APHC has created a short survey covering a number of points put forward in the findings of the Gas Safe Register (GSR) report, with the aim of encouraging more industry employers to help shape the future of gas training and assessment.
In May, GSR published a number of findings from its consultative work carried out during 2011. APHC considers the report to be a fair and balanced view, but the report does not make any recommendations on actions to be taken.
E&U Skills is currently leading a project to coordinate all competency recommendations based on the GSR report.
It is the APHC opinion that employer views have been under represented in previous gas competency review exercises. APHC wants to encourage employers to get involved through the completion of their short survey.
APHC technical services manager Graeme Dryden said: “The subject of Gas Competency seems to be somewhat overshadowed by the Green Deal right now, but we believe this review is important and it deserves greater exposure.
“It is essential that all businesses/employers take part in this exercise in some way to make sure that their views are not overlooked.”
All feedback from the survey will be documented and passed to E&U Skills for inclusion in their recommendations for change.
