We are also into the implementation of ISO 14001 & OHSAS 18001 with ISO 9001 ,
We have planned for initial seperate tracks for EMS + OHSAS & QMS
for initial understanding of requirements of EMS + OHSAS & QMS, and then initial implementation
after the start while preparing the documentation & usage of documents we will be integrating QMS+EMS +OHSAS
It is MUCH more effective to understand the 3 standards and implement common documents as appropriate BEFORE you implement separate tracks. It would be like building three separate houses, with the idea that later you will connect the three houses into one big house. It can be done, but it will be a much better house if you design it to be one big house from the beginning.
It takes a little more training and understanding the three standards at the beginning, but will save MUCH MORE effort later when you don't have to tie it together.
I have worked with many companies who began separate, and then combined, and all said it would have been better to do it from the beginning.
P-D-C-A - Plan it better from the beginning.
If you need help with this, you may send me a private email.
