How to Use the R2/14001/OHSAS Integrated Documentation Templates

Integrated documentation template packages are a great way to get started on the journey to management system certification. Using a template package serves as a baseline for your management system and provides customers a giant step forward towards getting certified quickly. All packages come with comprehensive guidance and support, including step-by-step instructions so you can easily implement your management system independently. If additional assistance is needed, we can help!

Supplemental support packages are available and include consulting services from one of Wilkshire Consulting's senior management system experts.

The planning process begins with determining the context of the organization, boundary and scope of the facility. With a fully integrated documentation package you are able to easily meet each of the standard requirements with ease. Once the planning stage of the management system has been completed the implementation phase will begin. Working through the provided guidance document you will follow the steps to customizing the materials, writing operational controls processes and work instructions that are unique to your organization. These unique operational process will be defined and controlled to integrate directly with your Wilkshire documentation packages. Once your implementation phases has been completed you will be only a few short steps from being fully prepared for your third party certification audit from the registrar of your choosing.

At this point, the documentation package has been implemented and is now being utilized to run the management system and meeting the requirements of the standards of your choosing. Working the system and utilizing the package will allow the organization to prepare for the certification audit. Prior to third party certification you must perform a fully system integrated internal audit. This is a requirement of ISO standards such as ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 as well as OHSAS 18001 (soon to be ISO 45001). If you require additional support in performing your internal audit, Wilkshire offers a cost effective internal audit support program to help you ensure your system is ready for third party auditor review.

In short, utilizing documentation template packages will give you assurance that all requirements from each standard has been addressed adequately. Additionally, having a solid foundation to work from take the guess work out of the process and allows your organization a clear road to receiving your certification rapidly. Organizations that commit to allocating the necessary recourses to the project can achieve certification in a little as 3-4 months.
