APPROVED SPA TRAINING
Showforce is an accredited SPA (Safety Passport Alliance) training provider, offering the Live Events and Working at Height courses to industry professionals from our London and Liverpool training facilities.
The Safety Passport was established in response to the specific health and safety needs within our industry. The SPA is committed to providing a nationally recognised standard of health and safety training for the events industry sector.
The course deals in depth with the legal H&S framework, the responsibilities of employers and employees, and specific issues for our industry such as manual handling, workplace transport, working at height, electricity, noise at work and slips, trips and falls.
Many event venues require personnel to hold the safety passport to gain access to site. Following the one day course, successful candidates are provided with a credit cardcourses. We believe that this external, independent source of Health & Safety knowledge is the way forward to ensure that Showforce remains credible and at the forefront of our industry standards.
