Abstract

The purpose of this thesis is to develop a guidance document for integrating quality, environmental, occupational health and safety and energy management systems for manufacturing industries. The thesis presents the current status and strategies of the Integrated Management System (IMS) in Malaysian manufacturing industries. As to understand the status and strategies of IMS implementation, quantitative data collections through questionnaire survey were performed. In total, 40 responses from a variety of manufacturing sectors were analyzed. The result shows that manufacturing industries are embarking on IMS regardless of the types and sizes of the organizations. They are applying various strategies as long as it is practicable for their organizations’ business activities and processes due to the absence of international or national standards as a guideline for IMS. Concurrently, qualitative data was collected through Delphi Technique Expert Opinion Method with three rounds ofexperts’ views collection for the purpose of developing the guidance document. Nine experts panel from the category of academician, government body, and practitioners (consultants and auditors) participated in the activity. They have agreed to the proposed content and also raised their suggestions for improvement of the proposed document. The document has been prepared using the High Level Structure documented as Annex SL by ISO Directive. This structure is similar to the current release of ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 International Standard.
