‘Safety Passport’ Training at ITCM
Posted: Tuesday, February 10th, 2009 at 10:34 am
ITCM is pleased to announce that another session of ‘Safety Passport’ training for its employees has been successfully completed. Over three quarters of ITCM employees now have this nationally recognised level of training in health and safety in the workplace.
The CCNSG (Client/Contractor National Safety Group) Safety Passport Scheme is a nationally recognised 2-day in-house training course provided by an approved training provider. The scheme is well established, first proposed in 1991 as a means of meeting health and safety at work obligations in industries such as steel and power, the similarities between industries were soon realised and a general course emerged covering basic health and safety in the work place. The scheme is monitored and controlled by CCNSG who ensure standards are maintained and that training program content meets current safety legislation and practices.
The aim of the scheme is to ensure basic knowledge of health and safety for all site personnel, enabling them, after appropriate site induction, to work more safely with lower risk to themselves and others. On completing the training and successfully passing the assessment, a ‘passport’ valid for 3 years is provided indicating a basic level has been achieved. The training covers a range of general health and safety issues and has also been tailored to focus on areas faced by our employees on a regular basis, covering topics from safe lifting and manual handling, to electricity, noise and safe systems of work.
A scheme like this has many benefits, both for the individual personally, increasing knowledge and awareness, but also for ITCM and our customers, who are safe in the knowledge that both whilst on site and working at customers facilities, our employees have the knowledge to make their working environment safe and to recognise potential hazards.
