What is an ISO Management System?

A management system is a way in which an organization manages the interrelated parts of its business in order to achieve its objectives. These objectives can relate to a number of different topics, including product or service quality, operational efficiency, environmental performance, health and safety in the workplace and many more.

The level of complexity of the system will depend on each organization’s specific context. For some organizations, especially smaller ones, it may simply mean having strong leadership from the business owner, providing a clear definition of what is expected from each individual employee and how they contribute to the organization’s overall objectives, without the need for extensive documentation. More complex businesses operating, for example, in highly regulated sectors, may need extensive documentation and controls in order to fulfil their legal obligations and meet their organizational objectives.

Why might I need a Management System?

Home working is becoming increasingly popular both for employees and employers. Employers benefit from the cost savings of offices and facilities, employees benefit from flexible working and not having to commute to work everyday, saving them valuable time and money. Although the ‘home office’ is within the employees home, they are still ‘at work’. All employers have a duty of care to their employees wherever they may be working. Home working, by it’s very nature is remote meaning employers have difficulty ensuring the safety and wellbeing of their employees whilst they are at work. A happy and healthy employee is a productive employee.

What problems might people working from home encounter?

ISO 9001 – Quality management standards to help work more efficiently and reduce product failures.

ISO 14001 – Environmental management standards to help reduce environmental impacts, reduce waste and be more sustainable.

ISO 45001 – Health and safety standards to help reduce accidents in the workplace.
