The Creative Industries Safety Passport

The new health & safety course from BECTU 


What is the Creative Industries Safety Passport?

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 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 approved 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 Creative Skillset’s National Occupational  Standards in Health & Safety X2, X3 and X3.5 and the BECTU/UK Theatre 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 approved qualification that is relevant to creative industries workers.

What is the course content?

The course has been redesigned in 2018 and covers the basics a delegate needs in health & safety as well as focusing on specific hazards that come up in the creative industries.

 The course is split into 4 modules:

 Introducing creative industry safety; this covers why health & safety matters, health & safety legislation, duties of employees, self employed and contractors under the Health & Safety at Work Act 1974, what is a health & safety policy and insurance

 Defining hazard and risk; this covers risk assessments-hazards and risks, competence, risk matrix, controlling risk, what is reasonably practicable, dynamic risk assessments & risk perceptions

  Hazards and practical control measures; this covers electricity, display screen equipment, working at height, specific location hazards, welfare, confined spaces, manual handling, slips and trips, work equipment, hazardous substances, asbestos, noise, personal hygiene, driving, drones, violence, terrorist threats, bullying, stress, alcohol & drugs and fire

  Improving safety performance; this covers health & safety in the workplace, the construction phase, keeping people safe in the workplace, working time, personal protective equipment (PPE), signs and signals, first aid, health surveillance, accidents, accident reporting, safety represenatives & safety inspectors.

The course uses a mix of teaching styles, including video and discussion to enhance the learning experience. Delegates can bring real issues and near miss incidents to increase the relevance of the course. All the trainers are IOSH accredited and have a wealth of knowledge and experience working in the creative industries. 

The course has a two part assessment paper, the first is part has twenty questions mainly multiple choice with a maximum mark of 40 and the second is practical application learning which requires spotting hazards and providing measures to reduce the risk, with a maximum 16 marks on offer. To be eligible to receive a passport you must achieve 24 marks or over on the first part and 10 marks or over on the second part. A total minimum pass mark of 34 is required.

How Much Does It Cost?

From September 2018 the one day course will cost £132 and there will be a discounted rate of £90 for BECTU members. There will be an associate rate of £108. This includes the training, the workbook and the Passport itself. All prices are inclusive of VAT.
