What is Safe Pass ?

The FÁS Safe Pass Health and Safety Awareness Training Programme was designed to ensure that all workers in construction will have a basic knowledge of health and safety and be able to work on-site without being a risk to themselves or others who might be affected by their acts or omissions. From a health and safety perspective, construction workers are bound by law to hold a valid Safe Pass card.

Aims of Safe Pass

• To raise the standard of safety awareness in the construction industry;
• To ensure that all site personnel undergo basic health and safety awareness training with a view to making a positive contribution to the prevention of accidents and avoidance of health hazards;
• To maintain a register of personnel who have received such training;
• To provide all participants with a FÁS Safe Pass registration card which will indicate that the holder has attended a formal course in health and safety awareness.
