A programme of Managed Competence is fundamental to underpinning safety performance.

Managed Competence is an organisation’s ability to develop, manage and continuously improve people with the appropriate skills, knowledge and attitude to effectively perform their safety-related role in line with the overall business and safety strategy.

To fulfil this role, managers need to be able to effectively demonstrate performance across a number of key elements:
–  Framework (Definitions)
–  Assessment
–  Development
–  Performance Management
–  Continuous Improvement.

Collectively, these elements give an organisation the vital ability to develop, manage and retain the most important resource it needs to continuously improve safety performance – competent, professional people.

Through our broad portfolio of consulting and training programmes, we help organisations enhance safety performance, developing and sustaining Managed Competence at all levels.
