Today's competitive business environment poses a wide range of challenges to successful quality, safety, and environmental management systems. While many organizations create their management systems based on the requirements of their respective areas, integrating management systems provides the most effective solution to the challenges these organizations face. Integrated Management Systems: Leading Strategies and Solutions assists readers in the successful integration of their safety, quality, and environmental management systems. Using examples taken from a wide and diverse range of business situations, authors Terri Andrews and Wayne Pardy weave together a management system roadmap that can be used by any HSEQ practitioner, from the beginner to the seasoned industry professional. This book explores the many different management system options currently available, examines the requirements of the various management systems, explains the differences and similarities in the various approaches to management systems, and suggests practices and tools to help managers implement an integrated approach in order to reduce redundancies, streamline processes, and optimize resources. It includes an in-depth analysis of corporate culture and behavioral factors that affect management systems, and it employs a wide range of practical examples that any safety, quality, and environmental management practitioner can relate to. This book benefits health, safety, environmental management, and quality management practitioners and professionals, especially those who design and implement systems for the successful management of their safety and environmental performance, and for quality management requirements, customer service, and customer satisfaction.
