||The objective of this survey was to improve the understanding of competence levels held by people acting as nominated competent persons, as per the provisions of the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 (see CIS 02-1507). It shows how the issue is addressed in 502 companies in the manufacturing and engineering sectors. Findings indicate that the competent person is likely to be senior within the organization, and have considerable experience within that industry. The level of health and safety training was variable, ranging from 20% of persons with no training to 20% having level 3 standard qualifications or above. The level of training and resources provided does not correlate with risk level, but does with company size.
