Recently WPI required assistance from Stephen as they had been identified as a Major Hazard Facility. This resulted in a need for a review of their existing site procedures and documentation.

They required assistance on site to identify documentation best suited to being managed using SP along with library designs and page creation to get the document control and access requirements right.

Feedback from WPI is that they were really pleased with how the week went - they thought the approach was great with really good group meetings and decisions plus Stephen gave them a mini training session with staff to help them use SP in the right way. Enthusiasm is really high now.
