Competence Management Systems
Improving individual and organisational performance within high hazard industries
We will Review, Design, Implement and Benchmark your business’ policy and procedures systems
What is a Competence Management System ?
A Competence Management System (CMS) is a set of process procedures (part of the Human Factors Roadmap), which helps you to develop systems to evidence an individual employee’s workplace knowledge, skills, attitude and behaviours. A CMS is designed to comply to COMAH / SEVESO III regulatory and ISO quality systems requirements – to ensure operational competence.
Major hazard organisations require competent staff who have the necessary skills, knowledge and experience to undertake critical tasks in such a way as to prevent a major accident or minimise the consequences to people and the environment should one occur

Why implement a CMS?
Demonstration of a robust CMS is required by major accident hazard site regulators, as listed in:
Managing for health and safety (HSG65)
A CMS improves operational performance, safety and staff morale, by standardising the reliability and consistency of quality production across individual and multi sites, team shifts and global operations.
A robust CMS is for organisations who want to transform their business, improve competitive advantage, drive operational excellence, comply to regulatory requirements and attract / retain the best employees.

Positive outcomes of a robust CMS can include:
I can certainly see the value in helping employers to shape their own skills futures. We now have the full results of the Systems Check and we are looking at our management and organisational development programmes and how we can implement the recommended processes to give us a current and very 'live' skills snapshot, together with a clear road map of where we need to go in the future

The training has streamlined our processes and focussed our employees on the business needs not only from a safety environment and health focus but also from a customer and quality focus. The structured approach to training and working towards a nationally recognised set of qualification has made employees jobs more interesting an challenging, with them taking more responsibility for the job competencies
