Highways England Passport Scheme
Highways England Passport Scheme – Common Induction Training
The implementation of the Highways England Passport Scheme has begun. It aims to set a comprehensive safety standard for all workers. This involves the Common Induction Training being completed by more than 55,000 employees in the Highways England supply chain. The scheme will provide each employee with a smart card which will make work ‘Safer, Smarter and Simpler’. The deadline for completion of the Highways England Common Induction Training is fast approaching!
Who is the Highways England Common Induction Training for? And how long is it?
The Common Induction Training is for anyone who accesses Highways England sites. This includes any worker, supervisor, manager, delivery driver, office staff or visitor. A record of the successful completion of the training will be stored on your smart card. The site will scan your smart card using the latest technology allowing them to verify your credentials accurately and quickly. The course is a 1-day programme.
What are the benefits of the Highways England Common Induction Training and the Smart Card?
All Highways England sites will require all entrants to their sites to have completed The Common Induction Training and hold the smart card .
Furthermore, the card will improve various factors such as; entry times to sites, verifying credentials, management of risks concerning employee fatigue.
Highways England state that one of the biggest benefits for employees is the storing of information and records on the card.
This means that a card can last up to five years, which is currently not the case.
Clearly, the smart card will provide a one card system which will make things a lot easier and more efficient.
