The SOLAS/FAS ‘SafePass’ Health and Safety Awareness Training Programme is a one day safety awareness training programme aimed at all construction site personnel, including new entrants, to ensure that they have a basic knowledge of health and safety. It is important that workers have a basic knowledge of health and safety to make them aware of the inherent dangers on construction sites so that they will not be a risk to themselves or to their co-workers who work alongside them.
Aim / Objectives
To increase awareness of health and safety in the construction industry. To ensure that all construction site personnel 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. To maintain a register of personnel who received such training. To provide all participants with a SOLAS Safe Pass registration card that will indicate that the holder has attended a formal course in health and safety training.
Who should attend?
