COMET is trusted by Leading Organisations around the world

Do your personnel and organisational learning programmes truly develop your people for the role they perform?

Do you have any of the following challenges?

Gaps in learning and development programmes can lead to a lack of skilled personnel, lower employee morale, increased inefficiencies, and higher turnover rates. Regularly reviewing and updating these programs is necessary to ensure that employees have the necessary skills and knowledge to perform their roles effectively and stay engaged.

We can help to build hands-on risk intelligence in your organisation. Our expert COMET training teams can help to empower your employees, while also providing additional tailored leadership training, human and organisational performance optimisation services, and specialist incident investigation support services. We can help you to diagnose where our support is most needed, and then design and deliver the right tools and learning to empower your team at the right time.

Do any of the following challenges sound familiar?

Skill Gaps and Decreased Performance

When skill gaps and decreased performance are left unaddressed within an organisation, the consequences can be significant. These challenges often manifest as decreased productivity and efficiency, as employees struggle to perform tasks effectively. The quality of work may suffer, leading to errors and rework, ultimately impacting the organisation's reputation and customer satisfaction.

Additionally, the operational costs tend to rise due to inefficiencies and the need for additional resources to rectify mistakes.

At COMET we diagnose, design, and deliver custom learning programmes that move people development from a one-off ‘event’ to a planned, ongoing, and sustainable process. Our team will work with you to develop the talent within your organisation, offering quality, impactful training, and support to deliver long-term learning support to maximise organisational benefit.  Get in touch to learn about our custom programmes.

Employee Disengagement and High Turnover Rates

Onboarding and training new personnel is a time consuming and often expensive process with no guarantee of success. Similarly, a disengaged and de-motivated work base can impact significantly on individual, team and organisational performance.

The reasons why this can happen is vast, however with the right processes and team engagement in place, the risk of higher staff turnover and disengagement can be managed.

The Solution
At COMET we offer useful and easy to implement engagement tools to ensure ongoing work base engagement remains high. Our Human and Organisational Performance (HOP) Toolkit enables organisations to truly learn from those who do the work. By running regular ‘learning teams’ engagements and taking the time to understand ‘why’ people don’t always perform at their best, the work base have the opportunity to offer genuine value and insights otherwise unseen.

Similarly, our iCare Toolkit shines a light on the importance and value that exists within any organisation through Diversity, Equity & Inclusion. By considering the power of Diversity through a range of lenses, organisations can extract the value that is currently untapped whilst ensuring each and every team member feels engaged, valued and included.

Inefficient Workflows and Project Delays

Organisations rely on effective, fit for purpose processes and procedures which can be easily followed day to day by those who do the work. Unfortunately, these important workflows are often left to stagnate over time and are not regularly reviewed for improvements. The risk this presents is inefficient ways of working with team members who do not fully understand their role and what the potential impact may be of getting things wrong.

At COMET we offer a range of training and services designed to tackle these problems head on. As an approved provider of the ECITB accredited ‘Supervision Edge’ training programme, we deliver relevant and fit-for-purpose training to those individuals who play key roles in the success and outcomes of projects and work day-to-day. These individuals are very often team leaders, supervisors and managers and require not only the technical skills to perform work effectively, but the ability to lead and manage teams as well.

If you are facing any of these challenges, feel free to get in touch with us to learn more about our 'Supervision Edge' training program. You may also be interested in our Design for Business service.

Imperfect Investigations and Recurring Incidents

Organisations who carry risk with the work and operations they perform will inevitably have the need to investigate unplanned events, or more easily understood, when simply things go wrong. These ‘events’ maybe health & safety related, a security breach, an environmental release or loss, a failed quality check or non-conformance or anything at all requiring the need to understand fully ‘what’ happened, and importantly ‘why’ it happened. The failure to investigate properly and implement suitable improvements can lead to recurrence of problems and unidentified risks which of course have wider consequences around work base well-being, cost and reputation.

The importance of proportionality investigating all events, regardless of consequence or type, is a hugely valuable means of extracting powerful organisation data and enabling ongoing learning.

The Solution
At COMET we offer a variety of training and coaching solutions designed to help organisations, of all sizes and within any industry, to become better at investigating the circumstances of an event and implement solutions to prevent re-occurrence.Our COMET training ranges from short, impactful 1-1 coaching sessions through to full 2-day Practitioner workshops for investigation leads and experts.

Our IOSH approved 2-day Incident Investigators Toolkit gets to the heart quickly of ‘how’ to properly investigate and includes a suite of tools and techniques that will benefit any level of investigator, from the novice to the experienced. Get in touch to learn more.

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."
