CompEx Celebrates 25th Anniversary – Safety in Hazardous Environments
The CompEx scheme celebrated its 25th anniversary on the 28th May 2018 and celebrated the huge impact it has had on improved safety in the workplace during that time.
CompEx Celebrates 25th Anniversary – The CompEx Scheme came about as a direct result of Lord Cullen’s 13-month investigation into the Piper Alpha tragedy and led to 106 recommendations that transformed the North Sea oil and gas industry into a global leader in safety in these hazardous environments.
The CompEx scheme was launched in 1993 and the phenomenal success of the scheme has been marked with many milestones along the way, with Aberdeen College subsidiary ASET the first commercial centre in 1994, ten years later it was celebrating the 10,000 candidate certificated for Gas & Vapour and in 2010 that number had risen to 25,000. Electronic online examinations were introduced in 2013 and JT Limited took over ownership of the scheme from EEMUA a year later in 2014.
