To celebrate this market introduction, there is an offer worth £600 for each new customer, running until 30 September 2021. More offer details at the bottom of this article

Our consultancy services will Review, Design, Implement and Benchmark business’ policy and procedures systems relating to:

  • Competence Management
  • Human Factors
  • Operational Performance
  • Process Safety Management

These newly extended services align to Cogent Skills’ core values of delivering ‘Best in Class’ solutions, addressing strategic skills issues for the science industries.

For customers, the services will not only help with compliance, the implementation of ‘best practice’, risk reduction of accidental shutdowns / business loss and reduction of human error but will also help to reduce long term costs.

Following regulator’s delivery guidance, our industry expert consultants work with business leaders to develop COMAH / Seveso III compliant management systems, designed to improve the skills of internal specialists – so that the business becomes self-sufficient. This means employers will not need to spend more money in the future, by bringing in other policy and procedures consultants

The HSE have previously identified Human Factors and Competence Management as suboptimal and have put together an inspection regime to investigate compliance. We know that inspectors need businesses to demonstrate that they have access to competent support, which can be an internal or external resource. We are delighted to officially announce that Cogent Skills can provide global employers with this accredited, external expert resource

Neil Smith, Head of Workforce Development, Cogent Skills

As our key workers heroically battled through the recent Brexit and Covid turmoil, many business leaders realise they need to put investment into policy and procedures system updates, business improvement projects and employee development initiatives.

Right now, employers are ramping up improvements to their management safety systems, workforce competency, business and operational performance plans. We are delighted to be currently working with industry employers, who are needing to:

  • Improve their business and operational performance
  • Review and develop management systems to comply with high hazard regulatory requirements
  • Prepare for regulator inspections
  • Support their workforce

We totally understand that managing your compliance requirements may be time consuming, stressful or even a step into the unsure or unknown? This is why we are introducing our consultancy services to the global market – for businesses to prepare for an inspector, improve their management systems and keep their license to operate.

We’ve been delivering our services to industry over the last five years, to organisations such as National Grid, Recipharm, Sterling Pharma, Baker Hughes, Johnson Matthey, Thermo Fisher, Unilever and Victrex. But, all of these projects have been gained through personal recommendation and we want to let everyone know about how we can help them!

We feel that the time is right now to formally extend our expert competent consultancy solutions, so that businesses can prepare to emerge – moving into a safer, prosperous and more productive, post-pandemic era.

Alex Slater, Head of Business Operations, Cogent Skills.
