CCNSG Safety Passport Renewal Course (ECITB) - Bridgwater & Taunton College

Course Overview

Please note: The ECITB have announced that the three month grace period to renew your CCNSG card will end on 1 April 2022.

Background to the Scheme

The Client/Contractor National Safety Group, or CCNSG, is a consortium of major industrialists from the power generation, steel, oil, gas and chemical industries who recognised the need to train contractors on basic safety to a common standard. The group has standardised basic safety training and devised a core curriculum which has now become a national training scheme.

Representatives from major clients serve on the CCNSG steering group and there is also representation from contractors, training providers, trade unions and the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). The CCNSG meets regularly to ensure that standards are being maintained and that the content of the training scheme continues to meet current safety legislation and safety practices.

This refresher course covers basic site safety including:

  • Safe behaviour at work
  • Safe place of work
  • Confined space entry
  • Excavations
  • Permit to work systems
  • Safe use of access equipment and working at heights
  • Site transport
  • Protecting the environment
  • Safe lifting and manual handling
  • Safe systems of work
  • Asbestos
  • Hazardous substances
  • Electricity
  • Isolation
  • Hand-arm vibration
  • Noise

Assessment Methods

This is a one day refresher course with a test at the end of each session.

Progression Options

Course Summary

Course Title CCNSG Safety Passport Renewal Course (ECITB)
Entry Requirements

A CCNSG Safety Passport which is about to expire or has expired within the
last three months.

Due to a number of CCNSG courses being cancelled at short notice the ECITB
recognise that some delegates, when able to re-attend a course, will have a card
that has exceeded the 3 month expiry grace period for renewal. In the majority
of cases that will be at no fault of the delegate and as such the ECITB will be
extending the grace period for renewal to 6 months from anyone attending a
course after Monday 16th March 2020. This extension will be reviewed regularly
over the coming months and updates communicated accordingly.

I found the entire experience of studying my Level 2 course really rewarding, that I decided to further my knowledge by completing a Level 3 course. I’m continually learning new skills and it’s really helping my professional development in the workplace.
