How can COMET transform risk management in construction?

Do you have any of the following challenges?

In the engineering and construction industry, there are a variety of challenges that can impact safety, operational efficiency, and competitiveness. However, these challenges can also be viewed as opportunities for innovation and growth.

As construction projects become more complex, it is important to address these challenges in a constructive way to ensure successful project delivery, manage risks effectively, and stay ahead of the competition. By taking a proactive approach to these challenges, the industry can continue to thrive and evolve, and ultimately provide better outcomes for stakeholders.

By guiding the creation of preventative actions, COMET mitigates the risk of repeat incidents, ensuring a safer work environment and reducing project disruptions.

Project Delays and Cost Overruns

In order to ensure the success of any construction project, it is important to be aware of the potential challenges that may arise. While issues such as project delays and cost overruns can be frustrating, they can also serve as valuable learning opportunities. By identifying the root causes of these problems, project managers can work to implement clearer and more effective management processes and procedures. This approach can help to minimise confusion and inefficiencies, ultimately leading to a more streamlined and successful project lifecycle.
Solution: COMET empowers…by designing project management processes which remove the risk of lack of clarity and inconsistency. Moving from complexity to clarity, processes are designed with the end user in mind, rather than an auditor, resulting in procedures are clear and simple to follow.

Complex Regulatory Environment

The construction industry operates under a complex regulatory environment, requiring organisations to navigate a maze of regulations, permits, and standards that vary from country to country.
Solution: COMET's intelligent audit analysis module is designed to facilitate compliance while streamlining the auditing process. The module can be configured to meet specific project and organisational needs, empowering auditors with the tools they need to conduct thorough audits. COMET ensures that evidence is gathered and standards are adhered to, providing peace of mind to organisations.

Helped us reduce first aid cases by 29%

"When we adopted COMET, we were looking for a root cause analysis tool that would help us identify underlying causes before they lead to incidents. Since adopting the tool, COMET has helped us reduce first aid cases by 29% in the last year, contributing to Corning’s best-ever safety record in 2022.

On top of this, the support from the COMET team cannot be underestimated – they are always on-hand to resolve any issues in a timely and efficient manner. I would highly recommend COMET and the STC INSISO team to anyone looking for an audit and investigation tool."

Guillermo Castillo, Global EHS Leader – OCS Division at Corning Inc.

COMET helped us understand the systemic root causes

"The main value to LR of adopting COMET is the newfound organisational leadership education and enlightenment as to the reasons behind incident types, particularly  those which hurt us most in terms of frequency. A recent example was repeat microsleep incidents affecting our surveyors. COMET helped us understand the systemic root causes and gave the Board sufficient confidence to invest over £2 million in a preventive action programme which is already bearing fruit in terms of this type of incident reduction."

James Pomeroy,
Group Director HSEQ at Lloyds Register

We’re maximising its value across the business

"Viridor is a relatively recent adopter of the COMET RootApp tool but is already beginning to really reap the rewards of a first class investigation system.
We’re maximising its value across the business through consistency of approach and ensuring we really do get to the root cause of our incidents so we can set the right actions to prevent recurrence.

The STC team has been hugely helpful and supportive in getting this new process implemented."

Richard Robinson,
Head of SHQS at Viridor

Probably the best root cause analysis process and toolkit

"Probably the best root cause analysis process and toolkit. But beyond enabling us to adequately identify root causes, COMET also allows us to track trends using the root cause codes to help address systemic opportunities in our management system."

Feels more like a partnership

"Borr Drilling adopted COMET across the business in 2017/2018 and since then our relationship and trust with the STC INSISO COMET team has grown immensely.

Any issues are quickly resolved or addressed and a feature of the relationship I enjoy most is that it feels more like a partnership than that of a more traditional vendor/client arrangement."

Thomas Sunde, QHSE Director at Borr Drilling

Positive and encouraging feedback

"STC INSISO recently delivered the 3-day COMET practitioner course to GSK R&D (UK) engineering and safety professionals.

The COMET team created a bespoke course that was well received by GSK R&D with lots of positive and encouraging feedback."
