Bridgwater College has run its first Client Contractor National Safety Group (CCNSG) course, with candidates from G4S (the world's leading international security solutions group) and EDF.
The CCNSG is a consortium of major industrialists from the power generation and chemical industries who recognise the need to train contractors on basic health and safety to a nationally recognised standard. The group has devised a core curriculum which has now become a national training scheme, certified by the Engineering Construction Industry Training Board (ECITB).
The CCNSG Safety Passport is now frequently being asked for as a requirement for contractors wishing to work on engineering construction sites – and will be mandatory for any contractor wishing to work within Hinkley New Build. With an inevitably large nuclear supply chain in the area, Bridgwater College will meet the demand for this accreditation, and has become a CCNSG Safety Passport Approved Training Provider.
Lee Bottomley, Document Controller at EDF, who attend the first CCNSG course at Bridgwater said:
“There was a good level of interaction on the course. The trainer was great - very engaging.”
Bridgwater College regularly runs the CCNSG National Course, Supervising Safety Course and the Renewal Course. For specific course dates click on the links above or call our Business Development Team on: 01278 655111.
