CCNSG Safety Passport Supervising Safety Course (ECITB) | Bridgwater & Taunton College

Course Overview

The CCNSG Supervising Safety Course is a one day course for staff with responsibility for supervising safety on engineering constructions sites. The aim of the course is to set the scene within the context of legislation and general health and safety requirements.

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

The CCNSG Supervising Safety Course covers the following objectives:

Planning for safety:

  • CDM regulations
  • Risk assessments
  • Exercise on planning for safety

Communicating safety:

  • Toolbox talks
  • How do you achieve your standards for safety?
  • Getting the message across

Could you do better – review the process:

  • Controls that can reduce risks
  • Create a new risk assessment

Assessment Methods

Assessment is via a test at the end of each session.

Progression Options

Once a CCNSG Supervising Safety Passport is held, the health and safety training requirements to apply for a supervisory post on many engineering construction sites will be met.
