    Hello everyone.
    Please advise in this topic
    In a 9001 system, then integrating a 18001, what issues can share between them?
    What can exist as a unit and can be used for both systems?
    The idea is to certify both.
    Maybe policy, scope, control of documents, audits, management reviews?
    Thanks for your help

    Isn't there a matrix in the back of either standard that shows alignment? If not, it's an easy Google search.

    Good day @Qualmx
    As you likely know, OHSAS 18001 has now been replaced with ISO 45001. I recently helped a company write and establish their ISO 45001 system. We fully integrated it with their ISO 14001 system, which worked quite well. In regards to their QMS, contrary to my council they wanted to keep much of it "separate", but we did integrate in regards to 7.5 (documented information), 10.2 (corrective action), 10.3 (continuous improvement).

    Other areas that could be easily fully integrated with the QMS are 4- (COTO); 7- (support) 9- (performance evaluation).

    Hope this helps.

    Be well.

    There's no point. OSHAS 18001 is obsolete

    Due to the high level structure of management systems’ standards, I believe, there’s a lot where organizations can implement integration from clauses 4 to 10. More importantly, organizations should examine their already established business processes and integrate the requirements of the standards they subscribe to (e.g. use the existing management meeting as the venue for reviewing the suitability, adequacy and effectiveness of their QMS, EMS and OHSMS).

    I have seen points of direct integration for both OHSAS 18001, 4.4.6 and ISO 45001, 7.1: For infrastructure, that which can harm people may also harm product. In this regard, OHSAS 18001 is not yet obsolete (its scheduled obsolescence is coming due in March 2021, by which time organizations who are already certified to BS OHSAS 18001 will need to upgrade to ISO 45001).
    • Infrastructure that transports product. Forklifts, cranes and hoists that directly handle product are subject to requirements that address the equipment's' readiness. ISO 9001:2015 refers to "transport" in its requirements for infrastructure in 7.1. ISO 45001 requires controls in 7.1 and 8.1, in part due to regulator (relevant interested party) requirements of 4.2.
    • Workplace environment referred to in 7.1.4 of ISO 9001:2015 is specifically explained in the NOTES, which include references to the same physical conditions that could impact both product and people at the same time. 7.1.4 NOTES go on to include some controversial "soft" considerations relating to employee well being, which ISO 45001 cites in 6.1.2.1a).
    Management processes can seamlessly integrate. Examples include HR, Document Control, Internal Audits and Corrective Action, Contractor Control/Purchasing, and Management Review.

    Thanks Jenni
    Policy, objectives, Scopes , certificate, risks methods,,could also be shared or separated?.
    Documentation code, is it recommended to keep them different?
    E.g. pro-opur-56, pro-qsal-34, where. O in first example means oshas and in second, q means quality?
    Please give feedback
    Thanks

    Good day @Qualmx ;
    Ultimately only you and your organization can make these determinations. Here is my council for how to determine.

    If there would/will be redundancy within the documentation your organization’s management system needs, then integrate. If not, then consider that clause/aspect as potentially unique /autonomous for the respective system.

    Integrate as much as feasible.
    Remember to keep it scaleable (is ISO 45001 or some other system in your organization’s future??)

    Key point: avoid redundancy

    Hope this helps.

    Be well

    You are talking about the things which don't matter (as much) as the real issue, which is can the organization's culture sustain integration. You can "mechanically" fit the requirements together, but does the management approach to doing quality and safety TOGETHER fit? That's the important thing.

    Does pro-opur-56 mean an OHS procedure in purchasing and pro-qsal-34 mean a QMS procedure in sales? Both procedures have titles which can provide better identification and description, why don't you just drop the "o" and "q" to reduce the length of the code? Or you can do away with the code if it confuses you.

    I have seen quality procedures with a section addressing safety controls. In this way, documentation integration for users can be possible.

    Some processes, such as internal audit, can apply to both with few differences.

    Some documents will be specific to safety, which is okay. You can name them differently in whatever method is comfortable for you.

    Policy is not a seamless integration. Listen to Andy: it is more important that the management approach to doing quality and safety fit together.
