Robert Gunning and John Hunt
Robert Gunning, who is originally from Limerick City and now lives in Blackrock, Co. Dublin, together with John Hunt who lives in Muine Bheag, Co. Carlow, are part of the Control of Hazardous Energy (COHE) Audit App team.

The COHE Audit App team identified a need for a scalable and standardised auditing system as the Intel Leixlip site expanded. John and Robert worked together develop the COHE app. The app is designed to follow the COHE standard and allows for real-time data recording, making it easier to identify COHE trends and ensure compliance. The app has been in use in Fab 24 since late 2021 and has successfully conducted more than 500 audits. John shared the app with the Virtual Factory network to introduce a standardised approach to auditing, and Robert is supporting the technical rollout of the app.
