Production Safety Passport

Your Production Safety Passport is the record of your health and safety training at all the places you have worked. It is a secure online record of the training you have successfully completed courses that have been recognised as part of the scheme. In order to get a Production Safety Passport, you need first to attend one of the Production Safety Passport courses.

Once you have completed the course, you will be asked to provide details of your full name, address and email. You will then be issued with a Production Safety Passport via email. Once you have set up an account on Hiive, the online ScreenSkills creative community, your Production Safety Passport will be displayed as a badge on your profile. 

Once you have a Production Safety Passport then when you work with a different employer you can provide them with your Hiive profile and they will be able to view your training record.

The following organisations are partners in the Production Safety Passport, mutually recognising each other's health and safety training, and working with ScreenSkills to ensure training courses are in line with National Occupational Standards:

Looking for non-production health and safety courses?

The Production Safety Passport covers key production roles. However, if you are in one of the following roles, the Joint Industry Grading Scheme is the right scheme for you:

  • Stunt performer
  • Stunt coordinator
  • Special effects
  • Rigger
  • Scaffolder

Established in 2002, the Joint Industry Grading Scheme is run by BBC, ITV, Pact, Equity and BECTU.

The way that the scheme works is that you submit evidence to the appropriate sub-committee in the form of a portfolio of the on-the-job skills you have gained. The sub-committee then confirms whether you have met the criteria. If you have, you are confirmed as working at a particular grade.

Each scheme has a register of members by grade. In the case of the stunt performers, this is reflected in the publication Spotlight.
