The CCNSG Safety Passport – National Course

The ECITB has been delivering the best safety accreditation for more than 30 years.

The CCNSG Safety Passport National Course is a two-day training course, giving delegates enhanced health and safety awareness through ECITB’s quality-assured delivery process.

All work exposes people to hazards, this is especially true for the engineering construction industry.  That’s why it is imperative that everyone working on site is correctly trained.

Suitable for all members of the workforce, this nationally-recognised course helps to reduce accidents and lost time incidents on sites.

On completion, successful candidates receive a CCNSG Safety Passport. This is the engineering construction industry safety card, which is valid for three years.
