001 are uniquely constructed management system Standards designed with businesses in mind.
Uniform structures make them a perfect fit for cooperation while their simple language means that team members of all levels will know what they need to do.
As a result, it’s even easier for you to drive continual improvement across a range of critical areas - without unnecessary effort.
An Integrated Management System is a set of pre-defined processes and procedures that help businesses achieve best practice when it comes to managing quality, their environmental impact, occupational health and safety, and more.
Combining two or more ISO management system Standards into one common system boosts the efficiency of your processes and makes them easier to manage. It also means there will be greater output through fewer processes, ensuring that your internal resources are always used in the best possible way.
By combining these ISOs into a single documented and managed system, changes and improvements are easier to adopt and understand throughout your business, minimising any negative impacts further down the line.
By reducing the time it takes to manage compliance across a range of areas and employing just one IMS manager, you can take control of excellence and enhance deliverability.
You will also gain control of your compliance 24/7 through our digital management system platform, QMS Connect. This comes with the additional benefits of built-in document controls, digital templates and automated task management.
The ISO for quality has plenty in common with the ISO for occupational health and safety when it comes to systems and structures. To achieve them you must show how you intend to improve, implement operations to measure and improve your management system, and both monitor and evaluate your business practices.
Here are some key comparisons and contrasts between the two.Comparison table
