John Jones, Operational Support Manager at Warwick Chemicals found the Gold Standard an excellent framework to work to. He said:

"As a top tier COMAH site it is critically important to have competent staff to operate the site in a safe manner.  The Cogent Gold Standard provides an excellent framework and roadmap that clearly sets out the desired skill sets required by many important functions across the site.  We have focussed on Process Operators, Process Cell Leaders and Logistics Operatives.

"I believe that we have benefited from improved Safety, Health and Environmental performance by educating and developing staff in line with the CGS.  Reduced reportable incidents and less lost time accidents have resulted from this improvement. In recent years we have increased the number of Process Cell Leaders, a vast majority of those new Cell Leaders were promoted from Process Operators that had developed themselves through the Cogent Gold Standard.  We feel there are great benefits to be had from competent staff and we now have the ideal plan to achieve our goals for a safe and efficient work team."
