    Mark Breen started the topic Who has competency? in the forum General Information 4 years, 3 months ago

    How do we go about addressing issues in relation to the competency (or often lack thereof) of those producing EMPs and risk assessments for events and putting themselves forward as ECs and SOs?

    Seems to me that we’ll struggle to improve professionalism within the industry while people are cut and pasting EMPs and working as ECs and SOs without any decent experience, qualification or understanding of the actual roles.

    Thoughts?

    • Public bodies and Insurance companies play an important role here in terms of changing this situation. I think the initial move on this one is for us as an industry sector to come up with what we believe is a way of identifying competency and then promoting that to stat agencies and insurers to adopt.
