CCNSG National Safety Passport

Is this qualification for me?

The CCNSG Safety Passport, accredited by the ECITB aims to provide workers with the knowledge and safety skills to employ safe working practices on sites.

The CCNSG (Client Contractor National Safety Group) Safety Passport is the engineering construction industry safety card. Workers must have a valid CCNSG Safety Passport to enter many engineering and construction sites.

Learners who already hold an ACE card, will receive a combined CCNSG/ACE card.

Learners must undertake the full two day course if they have never held a CCNSG Safety Passport, or if their card has expired.

The CCNSG Safety Passport needs renewing every three years.

  • Understanding personal site safety responsibilities
