Safe Pass course aim

All construction workers in Ireland  are required by law to hold a valid Safe Pass Registration Card, which is valid for 4 years. This includes apprentices and trainees. Upon completion of this one day mandatory health and safety awareness course attendees will receive their Card.

The aim of Safe Pass training is to raise the standard of safety awareness in the construction industry, and to provide safety training for trades on the correct practices to be observed by those working onsite. This is required in order to avoid health hazards and prevent accidents to themselves and to others.
