Who is a Competent Person?
A competent person is someone who has sufficient training and experience or knowledge and other qualities that allow them to assist you properly.
The level of competence required will depend on the complexity of the situation and the particular help you need.
By law, all employers, regardless of their size or sector, must appoint one or more “competent persons” – someone with the necessary training, experience and knowledge to help them fulfil their duties under health and safety legislation.
It is vital to identify the appropriate level of health and safety competency that is required for each set of circumstances. This is where our advisors can help.
Bravanark Network can help you fulfil this requirement by acting as one of your competent persons, giving you an added layer of technical health and safety support.
