Management Systems

We work closely with you to review and create tailored company management systems that carefully balance process requirements and staff abilities.

Business Management Systems implemented to recognised Standards ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 are designed to be compatible and documents such as PAS99 (Specification for Integration of Common Management Systems) provides a framework for them to be seamlessly integrated. They share many principles so choosing an 'integrated management system' from the outset can offer excellent value for money.

Cogent Consulting can develop a bespoke management system on your behalf or can help tailor your existing management system to your particular needs. We specialise in systems complying with the ISO 9001, ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001 and PAS99 standards, plus BOPAS compliance.

Combined with our wide range of management systems expertise, we can help clients to maximise the benefits of a formal approach to the management of common business systems

We will work with your staff to ensure all documents and procedures are user-friendly, as well as providing training on the best process for completing each procedure and audit the systems to review satisfaction

For some organisations, separate systems are appropriate, whereas others require full integration. Whatever your situation, we can support your strategy development and implementation through our range of services.
