Why a passport card

A card is a quick, practical way of confirming a worker’s training credentials. The cards are ideal for contractors or multi-site workers. They can be used to show the standard and level of training; as an identification card and as a site card.

Key benefits

  • The cards are a simple way to demonstrate that you value health and safety.
  • Contractors and multi-site workers prefer a card to a certificate, as it’s more handy and portable.
  • Using a card to show that workers have basic training saves time on inductions – they’ll just need site-specific training.
  • They demonstrate that training is up to date – each passport expires after three years.
  • Security features include a photo, hologram and signature, meaning they’re more tamper- and fraud-proof than a certificate.
