CompEx Competency Validation.

Martin Jones* of JT Limited is to discuss the development of competency after the Piper Alpha Disaster in 1988 at a technical meeting of the Ireland Section of the International Society of Automation (ISA). The meeting is scheduled for Rochestown Park Hotel, Cork Wednesday 12th July 2017, 19:30pm.

He will examine how major users assisted the development moving on to the methodology of validating core competency and why it is important for employers to maintain a safe workplace to protect staff, contracting staff and the capital asset. The importance of utilising an accredited scheme will be stressed to ensure variability is reduced to a minimum as well as an overview of where the CompEx Scheme currently addresses competency and its strategy moving forward.

Peadar Walsh (Jones Engineering Group) will also be in attendance. Jones along with their partners ExVeritas operate the first and only CompEx certified training center in Ireland.

Pre-registration on the section website would be helpful (not necessary to attend) as it would give an indication of how many to expect on the night.
