Benefits of the Passport
Adopting the Passport as a site requirement is one way an employer, principal or other client can
meet their legal responsibility to take all practicable steps to ensure that employees and contractors
are not harmed while carrying out their work. The Civil Safety Passport is a course designed to ensure
that all workers coming onto site have a basic understanding of their health and safety responsibilities.
Many of India's major contractors have adopted the Passport as a standard of entry to their sites.
What's in the newest version of the Passport?
The highly interactive course adopts a competitive team quiz format, group workshops, discussions, and videos to ensure learning is engaging, enjoyable and motivational. To take advantage of the mix of experienced and inexperienced workers attending, the course highlights the importance of mentoring and role modelling of safe actions.
To drive behaviour change, the course strikes a balance between understanding the rules for being safe and the drivers of worker actions on site. The course examines the life-changing personal consequences of unsafe actions and injuries weighed against the pressure on workers to take shortcuts. Being safe personally, despite what everyone else is doing is a major theme used to drive high level safety performance.
