ISM Training Services specialise in providing accredited training for private and business customers to attain or renew their Safe Pass certificate. Read our Safe Pass Frequently Asked Questions or learn more about our Health & Safety Courses.

Our Safe Pass course provides mandatory health and safety awareness knowledge and certification for construction site workers. The course takes place in our Finglas and Tallaght classrooms over one day, starting at 8:00 am.

Our Safe Pass course and instructors are fully accredited by SOLAS.

What is this course?

Safe Pass is a mandatory health and safety awareness programme. The course will cover all aspects of the construction industry’s health and safety standards and practices to lower the staff’s risk when working onsite. Trainees will be introduced to legislation covering site safety and accident reporting, risk assessments, and safety around construction vehicles and equipment. Read our Safe Pass Frequently Asked Questions or learn more about our Health & Safety Training Courses.

This is a one-day course in our classrooms at either our Finglas or Tallaght Training Centres. Trainees will receive professional and cooperative instruction from our SOLAS-approved Trainer in a safe and quiet environment away from the noise and pressures of the work area.

Safe Pass is operated and managed by SOLAS and governs the training requirements for all construction workers in Ireland. SOLAS maintain a register of personnel who have completed the Safe Pass programme and authorises Safe Pass registration cards to confirm that holders have attended a formal course.

Under the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work (Construction) Regulations 2013, all construction workers in Ireland – including apprentices and trainees – are legally bound to hold a valid Safe Pass Registration Card. An employer’s legal responsibility is to ensure that all apprentices, trainees and onsite security workers have received safety awareness training and have a Safe Pass registration card before they can work on construction sites.

Who should attend?

Attending a Safe Pass course for anyone working on a construction site, including apprentices registered under the Standards Based Apprenticeship Scheme and trainees undergoing Traineeships, is mandatory. Trainees may work as Craft Workers, General Construction Workers, Contracted Drivers Onsite etc. and require a Safe Pass certification before being allowed onsite. All onsite workers must have updated knowledge of health and safety standards and practices to prevent injury to themselves or their colleagues. Trainees who complete this course can access work on any construction site in Ireland.

To attend this training, trainees must be at least 16 years old and have a strong command of written and spoken English, as the course is conducted entirely in English, including a written assessment.

What qualifications will I receive?

All trainees will complete a written assessment at the end of the course. This consists of 20 multiple-choice questions with a minimum pass mark of 14 correct answers. If a trainee does not pass the assessment, they will immediately re-sit it on the same day. A second fail grade will result in a trainee being required to repeat the Safe Pass course on another date.

When you complete the programme, your ISM Trainer will upload your results to the SOLAS card management system. Your Safe Pass Registration Card will be issued to your ISM Trainer about five working days after they upload your information to the system.

Safe Pass Registration Cards are valid for four years, after which time the cardholder must attend another Safe Pass course to update their safety awareness training. Upon completing the training course, a new Safe Pass Registration Card will be issued.
