Health & Safety in Construction
The Solas SafePass Health and Safety Awareness Training Programme is to ensure that, over the course of time, all workers in construction will have a basic knowledge of health and safety, and be able to work on-site without being a risk to themselves or others who might be affected by their acts or omissions. From a health and safety perspective, construction workers are bound by law to hold a valid Safe Pass card. With this Background in mind, the programme was developed in consultation with interested parties.
The Aims of the programme are focused mainly around health and safety awareness, while the Benefits include an improved safety culture. There are a number of different modules making up the Safe Pass Course Content.
Part 1, Section 4 of the Safety Health and Welfare at Work (Construction) Regulations 2013 provides details on the categories of workers that recognise a Safety Awareness Registration Card. Construction apprentices registered under the Standards Based Apprenticeship Scheme, and trainees undergoing traineeships in the Construction Industry are also required to have a Safety Awareness Registration Card
