Integrated Management System Training A Perfect Fit For SMEs

Safety consultants in Brisbane are reporting a growing move towards integrated management system training, as businesses explore the best way to keep up with new legislation.

With an increased focus on workplace health and safety, following a worrying number of tragic deaths this year, SMEs are discovering that safety management system training helps them keep on top of legislation, and saves time and money in the long run.

Globally, over 6300 people die each day from work-related accidents or diseases - that’s nearly 2.3 million every year. In Australia alone, there have been 22 workplace deaths since the start of the year.

Keeping stakeholders happy

To try and help businesses put better procedures and systems in place to avoid this, and improve the health and safety of all their stakeholders, there are several ISO safety management systems.

The most commonly used are OHSAS 18001 and AS/NZS 4801.

An integrated management system - or IMS - combines all the related elements of a business - including safety - into one, for better management and smoother operation.

The most popular components to integrate are workplace health and safety, the environmental management, and quality.

Beneficial to small businesses

Integrated management system training is particularly beneficial for small to medium-sized businesses, who often struggle to keep up with the ever growing demands of news laws and red tape.

We all know that SMB owners wear many hats, and constantly juggle their time between working in, and working on the business - as well as trying to maintain some form of family life.'

Integrated management system training will show them how they can better combine their responsibilities, get more out of their staff and save time and money.

By incorporating these standards into their procedures, they will also find it opens the door to new customers, and new opportunities, such as supplying larger companies.
