Abstract

Various organisations have responded to the implementation of separate management systems (ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001). The objective of this paper is to evaluate the effectiveness of the integrated management system (IMS) implementation by organisations in Malaysia. A total of 30 organisations which had gained certification for quality, environment and occupational safety and health from SIRIM QAS Limited were selected as respondents. Questionnaires were distributed to the respondents and the results were generated in the form of percentage to determine the effectiveness index and regression test of the responding organisations. The results showed that 77% of the respondents agreed that with the implementation of IMS the organisation could guarantee a better environment, 77% agreed that the organisation could ensure the health and safety at work, 93% agreed that the organisation could achieve the objectives of the targeted environment, 97 % agreed that the organisation would achieve the targeted objectives of occupational health and safety and all the respondents agreed that the organisations were more cost effective than using separate systems. 90% of the organisations agreed that management commitment is higher compared to the implementation of a separate system. The average index of the effectiveness of the IMS implementation in the organisation is 0.77. The value of this index indicates that it is more effective by implementing IMS in the organisation compared to the separate management system.
