We’re leading the way on the delivery of Highways England’s Health and Safety Passport scheme

We are playing a crucial role in educating fellow highway professionals by achieving relevant accreditations in order to deliver the new industry-standard training for the Highways England Health and Safety Passport Scheme.

McCann has been approved by awarding body Lantra to deliver the new Highways England Common Induction course that underpins the new Highways England Health and Safety Passport Scheme.

The Highways England Common Induction course was developed to promote best practice standards including Safety, Health, Wellbeing and Environment management. The course raises awareness of the significant risks on the strategic road network, helps eliminate repetitive general site inductions and aims to set common safety standards.

Highways England require that by March 2019, all construction workers on the strategic road network will have a Safety Passport which securely holds all their key ‘authority to work’ information.

It is estimated that at least 50,000 construction workers will require to have the Highways England Common Induction course prior to applying for their Safety Passport.

Training Manager at McCann, Ersoy Errol, is proud that the company has everything in place to deliver such training and sees it as a significant positive that gives McCann an edge within its industry – “Working in close partnership with Lantra means that we are able to take responsibility for, and implement training for fellow professionals in order to ensure that the industry is fully compliant with the highest health and safety standards,”.

“Having all the tools in place to deliver the Common Induction course puts us at the forefront of our industry – ensuring that the next generation of employees across a range of businesses continue to uphold the required standards.”.
