COMET

Organisations need to fully understand the real root causes of issues they face and how to prevent them happening again. COMET is the most effective toolset for investigation, root cause identification and prevention, enabling you to solve issues and move to maximum performance.

COMET reaches the root cause of problems faster and more effectively than traditional methods. That’s because the team who developed COMET has a combined 300 years’ experience of investigation and incident prevention.

COMET uses unique root maps to isolate root causes.

The COMET process

Traditional root cause analysis tends to divert effort to analysis based on less than rigorous investigation, resulting in uncoordinated action.

The COMET process is unique. It recognises that emphasis on the ‘Discover’ phase of event investigation generates high quality input data and gives you a solid foundation for making the rest of the process robust.

Discover
How we prepare by controlling the immediate aftermath of an incident and categorising the incident. How we conduct an effective investigation of the incident. How we conduct a barrier analysis to identify failings.

Analyse
Applying COMET Factors to the COMET Root Maps to lead us towards the root causes. A COMET Factor is an individual error, organisational shortfall or system / equipment failure that directly contributed to the incident or caused the consequences to be worse than they might have been.

Action
Developing effective preventive actions to address the root causes.

COMET 60 Quick Incident Investigation

COMET 60 has been specifically designed to complement the COMET process and is deployed when initial assessment categorises an incident as “Level 1 – Low Consequences”. The COMET 60 process gives you a meaningful investigation and effective preventive actions in 60 minutes.
