CCNSG Safety Passport
The CCNSG Safety Passport course is a two-day training course that provides a basic knowledge of health and safety. It is designed to enable delegates to work on site in a safer way, and at a lower risk to themselves and others.
Many organisations in the construction, gas, power and engineering sectors require a valid safety passport as a requirement to work on site for employees of all levels, including contractors, self-employed individuals and workers employed by the organisation directly.
Once you have completed the course you will be issued with a provisional safety passport card. This card is valid for 6 weeks or until your full card comes through from ECITB. Your full card is then valid for 3 years from the date of the course.
Many organisations within the construction and engineering sectors require their employees and contractors to have completed a CCNSG Safety Passport course, and to present their valid card, prior to being allowed onto site to work.
As such, the CCNSG Safety Passport course is taken by around 30,000 people each year across the UK.
In order to take this course, delegates will be required to bring with them:
- 2 Passport sized photos and a form of in date identification such as old CCNSG card, driving license or passport.
Any further requirements are provided after booking in the form of joining instructions.
The course is designed to enable those working on construction and engineering sites to gain valuable information which will help to keep themselves, and others within their workplace, safe and healthy.
The course is intended to reflect the common hazards that relate to the construction and engineering industries. This makes the course applicable to the delegates’ own work, and what common hazards can be created by others on site.
The following topics are covered in the course:
- Safe behaviours at work
- Risk assessments
- Hierarchy of control
- Manual handling
- Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER)
- Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome
- Working in confined spaces
- Working at height
- Lifting operations and lifting equipment regulations
- Sit transport
- RIDDOR (Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations)
This course is assessed with two multi-choice question papers issued each day of the course (a total of four papers).
On successful completion of the course and assessments delegates will be provided with a temporary passport which is valid for six weeks while they await the full card. The full card is sent by ECITB directly to the delegate’s home address approximately 3 weeks after the course.
The full safety passport card is valid for 3 years from the date of the course, and will need to be renewed by taking a CCNSG Safety Passport Renewal course for the card to stay up to date.
