What is a 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 and when combined with a site-induction, it becomes an effective tool for keeping everyone safe at work.
Many organisations in the construction, gas, power and engineering sectors require workers, contractors and the self-employed, to hold a valid safety passport in order to work on their site. This is common for power generation sites, process industries, petrochemical sites, refineries and many more workplaces.
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.
Why take this course?
The CCNSG Safety Passport is not just a box ticking exercise, it’s a training scheme based on modern and professional requirements for health and safety. It is designed to keep workers and sites safe and helps to contribute towards keeping the engineering industries safe places to work.
As such, the CCNSG Safety Passport course is taken by around 30,000 people each year across the UK.
ACT have been delivering ECITB training, including the CCNSG Safety Passport, for over 20 years. Our tutors are experts in health and safety, who are accustomed to delivering training for a range of professional backgrounds, experiences, and abilities.
To attend this course, you will be required to bring with you:

- A form of in-date identification such as, a driving license, passport or an old CCNSG card
Who is the CCNSG Safety Passport for?
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.
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.
After completing this course you will be able to understand:
- 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.
