Competence Management ProgramBe assured of the competence and training of Baker Hughes employees
The Baker Hughes Competence Management Program works to qualify the skills and knowledge of personnel in critical roles to comply with industry and government regulations and improve workplace reliability. Competence assurance is one of the highest priorities of Baker Hughes. The Baker Hughes Competence Management Program helps company employees reliably meet and exceed current and upcoming client requirements and government regulations. It also links learning and qualifications of employees to career development and offers a way to measure the capability Baker Hughes employees bring to each project by recording each employee’s achieved skills and training.
IADC competence assurance accreditation
In January 2012, Baker Hughes became the first integrated oilfield service company in history to receive full accreditation of its Competence Management Program from the International Association of Drilling Contractors (IADC).
IADC’s system for accrediting competence assurance programs reviews and confirms that the company’s program meets accepted practices to develop and evaluate its personnel across a wide array of the company’s job functions and product lines. Before IADC awarded the accreditation, the organization reviewed all aspects of the Competence Management Program at Baker Hughes for several months. This included reviewing performance criteria for employees, the process for defining competencies, training resources and support, documentation, and quality assurance.
Baker Hughes proactively sought this accreditation because IADC is a leader in developing standards for industry training and is a well respected association that represents the worldwide oil and gas industry. The accreditation signifies that Baker Hughes has a formal system to verify that Baker Hughes employees are proficient to work at client sites and on their projects.
