Solas Safe Pass Course times. It is a full day course delivered by an instructor.The door opens at 7.30am. You need to be sitting in your seat in the training room before 7.45am. The course normally finishes around 5.pm. Please note Safe Pass courses are full day courses and follow a timetable & Code of Conduct to ensure consistency. It is important that you are present the whole day. If you arrive late you will not be allowed on to the course. It would be unfair to the instructor and other people on the course if we had to restart again.
Can I pay you on the day of the course? No: Course bookings and payments are taken online. Once booked onto a course, you will automatically be issued with a receipt/invoice.
Will I get a card or card number on the day of the course? No: The Card and Card Number is issued by Solas. The card will be posted to you when the Card is issued. If you pass the course, we will issue you with a letter (comfort letter) to confirm you attended if required.
Is the Safe Pass Card valid in another country? I do not know. Different countries have different laws Check with the Country in Question as they will know the latest requirements.
I did the Safe Pass Course before. Must I do it again? No: From Late January 2023, you will have 2 options on how to renew your Safe Pass card. You can come to us for an instructor led course and get it all sorted in one day, or you can do your own self study (estimated time is 8 hours) and present at an approved training centre for a 45 minute exam. The choice on how you will be yours.
Do you prepare or update Safety Statements? No: We do not update or prepare Safety Statements. If you contact Emerald Health & Safety, they will be able to do the job for you.
