So far over 85 per cent of respondents agreed with APHC’s suggested changes to Gas Competency while many others also suggested additional areas to be considered.
E&U Skills are currently leading the project to coordinate all competency recommendations based on the Gas Safe Register report. All Feedback from the APHC preliminary survey will be documented and passed to E&U Skills for inclusion in their recommendations for change.
APHC Technical Services Manager Graeme Dryden: “We are delighted with the results so far but we want to ensure that all employers out there have the opportunity to influence the changes to competency arrangements. We have set a deadline of two weeks to give everyone, who has an interest in this highly emotive subject, to come forward and share their views. I would urge anyone who hasn’t completed this survey yet to do so in the next two weeks.”
The survey is set to close on Monday 15 October so the results can be documented and passed to EU Skills.
