Assessing and assuring competence can be a large task, but one that is essential to maintaining site and process safety, particularly on high hazard sites.
People at all levels of the organisation are central to controlling Major Accident Hazards.
When things go wrong and systems and processes break down, it is only competent people who can return the situation to normal.
By thinking about people as an asset – not just a potential source of failure – we can maximise business and safety performance.
The HSE Chemicals Sector Strategy, developed in early 2011, identified that maintaining competence was a “key challenge for industries within the sector” and as a result Competency Management has been identified as one of the key HSE inspection topics for 2012-2015.
This seminar will discuss the HSE’s expectations and inspection programme whilst delivering practical best practice advice in managing competence for high hazard industries.
Our approach requires active engagement of participants to promote measurable and sustainable improvements. Our programme is designed to draw on the experience of those attending through a series of presentations and facilitated discussions. By working this way, not only do participants gain knowledge and understanding, but the companies benefit from solutions too.
