The HSE Passport
In order to achieve legal compliance and to satisfy duty of care obligations, many companies require evidence that contractors have completed basic health, safety and environment (HSE) training prior to beginning an assignment.
This can help to avoid any potential prosecution should a contractor become injured, or cause an injury while working on their premises. Additionally, contractors who are members of the HSE Passport scheme are more attractive to employers.
Progressive Recruitment has signed an umbrella ship agreement with HSE Passport to offer our UK based contractors and UK registered contractors working abroad, simple, fast and affordable access to occupational health, safety and environment training.
What is HSE Passport and how does it work?
HSE Passport helps to manage risk by providing confirmation to an employer that a worker has successfully completed training in basic health, safety and environmental matters.
HSE Passport gives a unique identification card that is evidence of successfully completing the health, safety and environment training. This card will have a picture of the contractor, a unique contractor number and comes complete with a holder and lanyard.
The online training is interactive, engaging and takes between 30- 40 minutes. It contains the following modules:
- Workplace safety
- Use of DSE
- Employee health (trips, slips and lifting)
- Personal safety
- Driving safety
- Environmental issues
