1 Day - Safety Pass Alliance (SPA) Core H&S Course for the ECS | JIB Labourer and Site Support Card


The 1 Day Safety Passport Core Health & Safety Course delivered in London by Simpleducks is accredited by the Safety Pass Alliance (SPA) and covers the basic principles and areas of responsibility for health and safety and the environment. Although this is a stand-alone course, it can act as a starting point for those planning to progress onto sector-specific training as it will allow candidates to be exempt from day 1 of our 2-day SPA training courses. This course also qualifies learners for the ECS Labourer or Site Support Card. This course runs every other Wednesday in Isleworth West London and every other Saturday at the same venue - go to the Saturday course for further details. There is free parking at the venue and it is within a 5 minute walk to Isleworth Train Station.

The Core H&S Course is covered in one full day and provides the following benefits:
  • It will allow delegates to progress onto sector-specific training with ease having understood the general principles of health and safety in the workplace.
  • Provides the understanding of identifying hazards, assessing the risks and ultimately minimising accidents.
  • It helps delegates understand the effects of inadequate health and safety procedures and practices on individuals and employers.


It is imperative for companies to ensure their employees are aware of, and compliant with, Health and Safety regulations and the safest working practices therefore employers will usually ask for evidence of this. This core training course, along with the Safety Passport card gained after completion, will provide employers with the reassurance that the delegate has successfully undertaken an accredited course.


This course is suitable for people working, or planning to gain employment in, a variety of industries and sectors and does not require any previous qualifications to have been achieved. As it forms the first part of any SPA accredited 2-day course, those wanting to undertake further training for specific sector roles will benefit highly from this course.


This course is theory-based and consists of one full day in a classroom environment. You will cover the following 6 core modules: 1- Organising for Safety This module covers the responsibilities put in place by law, of both employers and employees, risk assessments, hazards and their accompanying control methods and vulnerable workers.

2- The Workplace The focus of this module is safety specific to the workplace such as working at height, asbestos and confined spaces. It considers what makes a place safe to work and how individual behaviours can impact the effectiveness of safety measures.

3- Tools, Plant and Machinery The equipment used in the workplace, powered and non-powered, can cause many risks, some of which are caused by the energy that is created during use. Delegates will learn about the risks associated with the various tools and machinery.

4- Health This module focuses on common factors effecting health in the workplace and includes hazardous substances, manual handling, hygiene and the effects of noise and stress.

5- Procedures Delegates will learn about the need for stringent procedures in the workplace and their benefits. This will include first aid arrangements and local emergency procedures.

6- The Environment This will cover environmental requirements on employers and employees (both current and future), pollution and waste control, including the safe storing and marking, and also emergency planning.


A variety of assessments are undertaken throughout the day to ensure delegates are keeping up with the training. This is because here at Simpleducks, we feel strongly about ensuring candidates are not left behind for any reason. We also reinforce learning with relevant practical exercises where possible.

The full day and assessments need to be completed in order to successfully pass this course. At Simpleducks, we provide a letter of completion as confirmation that you have passed the course on the day of completion (this can be used as evidence for an exemption to day 1 of the 2-day SPA courses).

Safety Passport cards take 10 working days following completion of the course and are valid for 3 years. Approaching expiry, a 1-day refresher course can be taken but this must be done within the 9 month window (6 months prior to expiry and up to 3 months after expiry).

Further Information

This qualification is also for those seeking the ECS Labourer or ECS Site Support Card.  It conforms to the ECS requirements as stated within their exemptions page on the ECS website which means you do not have to undertake the ECS Assessment. The Safety Pass Alliance (SPA) Core H&S Course acts as the exemption.

The certificate is valid for 3 years (the same as the ECS Card) and will need to be renewed at 3 yearly intervals.

Simpleducks also run this Safety Passport Course on a Saturday in West London which also provides the exemption you need for the ECS Labourer or Site Support Card. It is accredited by the Safety Pass Alliance (SPA) and is one of the quickest ways for you to obtain the ECS Card - either Labourer or Site Support and it also means you're exempt from taking the ECS Assessment!!
