Safer by Competence
In order to realise Vision Zero, the MPA has devised a framework to deliver demonstrable personal competence across the industry. This comprises a series of initiatives and targets encompassing employees and contractors across all products and services within the MPA’s membership.
The framework sets out routes to meeting National Occupational Standards relevant to job functions, with a range of targets applicable to all in operational employment. For the great majority of MPA members, NVQ/QCF/SCQF vocational qualifications routes provide the logical solutions and these represent the preferred approach. To help individuals, employers and advisers, the Mineral Products Qualifications Council has produced an updated Competence Map. Please see the MPQC website (www.mpawards.co.uk) for more information.
‘Safer by Competence’ is supported by a family of complementary ‘Safer by ….’ initiatives, which can be accessed by clicking on buttons in right hand column:
