Safe Pass is a safety awareness training programme for construction workers. This one-day programme provides workers with a basic knowledge of health and safety to make them aware of the inherent dangers on work sites so that they will not be a risk to themselves or to their co-workers who work alongside them.
Raise the standard of safety awareness in the construction industry;
Ensure that, over time, all site personnel undergo basic health and safety awareness training to enable them to work on-site without being a risk to themselves or others who might be affected by their acts or omissions;
Maintain a Register of personnel who have undertaken the Safe Pass Programme;
Issue a SOLAS Safe Pass Registration Card to those who successfully complete the programme which informs employers that the card holder has attended a formal course in health and safety awareness.
