CCNSG/ETICB (Engineering Construction Industry Training Board) Courses

Information coming soon...

Course Duration2 days
Course Designed forEntry level healthy and safety awareness
Course AimThe aim of the CCNSG Safety Passport scheme is to ensure a basic knowledge of health & safety for all site personnel to enable them, after appropriate site induction, to work on site more safely with lower risk to themselves and others.
Course Content

The two day training course covers the following sessions:

  • Safe behaviour at work
  • A safe place of work
  • Safe systems of work
  • Safety problems and safe solutions

The short CCNSG Safety Passport course involves the active participation of trainees. Taking part guarantees a basic knowledge of health & safety, and related issues, for all personnel working on an engineering construction site. In doing so it supports site induction, and means employees pose less risk not just to themselves, but their colleagues too.

The award of the Safety Passport is subject to the candidate successfully completing a 80 question multiple-choice test paper, with the question content and level set by the participating client safety experts on the CCNSG. Successful candidates receive a plasticised photographic pass that is valid for three years and transferable across sites - an invaluable tool for both employers and employees in this highly mobile and geographically dispersed industry.

A one-day ‘Renewal’ course can be taken to keep knowledge up to date, enhance employee motivation and maintain CCNSG Safety Passport holder status.

Supervisors on a CCNSG Safety Passport course receive additional training which emphasises their pivital role in establishing good health & safety practices and procedures by supervising site and project safety. This additional day for supervisors covers the following sessions:

  • Planning for safety
  • Communicating safety
  • Could do better - learning from our mistakes and identifying the cause.

The ECITB maintains the national CCNSG training database. As with all ECITB courses, the 100 plus training providers that deliver the CCNSG Safety Passport are approved, rigorously monitored and audited.

PAL+ (Powered Access Licence Plus)

Q: What is PAL+?
A: PAL+ is an optional, additional one day of category-specific training aimed at operators working in higher risk or challenging environments.

Q: What is in the PAL+ syllabus?
A: PAL+ includes a short, compact theory session and focuses on practical training. For example, one practical exercise focuses on work in confined overhead spaces; another practical exercise involves driving the machine on challenging terrain. Candidates have to complete a theory test, a practical test and an individual interview.

Q: What qualification does the course lead to?
A: Upon successful completion of the theory test, practical test and interview, operators will have the relevant categories added to their PAL card, e.g. Static Vertical (1a+), Static Boom (1b+), Mobile Vertical (3a+) and Mobile Boom (3b+).

Q: How long is the qualification valid for?
A: PAL+, like the PAL operator qualification, is valid for five years and must be renewed after that. Only those who have been filling out their log books (60 entries over 5 years, 10 of which should be in the final year prior to expiry) will be eligible for a PAL+ renewal test. Those who have not been filling out their log books will have to re-sit the PAL operator course and the PAL+ course again. All renewals must be done before the expiry date.

Q: Who should take the PAL+ course?
A: The course is aimed at trained operators who work in higher risk or challenging environments, e.g. steelwork, work in confined overhead spaces, work on challenging terrain. PAL+ training is open to operators who hold an existing PAL Card qualification in the relevant category.

Q: What is the difference between PAL+ and PAL?
A: The IPAF PAL operator course is certified by TÜV as conforming to the international standard ISO 18878 and meets all requirements for basic operator training. The PAL+ course is intended to be more advanced, challenging and extensive.

Q: I do not hold a PAL Card. Can I still take the PAL+ course?
A: Yes, you must first take the PAL operator course, and if successful, take the optional, additional PAL+ course on another day. Please be advised that taking the PAL operator and PAL+ courses back to back may not be suitable for inexperienced operators. The PAL+ course is targeted at trained operators working in challenging environments. To ensure that candidates get the most out of the PAL+ course, sufficient experience in operating equipment is required.

BetaGuard Scaffold Systems

Turner Access continues to provide safer systems of work with the development of Collective Protection Solution BetaGuard®, an INTEGRAL Advance Guardrail System for use on Aluminium Towers (Patent Pending GB0813177.3).

The BetaGuard® has been designed for compatibility with Turner's BETA and OCTO 250 Tower types, but can be used on all 850mm and 1450mm wide tower types with 500mm or 250mm rung spacing, allowing most tower users to benefit from increased safety.

Assembling and dismantling aluminium towers must comply with the standards set out by the Work at Height Regulations 2005. Hierarchical requirements place collective protection over mitigation options. As an advance guardrail system the BetaGuard® provides Best Practice Collective Protection, but without the Manual Handling problems associated with current Industry practice.

Unique Benefits of The BetaGuard

Benefits include:

  • Not only does the BetaGuard® increase safety throughout the assembly and dismantling process, it also contributes to the stability of the composite tower.
  • The BetaGuard® simplifies tower erection by eliminating the need for both horizontal and diagonal braces, reducing the main components to a total of three.
  • Structural safety is also improved with the bracing integrated into the BetaGuard® frame.
  • Utilisation and asset management is achieved with ease as individual single bracing members more susceptible to loss, damage and theft are replaced.
  • Other benefits of the BetaGuard® include its ability to act as a bridging component to bridge towers, removing the need for bridging lattice beams.
  • Tower erection without trip hazards at base level and a walk in/through facility with high clearance is automatically achieved.
