SHEQ stands for Safety, Health, Environmental & Quality. It is the integration of ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001 and ISO 9001, enabling organisations to develop a single Integrated Management System (IMS).
It covers the main elements of Occupational Health & Safety Management, Environmental Management and Quality Management. With a SHEQ Management System, duplication of procedures and processes to comply with the above standards can be eliminated. The IMS, however, can also include other quality management systems such as ISO 22001. SHEQ thus helps organisations to minimise their costs and management efforts related to compliance with international standards.
