The Creative Industries Safety Passport is a one day health & safety course designed specifically for workers, employed or freelance, working in film, TV, theatre and live events. It will take place on Tuesday, 12 March 2013 from 08:50 to 17:35. It promotes a safety culture based on personal responsibility for safety. This means that it encourages delegates to be pro-active in their own safety and the safety of others.
The course is accredited by the Institution of Occupational Safety & Health (IOSH) under their Passport scheme which is a nationally recognised scheme and follows The Health & Safety Executive (HSE) syllabus guidelines as well as Creative Skillset’s National Occupational Standards in Health & Safety X2, X3 and X3.5 and the BECTU/TMA (Theatrical Management Association) Code of Conduct for Get-in/ Get-outs. It is a level 2 qualification that is valid for 3 years and comes with a workbook and a robust credit card size ID card with a HoloKote finish which is tamper proof. All Safety Passport holders are registered on the IOSH central database so verification is an easy process. With so many employers asking for proof of health and safety training BECTU is providing an accredited qualification that is relevant to creative industries workers.
The full cost of the course is £100 but through CULT Cymru (funded by the Welsh Government’s Wales Union Learning Fund), this one day course costs £25 for union members and £75 for non union members and employers. This cost includes the workbook and IOSH accreditation as well as the passport itself.
