- Company & Industry News
Mentor is now providing the industry specific SPA Safety Passport Course for Quarrying. Training reflects HSE initiatives, covering health, safety and environmental awareness relevant to the extractive and mineral processing industry.
The Safety Pass Alliance has extended the Safety Passport scheme across multiple sectors in an effort to reduce the number of accidents. The initiative is nationally recognised and all quarrying contractors are now expected to hold a Safety Passport. Those completing the course will receive a plastic photo card, a lot like a UK Driving Licence, which is valid for three years. This demonstrates to clients the contractor's awareness of health and safety, enabling them to commence with the job in hand.
Safety Passport training takes place over two days. The first day covers basic health and safety, the second focuses on sector-specific training for quarrying, including health and safety management of quarries, lifting operations, excavations, confined spaces and working at height. Mentor is also offering one day renewal courses for those who are due their three yearly refresher and one day quarry specific courses for those who are exempt from the day one of the basic course.
