If I know an employee is good at his job, does that mean he’s competent?


No. While in general the term competence denotes the ability to do something successfully or efficiently, in terms of Health & Safety it means something quite specific. For a worker to be deemed competent he is required to have the necessary, skills, qualifications and experience to perform a task safely. Without all three of these elements, he cannot be regarded as competent.
