The SPA Safety Passport Scheme course is designed for all contractor site personnel who work on petrol retail forecourts and is controlled and monitored by the Safety Pass Alliance.
The SPA Safety Passport Scheme is an industry led solution to the problem of providing adequate and auditable safety training for all employees and self- employed who should, as a result, be able to work at significantly less risk to themselves and others. Companies who have adopted the Safety Passport schemes have seen demonstrable reductions in accident rates.
The content of the Petrol Retail contractor’s course was determined by an industry working party of safety advisors including all the UK leading petrol retail companies, UKPIA and COGENT (the relevant sector skills council).
The course covers:
• Organising for safety
• Workplace safety
• Plant and machinery
• The environment
Day Two – Petrol retail day
