COMET is trusted by Leading Organisations around the world

How powerful would it be for an organisation to apply analysis logic in the preventive space of audit and inspection assurance?

Do you have any of the following challenges?

We have extensive experience working across diverse sectors worldwide, and we understand the immense pressure organisations face in complying with regulations across various aspects of their operations. However, we also know that traditional audit and inspection methods often fall short in identifying the root causes of issues. Instead, they only focus on identifying the problems.

That's where COMET Assured comes in. It’s the COMET module dedicated to streamlining assurance processes by enabling users to dive deep into the root causes of the issues, thereby empowering organisations to take proactive steps to mitigate risks and maintain regulatory compliance standards.

Do any of the following challenges sound familiar?

Reactive Analysis Limiting Insights

One key challenge that organisations face is the limitation of reactive analysis techniques when it comes to audit and inspection findings, restricting their ability to proactively mitigate risks and prevent recurrence.
Solution: COMET Assured tackles this challenge by leveraging Root Cause Analysis (RCA) techniques. Unlike traditional reactive methods, which often focus solely on immediate causes, our unique COMET RCA methodology and tools enable users to uncover the underlying root causes behind audit and inspection findings.

This comprehensive approach allows organisations to understand the systemic issues contributing to compliance gaps. By providing both the COMET Assured and COMET Lite software modules within the same license at no extra cost, we offer our clients the flexibility to adopt a more proactive approach. This enables them to identify the "why" behind non-compliance and implement targeted corrective and preventive actions effectively.

Inefficient Assurance Processes

Manual and disjointed assurance processes plague organisations, resulting in inefficiencies, delays, and inconsistencies in audit and inspection management. This inefficiency not only impacts productivity but also compromises the effectiveness of assurance activities.
Solution: COMET Assured offers a comprehensive solution to streamline assurance processes. From schedule planning to action tracking, COMET Assured provides a unified platform for managing all aspects of audit and inspection activities. By optimising workflows and standardising processes, COMET Assured ensures efficient and consistent assurance practices across the organisation, driving productivity and continuous improvement.

Limited Transparency and Accountability

Without a centralised assurance platform, organisations struggle to maintain transparency and accountability across their audit and inspection processes. Lack of visibility into activities and outcomes hampers communication and collaboration.
Solution: COMET Assured is a comprehensive platform that simplifies managing all assurance activities, ensuring transparency and accountability. It provides web-based access that allows modern and remote teams to collaborate from anywhere. With the help of audit trails, organisations can track activities, monitor progress, and ensure compliance with regulatory requirements.

Powerful Features

COMET Assured is the only mainstream web-based system to incorporate RCA, it facilitates the analysis of your proactivefindings, as well as marrying these up with your reactive data from incident investigations. All in one place…COMET.

Moving the assurance dial from the what to the why!

From streamlined assurance processes to data-driven insights, our platform empowers organisations to proactively mitigate risks and protect their employees, assets and the environment.

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."
