Green Energy Generation Company
The facility was an R&D site that acted as proof of context, so the process, layout, and site itself were in a constant state of change, which included the information of new hazards, in a fast-paced environment. The requirement to ensure the safety of all those involved, and external to the site, balanced with the need for fast changes meant that Finch had to have in-depth knowledge of the HSMS on site. Due to the hazards located on site, and the complex nature of the team, a multi-skilled team was required.
Finch assigned a key contact to the client who was responsible for the audit process but could pull in additional expertise as required throughout the engagement. Finch initially carried out a gap assessment of the HSMS and identified key areas that were missing concerning compliance and some that required improvement. Some of these areas required policies/procedures to be created, which Finch assisted the client in coordinating and creating.
Once gaps had been closed, Finch carried out a physical site assessment once a month, focussing on a different element of the HSMS to ensure compliance and with a focus on continuing improvement. This highlighted additional areas for improvement such as CDM management.
