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.  Download the CMS Datasheet


"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"

COMAH Competent Authority, Inspection of Competence Management Systems at COMAH Establishments (Operational Delivery Guide)

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.
