CCNSG meeting the needs of industry
Since it was launched in 1993, the CCNSG has evolved to meet the needs of industry.
Originally the course was called SCATS, not CCNSG. It was created in Pembrokeshire so that all of the local Pembrokeshire businesses who used the same contractors could reduce their induction time.
The course worked so well that businesses in Newcastle and Merseyside also wanted to adopt it. There was concern that this would result in multiple different schemes across the country with no standardisation. So the original author approached the national awarding bodies to see if they would take the course and run it as a national scheme.
That is when the ECITB got involved and launched it as the CCNSG. It has led industry safety for the following 30 years. This classroom-based two-day course provides workers with enhanced health and safety awareness and knowledge through quality-assured training.
