It is important to consider that competency needs to be maintained not only by company staff, but also by contractors carrying out work on a site, and other suppliers who may be providing equipment or services as part of a complex supply chain.     

CMS is a vital component in meeting regulatory compliance and in keeping staff, the local community and investment in assets safe and secure - it is an issue ignored or half completed at high risk.
