2012 - Gas

The client had recently undergone changes that had reduced workload for site personnel, but had a project on-going that would eventually return it to previous levels. They had identified an opportunity to release personnel to join the project team, which was seen as a very good way of making sure operational experience was considered in design and commissioning.  Andy was asked to assess the proposed temporary reduction in staffing levels and to advise on how it could be managed.  He used the HSE Staffing Assessment method presented in CRR348/2001 as a framework for the study, which was very successful at demonstrating how the change could be implemented safely.
