Production Safety Passport
The Production Safety Passport is a scheme that helps productions stay safe by ensuring crew and management have quality training.
The Production Safety Passport (PSP) is an approval scheme allowing freelancers to move from job to job without needing to re-take their health and safety training.
The scheme approves specific management-level courses within health and safety in a variety of key areas, such as construction, production, stunt awareness and locations.
How the Production Safety Passport benefits freelancers
When you take a PSP-approved course, you get a secure online record of the training you have successfully completed. You're sent an email with your certificate and a unique certification code, proving you have completed the training. If you have a visible ScreenSkills profile, details of this training will also be shown in the ScreenSkills community directory.
This means you don't have to take the training again when you work for a new production company or broadcaster. It also makes you more attractive as a freelancer because you have industry-approved health and safety training.
(If you are struggling to find evidence of your PSP or have lost your certification code, please get in touch at: firstname.lastname@example.org)
