What individuals within the industry will be affected by the Safety Passport Scheme?

Who will be affected by the Safety Passport?
Initially, the safety passport scheme is aimed at all operatives, supervisors and managers working below ground on the construction phase of a tunnelling project. The course is not limited to those solely working in the tunnelling discipline but is for all individuals concerned. This will therefore include M&E and other specialists working alongside the tunnelling operatives.

The management and control of those required to do the safety passport course will be provided by the site contractors and project managers; it will be up to each project or organisation to ensure that their operatives, supervisors and managers have successfully completed the course.

It is planned in the future that further developments of the passport scheme will apply to individuals working in the fit-out or maintenance stages of each tunnelling project and not just the construction stage.
