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.

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.

If you would like a free consultation fill in the box on the consultancy page and one of our team will get back to you.


Positive outcomes of a robust CMS can include:

  • Adherence to ISO quality standards
  • Improve operational efficiencies / productivity
  • Attraction, retention and succession planning of best employees
  • Compliance to COMAH / Seveso III regulatory requirements
  • Fulfilment of customer orders – delivering safely, on time, at the right price and produced to the customer’s quality requirements
  • Improved competitive advantage
  • Maintenance of your corporate reputation
  • Improve understanding of your health and safety and operating procedures
  • Reduced risk of human error incidents and accidents
