Developing guidelines for competency management systems for the downstream oil industry - to be presented at HazardEx 2012

Author : Peter Davidson, Director - Safety, Commercial and Projects (UKPIA) UK Petroleum Industry Association

20 December 2011

These new Guidelines for Competency Management Systems for Downstream and Petroleum sites have been the subject of extensive consultation and designed with input from industry experts who have many years of experience working in the sector.

Whatever the nature of the organisation, the competence of its people is key to achieving business aims. 

In the downstream sector, a good quality, effective competency management system is also absolutely critical to ensuring a strong safety performance.  

The need for organisation-wide processes for both developing and monitoring the competence of staff is paramount within both the sector and its supply chain. These guidelines have been designed to ensure such processes leave no stone unturned, and that competency management is enshrined across the entire workforce.  

The guidelines are also designed to ensure that your competency management system not only improves staff motivation and performance, but critically reduce risks and the potential for human error.
