This is the leading multi-industry health and safety training passport scheme. A number of key industry sectors have already developed – in partnership with us – tailored industry-specific training packages and we are currently working with many more. Safety Pass Alliance is an organisation providing a safety passport scheme to many industrial sectors.
This industry-led, nationally recognised scheme reflects proposed Health and Safety Executive (HSE) syllabus guidance.
There is a high level of demand for the SPA Passport programme. The scheme represents a UK-wide commercial opportunity, giving you the chance to open up new markets for your business.
You will need to hold the NEBOSH Certificate (or equivalent) as the minimum health and safety qualification and you will need relevant training delivery experience and/or a training qualification. You will also need to attend a familiarisation session which explains the background to the scheme and the administration procedures in detail, and ideally the Passport training day for each training package that you plan to deliver.
If, for example, you want to offer the core day, it is recommended that you undertake the core day training and pass the assessments yourself. Some sectors require trainers to have additional industry-specific knowledge.
There are a number of information leaflets available for you, including Prices, Applications and Training Materials Orders. Please click on the links below to download the form(s) you require:
The training is currently designed to be delivered over one or two days. The core day is generic to all industries and forms the first day of training. The second day, if required, covers sector-specific training.
Each training package includes a CD version of the slides, tutor workbook, pocket guide for delegates, administration guide and end assessments.
A robust, secure plastic photocard, valid for three years, is given to each participant who completes the training successfully. The Passport, issued within 15 working days, features photo and personal information. The Passports are printed using a process which embeds the dye in the card – similar to the UK driving licence. Printed cards are coated with a holocote finish to ensure the Passport is tamper-proof.
All Passport details are held on a central database which can be interrogated by clients for validity.
