The Client Contractor National Safety Group (CCNSG) has developed a Safety Passport Scheme for site work to help site personnel and contractors’ personnel to work more safely with lower risk to themselves and others. CCNSG courses are administered by the Engineering Construction Industry Training Board (ECITB). The Safety Passport can also be known as the “ECITB Safety Passport”.
CCNSG courses relate to site safety, ensuring that those going to work on a site have a basic knowledge of health and safety, after an appropriate site induction. The CCNSG safety passport is the agreed site safety training qualification needed for access to process plant sites in the UK.
The ECITB administer the CCNSG (Client/Contractor National Safety Group) Safety Passport scheme via a network of approved training providers.
There are three CCNSG training courses available:
The CCNSG National Course is a two-day course for basic site safety.
Content included within the CCNSG National Course includes:
To gain the CCNSG National Course award for the CCNSG Safety Passport, candidates are required to successfully complete a multiple-choice test paper at the end of the course. Successful candidates will hold this award for three years.
The CCNSG Renewal Course is a one-day refresher course for those who have already passed the CCNSG National Course.
Candidates are required to sit the CCNSG Renewal Course within three months of expiry of the Safety Passport. If the CCNSG Renewal Course is not taken before the three months, candidates will have to re-sit the CCNSG National Course.
The CCNSG Leading a Team Safely training course was introduced in 2014 to replace the CCNSG Supervising Safety course. This is a one-day course suitable for all who are working in a supervisory role and all delegates must also hold a current and valid CCNSG Safety passport.
This CCNSG course focuses on how to lead a small team safely, communication skills and achieving safe outcomes. Upon successful completion of the course, delegates will receive a CCNSG Leading a Team Safely card which is valid for three years and must be renewed within three months of expiry.
