—This article aims to present the benefits in the
implementation of the integrated management system based on
the standards ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001. It is a
case study in a sector of the construction industry chain, located
in the southeastern Brazil. An exploratory study using a
questionnaire with leaders from this particular industry was
conducted, as well as a documentary analysis from the
Integrated Management System (IMS) archives. The obtained
results of the documentary analysis and perceptions of leaders
survey were observed based on previous IMS research. The
results indicated that almost all leaders identify several benefits
in systems integration, with an improvement in the routine
management as the main benefit, and the financial savings as
the smallest benefit. It was also found that in leader perception
the most of IMS documents are integrated. The same result was
found in many documents in the documentary analysis.
