Summary of PSM and Integrated Systems Overview

Following the completion of our PSM Video series, this blog is going to be a summary of what has been discussed and an overview of Integrated Systems.



One aspect of PSM and its relationship within organisations, is that we have discovered that often PSM organisations have multiple management systems.


There are many systems that you can integrate, such as:

  • Quality Management System

  • HSE Management System

  • Food Safety Systems

  • Information Security Systems


The fact that you can integrate these systems allows you to streamline the development of those management systems, and incorporate the different aspects., This also means that you are able to utilize one piece of technology to help you integrate and execute those very similar functions.

We spent quite a bit of time talking about stake holder engagement and I would have an argument that stake holder engagement applies to each of those different management systems.


Having a single platform to help you execute those types of activities and apply them across all of your management systems or in certain cases your integrated management system.


There are lot of other core elements that are similar across the management systems, which actually drives the decision of an integrated management system making sense for your organisation. Such as;

  • employee participation

  • management review

  • continuous improvement

All of these things are common elements across different management systems.

The decision to make, in terms of integrating those management systems, often resides as a function of change management.


Today, these different management systems may be the responsibility of different people, different departments, or even different parts of the organisation.


The benefits of integrating those management systems, integrating those common elements and then using a common technology to help you execute those management systems makes a lot of sense. It saves money, makes you more efficient and ultimately means you are able to do your job better.
