Advantages

Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises achieve substantial benefits by implementing the Environmental, Quality, and Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems. Having taken the decision to implement the Management Systems, companies need precise and understandable information about the practical nature of the ISO EMS, QMS, and OHSAS Management Systems. Usually, companies in particular are often unsure just how to get started, which is why they call in the expertise of a consultant. The consultant would help them to explain clearly how their business can implement the Management Systems, so the process is not a series of hurdles but rather a set of practical steps towards raising environmental and business performance.

Companies need both: to keep up with the Occupational Health and Safety Act and Regulations under the Act and to implement the Environmental Management System or Quality Management System in order to provide continuous improvement for the businesses and continuous professional and personal growth for people. The definition of the Environmental Management System ISO 14001:2004 claims that the system should be a part of the way your business is operated, and commitments to continual improvement and pollution prevention are key parts of the EMS. The Environmental Management standard, which is properly implemented and used, becomes a great foundation for process improvement and your sustainability program that never operated separately from the environmental management, health and safety.

Usually, there are different consultants that provide advice on Occupational Health and Environmental Management, which means an additional huge cost for the companies. Moreover, even when a company invites a consulting professional, the consultant just visits the company, provides a presentation, and describes problems that the company faces and the ways the problems may be overcome, leaving all the load of the actual work on the managers of the company. The managers have usually time restrictions and have graduated from different fields, and that is why, they have challenges to follow the consultant's recommendations. What makes the Environmental Integrity Consulting different, however, that we offer to stay with our client's company for the full work days for the time of the contract and to provide the research, create Gap Analysis for the project, complete Risk Assessment, develop the documentation, check the compliance with the Occupational Health and Safety Act, and educate people. Such offers are really beneficial for your company.

The Environmental Management System provides the foundation and the means for making sustainability part of the way your business is run in each and every area, from top management to the people on the plant floor. When your company makes the operations improvements by planning and implementing the ISO Quality, Environment, Health and Safety Management Systems, then such implementations create a demand for the continual improvement needed by the organization. Those companies, which consider building these management systems as their first priorities and orders of their businesses, use operational risk management to prioritize the risks and select opportunities for improvement. Such companies put the sustainability programs in place to deliver the improvements by using employee involvement and firm action plans. Also, their sustainability and improvement programs are always well thought out and carefully managed.

The Environmental, Quality, Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems shall be started sooner rather than later when you are looking for ways to squeeze dollars out of the operating budget. In most cases, the implementation of the management standards is paid by using the money saved in your sustainability program, and more and more often, companies that really want process improvement to take a place in their businesses, make a decision to learn about the benefits of the management systems because they realize these practices exceedingly benefit their companies.
