Process Safety Competence
Every post-incident investigation has revealed that competency in executing certain process safety tasks have led to the incident directly or contributed to the severity of consequences.  As a result, it is imperative that competence should be a basic pillar on which improvements in process safety performance should be built.  Requirements for achieving and maintaining competence for various activities should be spelled out very clearly.  Process safety competence and performance should also be recognized and compensated properly.  However, best-in-class organizations also recognize that performance management tools must be used with great care in the field of safety.
