Today's business needs are changing rapidly. Everywhere you look, companies are trying to do more with less while simultaneously striving to do it better (continual improvement).   The problem is, what worked well in the past is no longer enough. The world is pushing for greener solutions, improved efficiency, and increased sustainability. Moreover, government regulations are getting tighter, customers are placing more requirements on their suppliers, and the consumer population is demanding more assurances than ever before.  How can you address these changing requirements fully, cost effectively, and efficiently?

Envision your future

Your organization may become fully integrated as shown below:

Quality Management System

A Quality Management System (QMS) documents the structure, responsibilities and procedures required to set your organization up for continual performance and quality improvement.  All QMS meet a standard called ISO 9001:2000/9001:2008.  This standard is implemented globally and helps businesses maximize customer satisfaction at the lowest overall cost. 

Environmental Management System

An Environmental Management System (EMS) is used to identify and control the environmental impact of your organization’s activities, products or services.  It will give you a framework for you to implement environmental policies and plans.  The standard used for an EMS is ISO 14001.  Compliance to an ISO 14001 will allow you to meet compliance issues at the local, state and national levels. 

Occupational Health and Safety Management System

Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems (OHSMS) helps you produce a safe and healthy working environment.  This system will enable you to foresee potential health and safety risks, prevent accidents, and improve your organization’s performance.  The standard for an OHSMS has been updated to BS OHSAS 18001:2007 in order to facilitate integration with a QMS and EMS.

Lean Sigma

Lean is simply a technique or methodology focused on providing the best value to your customer while using minimal resources.  The process streamlines the development of products and services and eliminates waste.  Moreover, it will reduce defects in your products and services.  Implementing Lean Sigma shifts your organization’s conventional operations into more efficient and value-oriented activities.  There are numerous tools that assist you in achieving a Lean Sigma organization.
