As of April 1st 2012 the CCNSG Safety Passport is changing. Delegates will now be issued with a temporary card valid for 6 weeks with the full card being issued directly from ECITB. Clients
The aim of the CCNSG Safety Passport Scheme is to ensure a basic knowledge of health and safety for all site personnel to enable them, after appropriate site induction, to work on site more safely with lower risk to themselves and others.
In the early 1990s a consortium of major industrialists from the power generation, steel, oil, gas and chemical industries recognised the need to train their contractors in basic safety. Most were providing a site induction, some were training their contractors, but there were no common standards. Two groups, in the North East and in West Wales, working in co-operation, set out to standardise their basic safety training and devised a core curriculum which became the foundation of a training scheme which has grown to national proportions.
The scheme, which results in the award of a ‘Safety Passport’ to contractor site personnel, is monitored and controlled by a national steering group known as the Client/Contractor National Safety Group (CCNSG). Representatives from major clients are nominated by local safety groups to serve on the CCNSG and there is also representation from contractors, training providers and trade unions. The CCNSG meets regularly to ensure that standards are being maintained and that the content of the training scheme continues to meet current safety legislation and current safety practices.
The Training and Assessment
The two-day training programme covers four modules:
There is an additional day for supervisors, which emphasises the key role that supervisors have in securing health and safety including safety communications and risk assessments.
The course itself involves a significant amount of trainee participation. Most contractors’ personnel know something about the topics before they arrive and lively discussions are often the order of the day. In presenting the course, the trainers talk with the trainees rather than at them, giving the continuous message "If you can’t do it safely, don’t do it".
The award of the Safety Passport is subject to the candidate successfully completing a 100 question multiple-choice test paper, with the question content and level set by the participating client safety experts on the CCNSG. Successful candidates receive a plasticised photographic pass that is valid for three years. To assist the administration of the scheme, all records are computerised on a database maintained by the Engineering Construction Industry Training Board (ECITB).
All training providers are recommended by an industry client and are subject to review by the local CCNSG safety group and the national CCNSG. The training courses are delivered using common training materials approved by the CCNSG and tutors must be approved and registered. The high level of quality control includes auditing by an independent auditor and training costs are maintained at a minimum level.
The Success of the Scheme
The Health & Safety Executive has monitored the scheme from its early days, and has shown its support by attending the launch of the scheme in several new locations. Continued support from HSE has been a feature as passport schemes have gained prominence. Local safety groups have been established in a number of locations throughout the UK and over 70 Training Providers have been approved by the ECITB to deliver the training on behalf of the CCNSG.
Since the start of the scheme more than 500,000 passports have been awarded to client and contractors’ personnel and many more join the list every week. The passport is transferable to all participating clients and sites.
There has been a significant reduction in incidents and lost time accidents in every location where the scheme has been implemented. One satisfied client was able to report a 50% reduction during a major shutdown.
The rapid growth of the training is proof that it works and the scheme is now being embraced by sectors of industry outside the original, mainly engineering construction, group. Wherever a process plant is being constructed or maintained, the CCNSG Safety Passport scheme has a part to play. The scheme has participating clients throughout Scotland, England and Wales and new clients and new enquiries are received every month.
