Hazards 31

Technical Paper on “Linking critical competencies with major accident hazards” to be presented at Hazards 31 Virtual Conference

The importance of competence in the management of major accident hazards has been recognised for some time. However, developing effective systems to support this has proved to be difficult.

This presentation describes a recent scope of work for a North Sea Duty Holder that aimed to develop an effective system for identifying critical high-level competencies across an organisation, with a clear and transparent link to major accident hazards.

It dispels the myth that competence can only be achieved by sending people on training courses and highlights that people at all levels of the organisation need to have competence in the management of major accident hazards.
