The Creative Industries Safety Passport is a one day health & safety course designed specifically for workers, employed or freelance, working in film, TV, theatre and live events. It promotes a safety culture based on personal responsibility for safety. This means that it encourages delegates to be pro-active in their own safety and the safety of others.
It is a level 2 qualification that is valid for three years and comes with a workbook and a robust credit card size ID card with a HoloKote finish which is tamper proof. All Safety Passport holders are registered on the IOSH central database so verification is an easy process. With so many employers asking for proof of health and safety training BECTU is providing an accredited qualification that is relevant to creative industries workers.
