Abstract—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.

Index Terms—Integrated management system, ISO 9001, ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001, steel company.
