The client was updating its COMAH report and recognised a need to include an objective assessment of staffing arrangements.  Andy was asked to conduct a study using the HSE method described in CRR348/2001.  He facilitated a number of workshops in order to complete physical and ladder assessments.  His report concluded that most necessary arrangements were in place, but that the details of their application was sometimes lacking.  He made recommendations to improve emergency arrangements so that prompt and effective responses would be more likely during an incident, and to review competence management programs.
