Abstract [en]

These days most companies conduct some form of work for the external environment, quality and safety. In connection with this work, some companies have chosen to get management systems certified by any applicable standard for one or more of the fields while other companies have chosen other ways that are not associated with certification.

In light of the fact that the individual systems are becoming unmanageable an increasing number of these companies are faced with the decision whether to integrate and coordinate these different systems or not. In order to study the possibilities of a company’s system coordination an assessment of elements particularly interesting for the company was performed. The key elements and focuses in the evaluation were staff access to information, experiences from other companies and environmental work status for some of the organization's companies. The availability and type of platform for information supply were investigated by means of a survey and showed a clear relationship between degree of usage, difficulties in finding information and perceived availability. Experience of managing such systems were investigated by means of written interviews with a number of companies and gave very good understanding of the advantages and disadvantages of a coordinated or integrated system. Evaluation of environmental work status was conducted as a checklist at two of Företaget AB:s subsidiaries and gave a clear picture of current status in relation to the standard requirements.

The investigation led to conclusions particularly concerning the importance of understanding the needs of the individual firm and its employees in the layout of an integrated system. A company's current situation regarding environmental work is not always crucial whether or not it should be part of the shared certificate. The solution regarding certification is eminently individual for each company. To avoid the negative effects that can arise from a shared certificate the company consequently need to find solutions that suit its own business best. To enable staff to find and use information in a simple way such information should be made readily available and limited to the user in a process oriented way.
