Safe Pass

Please note this course is run at Castleblayney Training Centre by an external training provider who is registered with SOLAS as a Safepass Tutor. The Safe Pass Health and Safety Awareness Training Programme aims to ensure that all construction workers in Ireland have a basic knowledge of health and safety. Safe Pass is a one-day programme to enable them to work on construction sites without being a risk to themselves or others who might be affected by their actions. Employers are required by law to ensure that employees on construction sites in Ireland carry Safe Pass cards. As a result, employers must ensure that all employees are properly trained. The Safe Pass programme aims to: Raise the standard of safety awareness in the Irish construction industry. Ensure that all construction site workers undergo basic health and safety awareness training with the view to making a positive contribution to the prevention of accidents and avoidance of health hazards. Maintain a register of construction site and local authority workers who have received such health and safety training. Provide all Safe Pass participants with a Safe Pass registration card that will indicate that the holders have attended a formal course in health and safety awareness. The Safe Pass Programme complies with the provisions of the Safety, Health, and Welfare at Work Act 2005, the Safety Health and Welfare at Work (General Application) Regulations, and the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work (Construction) Regulations 2006, which states that all workers in the construction sector in Ireland, including construction apprentices registered under the Standards-Based Apprenticeship Scheme and trainees undergoing traineeships in the construction industry, must undergo safety awareness training and registration under the Safe Pass Programme before they begin work on a construction site. After sucessful completion of the 1-day Safe Pass training programme you will be issued with a Safe Pass Registration Card, which is valid for 4 years from the date of the training course. You must then undergo a further Safe Pass training course when your Safe Pass card expires. Entry requirements: Participants must have a valid PPS Number, they must also produce photo ID (eg: Valid Licence or Passport), and they will need 2 current passport sized photographs.
