This is a EUSR Safety Health and Environment Awareness (SHEA) Power Safety Passport Course.
The Utility Safety, Health and Environment Awareness (SHEA) schemes have been established in conjunction with industry to provide a uniform approach to health, safety and environmental awareness training throughout the utilities area, to conform to Health and Safety Executive guidelines.
The power scheme is designed for anyone involved in the operational activities of the electricity transmission and distribution industries that require access to sites, both permanent and/or temporary, including all levels of operatives, supervisors and management.
A Utility SHEA (Power) card lasts for three years from the date of training.
There are ten modules which make up the Utility SHEA (Power) scheme.
Eight are common to all utility industries and form the basis of health, safety and environmental law practices. These are the core modules.
Two additional modules are specific to the power industry and cover power generation and distribution and specific hazards to the power industry.
The course is designed to give on-site evidence that an individual has shown an appropriate level of awareness and knowledge. It is a passport scheme and does not indicate any level of technical competence or skilled expertise.
