An integrated ISO 45001 and ISO 45003 management system

Combine the management of physical occupational health & safety with psychological well-being

Create a comprehensive framework of processes designed to protect your workers, both physically and psychologically, with this Integrated Management System.

By incorporating ISO 45001, the Standard for occupational health & safety, with the practical guidelines on psychosocial hazards in ISO 45003, you can create a framework that identifies both physical and psychological risks to your workers and develop processes that can help you to mitigate or remove them.

This creates an even more comprehensive occupational health & safety management system, helping you to keep your staff happy, healthy and safe.


An Integrated Management System is essentially a set of pre-defined processes and procedures that help businesses to achieve best practice.

Handling multiple ISOs in isolation can be inefficient and take up unnecessary time and resources. But by combining more than one ISO into an integrated system, you can tackle common elements all at the same time, freeing you up for other essential business.

ISO 45003 is also a logical extension for ISO 45001, building on the framework of an occupational management system with more specific guidance relating to psychosocial health. The two are therefore ideal partners for an integrated system.

WHY INTEGRATE ISO 45001 & ISO 45003?

ISO 45003 gives guidance on managing psychosocial risks within an occupational health & safety management system and is therefore highly compatible with ISO 45001. By combining the two, you can create a system that can identify and control both physical and psychological risks to your staff. 

Integrating these ISOs creates a single documented and managed system. This allows you to easily implement changes and improvement across your business, minimising the possibility of negative impacts later down the line. 

  • Plan: Owners are clearly defined; leaders take responsibility and processes are documented and well communicated. 

  • Do: Training needs are identified and met, while resources are effectively allocated during operation. 

  • Check: Regular checks are carried out to inspect the system’s effectiveness, with risks and failings identified and documented. 

  • Act: Beneficial improvements are rolled out through the single, integrated system and excellence is achieved through compliance best practice insights.    

You will also gain control of your compliance 24/7 through our online management system platform, QMS Connect. This comes with the additional benefits of built-in document controls, digital templates and automated task management.



With an Integrated Management System, your processes will work together so that each function is aligned and can contribute to one shared goal: improving your overall performance.

Thanks to one set of documentation, policies, procedures and processes for all Standards, you can also reduce risks and increase profitability.

3 Steps to Certification

With the help of QMS, the certification process can take as little as 45 days to complete

    Gap Analysis

    A QMS Consultant will visit your Organisation to review and document your current processes and procedures, highlighting any areas that do not meet the requirements of the Standard.


    Now its time to make sure any required process or procedural changes are made, as highlighted in the Review. QMS can provide templates to assist you in doing this.


    An Auditor must now visit your Organisation to check that the documented processed are being followed and that the necessary changes have been made. Once they are satisfied, you will be rewarded with your certification.

Shaking hands in office

Once you have achieved certification the certification cycle will commence. This is made up of surveillance and re-certification audits, one of which must take place each year, around the anniversary of your certification. These visits confirm your continued compliance with the Standard and verify the validity of your certification.


At QMS we are constantly updating our approach and process to meet the latest changes in how ISO 45001 and ISO 45003 work.
