Description

The Creative Industries Safety Passport

The 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 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 Creative Skillset’s National Occupational Standards in Health & Safety X2, X3 and X3.5 and the BECTU/TMA 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.

What is the course content?

The course 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 5 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, insurance, safety reps & inspectors

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, manual handling, slips and trips, work equipment, hazardous substances & noise

Common workplace measures; this covers working time, welfare, personal protective equipment (PPE), signs and signals, first aid, accidents, accident reporting, driving, stress, violence, lone working, alcohol & drugs and fire & the environment

Personal responsibility for safety; this looks at how an individual can make a difference

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 two assessment papers which both require a seventy percent (70%) pass mark to be eligible to receive a passport. The first is a twenty question written paper with multiple choice and written answers and the second is a spot the hazard risk assessment paper.
