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).
