What is the SOLAS Safe Pass Programme?

The purpose of the SOLAS Safe Pass Health and Safety Awareness Training Programme is to ensure, over the course of time, that all Construction site and Local Authority personnel, will have a basic knowledge of Health and Safety, and be able to work on site without being a risk to themselves or others who might be affected by their acts or omissions.

The SOLAS Safe Pass Programme has been developed following an initiative by the Construction Industry Training Committee. This initiative was incorporated into the Construction Safety Partnership Plan which was launched by Tom Kitt T.D., Minister for Labour, Trade and Consumer Affairs. Detailed consultation took place between FAS and Expert Working Groups representing the Social Partners with the support of the Construction Industry Training Committee. The consultation focused on the content and delivery of the Safe Pass Programme and took into account the target group to whom it will be delivered.

Aims of the Programme

  • Raise the standard of safety awareness in the Construction Industry
  • Ensure that all site personnel undergo basic health and safety awareness training with the view to making a positive contribution to the prevention of accidents and avoidance of health hazards
  • Maintain a register of personnel who have received such training.
  • To provide all participants with a SOLAS Safe Pass registration card which will indicate that the holder has attended a formal course in health and safety awareness.
