CCNSG Safety Passport Course

The nationally accredited CCNSG Safety Passport course and scheme is designed to enable contractors to improve health, safety and environmental awareness while at work on site. The Engineering Construction Industry Training Board (ECITB) accredited passport will also benefit your company by reducing accident rates and incident related costs and putting a stop to repetitive health and safety inductions.

The CCNSG Safety Passport scheme results in attendees acquiring a nationally recognised site safety qualification. Many companies insist on personnel holding the recognised safety passport qualification before allowing them access to a site or premises. The training provides basic knowledge of health and safety and complements on-site induction, enabling employees to work more safely and with lower risk to themselves and others. This passport which was previously known as the SCATS card is valid for three years, after this period the renewal consists of a 1-day CCNSG Safety Passport Renewal course. The CCNSG training scheme meets the statutory requirements of the Health and Safety Executive.

It’s important to make a note of the expiry date once the passport arrives to avoid having to retake this two day course once the passport is no longer valid.
