Date: Thursday 16th November 2023
Location: Online via MS Teams
Time: 09.00am - 10.00am

Effective management of competence is an essential element of process safety, helping to ensure safety critical activities are performed to an appropriate standard whilst raising the knowledge and awareness of the role your employees play in the prevention of major accidents.

This Knowledge Share webinar, featuring experts in Competency and Change Management in regulatory environments, will examine the ways in which the competence of employees in relation to the control of Major Accident Hazards can be identified, assessed and managed as part of a competence assurance system.

Attendees will hear first-hand from practised competence specialists, on the experience of developing Competence Management Systems (CMS) for COMAH and high hazard sites, providing practical actionable advice for employers wanting to implement, improve and/or get the most from their own CMS.
