Several PEME engineers, working on a plant maintenance contract with Arla Foods, have successfully completed the Client Contractor National Safety Group (CCNSG) Safety Passport training.
PEME has a robust internal safety infrastructure including Safety Training and tool-box talks. Some of our clients however also require CCNSG safety passports to be held. This involves attending either a 1-day refresher or 2-day basic safety course and requires a final examination to be passed.
The training was provided by TMS International Ltd. and was organised by PEME Associate Director, Barrie Robinson who said “This training and qualification helps to demonstrate that our staff have good health and safety awareness and also promotes safer working, which is key to our success as a company”.
The purpose of the CCNSG Safety Passport training programme is to ensure that all personnel, working or going on-site, have a basic knowledge of health and safety, after appropriate site induction, to work on-site more safely with lower risk to themselves and others. After successfully completing a two-day training course individuals are awarded a ‘Safety Passport’ which is then valid for three years.
