Competency Cloud LLC has announced that its CompetencyIQ® management system was recently described by the UK Health and Safety Executive as “industry leading.” The accolade resulted from a project with a major North Sea operator, undertaken by leading energy industry consultancy, Boxley Group.
The U.K. Health and Safety Executive - Hazardous Installations Directorate (HID), recognised as having some of the world's most stringent competency assurance requirements, recently conducted this rigorous inspection of one of the largest North Sea operators. The HID deemed the operator's drilling and completions competency management programme to be fully compliant with UK regulatory requirements and assigned a sought-after “Near Exemplary” compliance score.
CompetencyIQ®'s patent-pending technology and processes were judged by HID as critical to the inspection's success. Using predictive measurement to objectively gauge competencies and yield transparency across a business, the programme has helped accelerate informed decision-making and mitigate risk at all levels, from team composition in high-risk operations to strategic workforce and business planning.
Houston-based, Aberdeen-raised Malcolm Duncan is Chief Architect of CompetencyIQ®. Commenting on the recognition from the HID, he said: “From a drilling and completions perspective, a key requirement from the UK regulator is for operators to have a competency management system in place that demonstrates both competency and development opportunities against a given set of guidelines containing safety critical skills.
“Competencies are a critical conduit between business strategy and execution. Organisations across industries, whether expanding or contracting through challenging economic cycles, stay competitive by effectively managing human capital. With over 12,000 users worldwide, CompetencyIQ® is delivering value for business operations on a global basis, and we view this success in the UK North Sea as a major milestone for the programme.”
