Speaker: Richard Jones, Business Delivery Manager, Compensation & Land, Environment Agency, Warrington

Richard explained that it was possible for companies to develop risk based management systems that met the requirements of more than one accredited management systems such as: Occupational Health and Safety (BS OHSAS 18001 and new 45001), Quality Management (ISO 9001), Environmental Management (ISO 14001), Information Security Management (ISO/IEC 27001), IT Service Management (ISO/IEC 20000), Food Safety Management (ISO 22000), Business Continuity Management (ISO 22301) and the new Asset Management System (ISO55001).

Richard then summarised the benefits of integrated management systems such as less duplication of effort and administration once the integrated system was in place. He emphasised that the planning stage was important and that the integration of more than one system could only be achieved in stages.

He said that the key to success throughout the process was to:

  • Build a compliance jig-saw
  • Plan-Do-Check-Act and
  • Communicate: with standard auditors as well as Directors, managers and staff
