Course details

The Contractor Safety Training Scheme has now been adopted by BP, Dow Corning, Elf, Gulf, ICI, Lindsey Oil, National Power, Powergen, Shell, Texaco and many other major industrial companies. Over 120,000 contractors have already been trained, with many more scheduled for training next year.

Passport to Safety for supervisors

In addition to the 10 modules above, Supervisors have an extended version, outlining their duties and responsibilities, plus training in how to give tool box talks, and how to perform a risk assessment.


Note that the ECITB will only pay the Site General Grant for the two day course content of 10 modules, and so does not cover the third additional day for supervisor specific training.
