CCNSG National Course

The CCNSG Safety Passport Scheme is endorsed by ECITB member organisations including clients from the oil, gas, power and engineering manufacturing sectors where holding a current passport is a requirement to work on site.  It is also supported by contractors, including the Engineering Construction Industry Association (ECIA).

Designed for

The course is required for all contractors that go to do work on sites where the passport is required, including all trades, self-employed and employed workers through to directors.


The CCNSG Safety Passport National course is designed to enable those working on host sites to gain valuable information that will help keep them and the site safe and healthy.  The range of hazards included is designed to cover hazards relating to the delegates’ own work and to enable them to have greater awareness of the hazards and risks of those created by other workers on site who might inadvertently be putting them at risk.  The course considers safe behaviour at work, safe systems of work, safe place of work, safe problems and solutions.

Aims and Objectives

The aim of the CCNSG Safety Passport National course is to provide a basic knowledge of health and safety to enable delegates, after appropriate site induction, to work on site more safely with lower risk to themselves and others.

After successful completion of the CCNSG Safety Passport National Course delegates should:

  • Realise the importance of the National Safety Passport itself, as well as the importance of the engineering construction industry as a whole.
  • Have an awareness of health and safety at work as well as what their employer and they must do to abide with governing laws.
  • Have an understanding of safe behaviour at work and its importance.
  • Have an understanding of a safe place of work, and the regulations which govern this and the specific work tasks they cover, such as manual handling or confined space entry.
  • Have an awareness of safe systems, designed to make our everyday work safer, such as risk assessment and permit to work.
  • Have an understanding of safety problems and safe solutions and their role in this, including RIDDOR reporting and the accident book.

Delegates must have a good understanding of verbal and written English language.  All delegates need to bring a form of photographic evidence of their identity and their National Insurance number.  In addition, they will require two current passport sized photographs of themselves (these can be obtained locally at the time of the course if necessary).


The assessment of learning is by two multi-choice question papers issued each day (a total of four papers).  On successful completion of the course and assessments delegates will be provided with a temporary passport, valid for six weeks.  A safety passport, valid for 3 years, will be issued by the ECITB (CCNSG) directly to the delegate’s home address, approximately 3 weeks after the end of the course.
