The Safe Pass Programme is aimed at all construction site personnel, to ensure that they have a basic knowledge of Health and Safety and will be able to work on-site without being a risk to themselves or others who might be affected by their acts or omissions.
It is a legal requirement to have on any construction worksite.
Safe Pass is a safety awareness training programme for construction workers. It is a one-day programme that allows them to work on construction sites without being a risk to themselves or others. Employers are required by law to ensure that employees on construction sites carry Safe Pass cards. As a result, employers must ensure that all employees are properly trained.
You will be issued a Safe Pass registration card when you have successfully completed the one-day Safe Pass training programme. This card lasts for 4 years from the date of the training course. If you leave your workplace, you can keep your registration card, provided it is in-date. When it expires, you must then attend a further Safe Pass training course.
Participants are issued with a safe pass card by SOLAS following successful completion of the course (cards will take a number of weeks to be issued).
