New Safety Passport Scheme Leaflet

A free good practice guide leaflet about good practice, has been published by
the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).

Safety passports, developed and used in various industries, notably
construction – help workers gain minimum levels of health and safety knowledge,
and ensuring that they are aware of their environmental responsibilities before
being allowed access to a workplace.

Workers receive passports by attending training courses designed to raise
awareness of the risks associated within the trainee’s working environment.

The new leaflet, which includes a suggested core syllabus, is intended for
those who run or who are considering setting up a passport scheme. Information
contained in the leaflet would also be of interest to those looking to obtain a
passport.
