AM Technical Safety initially prepared a Facility Safety Report for a newly-designated COMAH Lower-Tier site following an intervention by the COMAH Competent Authority. The Facility Safety Report was based upon the COMAH Safety Report which is a requirement for Upper Tier sites.
Once the immediate Competent Authority requirement had been satisfied, AM Technical Safety adopted a pragmatic approach in the development of an overarching Safety Management System, focussing upon what the Facility already had in place or had achieved via previous third-party consultancy services.
A structured approach was taken to demonstrate an understanding of regulations, guidance and best practice, which served as a road-map to compliance; development of an integrated Functional Safety Management System was conducted in parallel.
AM Technical Safety engagement with the Client also included Performance Coaching and assistance with Process Improvement to ensure that ownership of the SMS could transfer to the Client with confidence that it would continue to evolve and improve.
