Workers Encouraged to ‘Own’ Their Skills Through Connected Competence
Workers in the engineering construction industry are more than aware of the multitude of risks and hazards that surround them in their everyday work. They are also aware that the onus is on each one of them to ensure that they are operating in the safest possible way at all times.
Helping Avoid Disasters Like Piper Alpha and Bacton
One of the biggest drivers behind Connected Competence is to help avoid workplace incidents across the engineering construction industries. By no means are we saying it’s a cure-all solution, but gaining Connected Competence contributes to a safer working environment for everyone.
CompEx (Modules 1-4) now recognised within Connected Competence accreditation
The Connected Competence scheme now recognises CompEx certification as part of the standardisation and recognition of base technical competence across the engineering construction workforce. This continues to increase safety standards and efficiency by removing duplication and cost from industry training.
Staying safe in shutdown periods
Site shutdowns for maintenance are crucial periods for the industry. Time is of the essence to minimise financial losses while production is suspended. While a well-planned relay of companies shutting down one after the other would be ideal, unfortunately it’s not the reality.
Connected Competence Proves What Employers Want To Know
Do you ever get fed up of having to prove your skills – the ones you already have? You’ve been trained in your industry discipline for years now, yet each time you change jobs, you’re asked to provide proof of your skills. Annoying, isn’t it?
Why Do I Need Connected Competence?
Depending on where you are in your career, you may have mixed feelings about Connected Competence. If you’re just starting out, it’ll be part and parcel of your training – but, if you’re a time-served worker, you might be wondering why you need to prove your competence… you’ve been doing the job for years, after all.
How Easy Is It To Achieve Connected Competence?
The Connected Competence train is well on its way, and more and more people are joining the journey. From young people who are undertaking tests as part of their training, to highly experienced workers, people are realising the benefits of Connected Competence.
