Description
Information
Integrated management systems (IMS) are an innovative way of handling the plethora of management functions and procedures that are applied throughout major construction projects. Contracting companies use management systems to shape and define the corporate arrangement of their business activities, translating these into operational procedures for application to the construction projects they undertake. The management of quality, environment, and safety are at the forefront of systems evolution where the integration of these traditionally independent and dedicated standards-based and process-orientated systems can provide the potential to deliver greater organisational efficiency and effectiveness. This is the first textbook to cover each of the international standards for quality, safety and environment (ISO9000, ISO14001 and ISO18001) and to discuss integrating them. This book provides a detailed yet accessible text to support the study of quality, environment, and safety management systems on professionally accredited undergraduate courses throughout the built environment and for advanced postgraduate courses in construction, project, and engineering management. It is also an indispensible reference for construction professionals working for principal contractors, subcontractors and construction industry supply chain organisations.
