SPA SAFETY PASSPORTS
The SPA or Safety Pass Alliance was established in response to the needs identified within industry and has undertaken to develop and extend the safety passport culture across many sectors of industry. The SPA is committed to providing a nationally recognised standard of health and safety training which is cost effective, easily accessible, assesses delegate’s knowledge and caters for each industry sector. The ethos of the SPA is to make a positive enhancement of health and safety standards at all levels among workers in the participating sectors. The Safety Pass Alliance have an extensive background in both industry and the design of Safety Passport Training Programmes that focus on delivery of essential health and safety knowledge and safe working practices to all employees.
Course delegates are trained over two days. The Core session forms the first day of training and ensures that delegates grasp the basics of general health and safety good practice. The second day covers sector specific training.
Successful trainees are issued with a robust Passport photocard which is tamper-proof, secure and easy to verify. This nationally recognised scheme reflects HSE guidance and is supported by numerous work sectors. The passport is a result of consultation between clients and the Safety Pass Alliance, who have jointly developed a scheme to provide information and training on key safety issues to ensure that workers go home safely at the end of their working day.
There are a number of Safety Passports available and we at SMTS are a licenced training provider of SPA courses and currently offer the following:
• Core Day
This consists of 6 modules covering general aspects of general health and safety.
Petrol Retail Safety Passport
The SPA Petrol Retail passport has been written by the industry for the industry sector. The training is the product of a unique collaboration between the UK Petroleum Industry Association (UK PIA) and the SPA.
Working on Petrol Station Forecourts presents some very specific issues, not least the safety of the public. For this reason the SPA and UK PIA have developed the Petrol Retail Safety Passport to ensure that workers in the industry and particularly contractors working on forecourts, are trained to meet specific standards. Oil Companies and Supermarket Petrol retailers require contractors to complete this two day course before they are allowed to work on their petrol stations.
The petrol sector day focuses on the practical issues of identifying potential hazards, safe work practices and controlling a work programme on the forecourt.
Contractors should first undergo the Core day training which ensures that they grasp the basics of general good practice in health and safety, before then completing the Petrol sector day.
This programme is acknowledged by the HSE (Health and Safety Executive) and aims to drive good practice through the contractor supply chain increasing safety awareness and contributing to higher standards of health and safety in the petrol industry.
SMTS is a leading training provider of this Petrol Retail Passport, offering courses on a nationwide and client –specific basis. This passport is valid for three years, and SMTS also offer the one-day Renewal or Refresher course to renew the passport. SMTS also run the one day version of this Petrol Safety Passport course for Service Station Operators (Site Operators) who, upon successful completion of course assessments receive an SPA Site Operators Certificate.
Food and Drink Safety Passport
This safety passport is aimed at contractors who work in food and drink manufacturing. It focuses on hygiene, food safety, specific environmental issues and health and safety practices. The passport’s food and drink module is the product of a collaboration between major clients in the sector including, Northern Foods, Geest, Kelloggs Europe, Nestlé UK, Cadbury Trebor Bassett and Bass Brewers. In addition, contractor organisations such as the Processing and Packaging Machinery Association (PPMA) played an invaluable role in validating the training material.
The food and drink day focuses on the practical issues of food protection, environmental protection and health and safety issues associated with working in this sector.
The Food and Drink passport takes one day but trainees will need to undergo the Core training day first, which ensures the delegates grasp the basics of general good practice in health and safety. A one-day refresher course is available once the original pass expires.
CCNSG SAFETY PASSPORT (2-DAY)
The aim of the CCNSG Safety Passport Scheme is to ensure a basic knowledge of health and safety for all site personnel working in an industrial environment. This will enable them, after appropriate site induction, to work on site as safely as possible with lower risk to themselves and others.
The course is appropriate for anyone working in an industrial environment from labourers to project managers. There is an additional day for Supervisors, if required, which emphasises the key role that supervisors have in securing health and safety communications and risk management.
Delegates who successfully complete the multiple choice assessments will receive the CCNSG Passport card which is valid for three years, at the end of which they may undertake the 1-day refresher course to renew their CCNSG Safety Passport for a further 3 years.
The CCNSG Safety Passport Training Programme is monitored and controlled by a national steering group known as the Client/Contractor National Safety Group (CCNSG) who are there to ensure that standards are being maintained and that the content of the training programme continues to meet current safety legislation and current safety practices. SMTS is a fully accredited provider of this course.
