Quality, Health, Safety and Environmental (QHSE) management systems enable organizations to develop and implement company policies and procedures, incorporate regulatory requirements, industry best practices and other information to help guide the management of quality, safety, health, and environmental matters. Integrated Management Systems can serve any type and size of organization, regardless of industry sector, and accommodate diverse geographical, cultural and social conditions. The success of a management system depends on commitments from all levels and functions of an organization. To obtain organizational commitment to the management system it is essential that top level management endorse, provide necessary resources and promote conformance with the Management System.
Systems of this kind enable organizations to:
- manage risk by identifying hazards, assessing consequences and probabilities, and evaluating and implementing prevention and mitigation measures;
- support a core value that all safety, health and environmental incidents are preventable;
- promote and maintain a work environment in which everyone accepts personal responsibility for their own safety and that of their colleagues;
- achieve commitments across the organization to quality, health, safety, sustainability while also protecting the environment;
- take action as needed to improve performance through continuous improvement and
- instill a culture in which everyone actively intervenes to ensure the safety, security and wellness of each other.
