To be competent, an organisation or individual must have:

  • Sufficient knowledge of the specific tasks to be undertaken and the risks which the work will entail; and
  • Sufficient experience and ability to carry out their duties in relation to the project; to recognise their limitations and take appropriate action in order to prevent harm to those carrying out construction work, or those affected by the work
