There was real support for the programme among clients, employers and other partners at the event with the collaboration that transcends individual organisations hailed as an excellent example of safety leadership in action.

The programme, which requires workers to demonstrate their ongoing technical competence every three to four years, reduces the duplication of assessments and costs, speeds up the deployment of personnel between sites and increases safety.

18 major asset owners have now signed the client charter which is formal recognition of Connected Competence as the industry base standard for technical competence assurance and is a commitment to include it in supply chain contracting strategies.

They urged the rest of the sector to adopt this mature approach to workforce, contractor and asset owner collaboration that will help deliver a safer, transferable pool of technically competent workers.
