COWI assists companies and organisations in introducing and developing management systems and monitoring in the fields of the environment, health and safety – often integrated with the other management systems in the company.

An integrated management system helps to control risks and to reduce losses in all processes and activities. Furthermore, it reveals new possibilities that may be strategic, risk limiting and resource saving.

Years of experience

COWI has been working with management systems and monitoring since the first standards were introduced in the beginning of the 90s, and we have assisted numerous companies and organisations all over the world.

We have the necessary experience and tools to assist our clients with everything from a few hours coaching to process consultancy to actual system design and implementation.

Upon request, we also take care of the running of the system, a consultancy service that is incresingly in demand.

Business focus

Typically, the starting point is the organisation's overall vision and strategy. Furthermore it is important that the entire organisation is actively involved in order to gain acceptance and ensure lasting change. The actual system design is made as simple and streamlined as possible and each system document is short and specific, preferably with graphic illustrations and flow charts.

Certification
Some organisations attain certification of their management system according to a standard (ISO 9001, ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001, EMAS II). Others choose their own model, matching their actual need. COWI has experience with both situations and can assist in identifying the appropriate level based on the needs of the organisation.
