A competent person is someone with adequate training, knowledge and experience to be able to implement these measures properly.

The responsible person (property owner, company director etc) must, where necessary, nominate competent persons to implement those measures and ensure that the number of such persons, their training and the equipment available to them are adequate, taking into account the size of, and the specific hazards involved in, the premises concerned...
