The UKPIA Petrol Retail Safety Passport Course run by Simpleducks is a 2-day course and provides a number of benefits:
  • Having the correct training for working on UK Petrol Stations, in line with your insurance policies.
  • It is valid for 3 years then undertake a 1 Day Refresher thereafter.
  • Understand how you personally can influence good standards within Health and Safety and the Environment.
  • Understand the value of risk assessment and have the knowledge to recognise when changes to a generic assessment is required.
  • Understand the common hazards associated with working in this sector.


Working within a busy petrol forecourt environment can present many health and safety hazards such as unexpected vehicle movements, distracted members of the public, chemicals, slippery surfaces, tanker fuel deliveries, fire, and explosion through to lone working risks. Working on any forecourt needs to be planned properly so that health, safety, and environment remains a top priority.

The 2-day UKPIA/SPA Petrol Retail for Contractors, delivered by Simpleducks takes the learner through a structured journey for them to gain a better understanding of the benefits of good health, safety, and environmental approach whilst working on Petrol Forecourts.  This is an interactive course from Simpleducks with plenty of different group exercises.  Read our feedback on coursecheck to see what our previous learners say, click here


The SPA/UKPIA Petrol Safety Passport Course by Simpleducks is aimed at all contractors and companies working in the environment of a petrol forecourt either on the Forecourt or within the retail space.

Simpleducks bring a vast amount of experience to the training – see our projects for more info. There is no pre-course preparation required and the course itself is very much interactive. However, exemptions are available for the core day if the delegate holds a recognised Health & Safety qualification. SPA has a number of exemptions from Day 1 of this course, to see if you are eligible for the exemption, click here.


Day 1 – Core Day The Core Day forms a major part in understanding basic health and safety legislation. It covers: Module 1: Organising for Safety - Module 2:  The Workplace - Module 3:  Tools, Plant and Machinery - Module 4: Health - Module 5:  Procedures - Module 6:  Environment

Day 2 – SPA / UKPIA Petrol Retail – Forecourt Contractors Module 1: Hazards on a Petrol Filling Station - Module 2: Controlling Work on a Forecourt


At Simpleducks we ensure that regular assessments are undertaken throughout each day to ensure no candidates are left behind.  Learning is also reinforced with plenty of relevant practical group exercises and getting away as much as possible from Death by Powerpoint - making it also fun to learn with us.

Both days must be attended to qualify for the UKPAI SPA Petrol Retail Forecourt for Contractors (unless candidates have an exemption in place for Day 1 - Core).  Upon successful completion of the assessments, each candidate will be given a letter of pass from Simpleducks.  Safety Passport Cards take 10 working days to arrive after the last day and are valid for 3 years.  A 1-day refresher Course is taken after this but must be taken before the expiry of the last course.
