Introduction: In HSE management systems competency has been considered as an important tool for selecting managers and resource allocation. Lack of proper HSE managers can undermine the performance of the management system. On the other hand competent HSE managers can improve the performance of management system and reduce the time to perform activities. This study was aimed to present a model to select the HSE managers.


Material and Method: In this study, similar models were examined to select the basic framework. Model dimensions and weights were determined using the focus group technique. The model was used in a large industrial company. The model was approved by the evaluation of the results and correction of the identified defects.


Result: The approved model included technical, behavior and concept competence. Technical competence for managers in level 1 and 2 and behavior competence for managers in level 3, were the most important dimensions.


Conclusion: HSE managers in various level should have different competencies which can be evaluated by presented model in the current study, before employment and also it can be used as a basis for monitoring individuals during specific period of time.
