  5. 5.   www.sheqfoundation.org   Follow SHEQFOUNDATION on        5  SHEQ Passports      A SHEQ Passport is like any other Passport; it identifies the holder as having undertaken basic SHEQ awareness training and allows the holder access to “passport controlled” workplaces. Safety Passports are a very simple way for workers who move from one contract or company to another to show employers they have received basic training. How do I obtain a SHEQ Passport? You can purchase the Safety Passport book for 20GHC . After you feel you have mastered the contents you inform SHEQ Foundation and we invite you for a half day session were we go through content watch your industry related safety videos and you undergo a written assessment. If you pass you are issued with a passport similar to the Ghana driving license which last for 3 years. Renewal will be online where you undergo another assessment.   How is the scheme promoted? For the scheme to be as widely accepted as possible we need the help and assistance of everyone to help in the promotion. Companies can help by making the scheme conditional and interested parties are invited to be proactive by publicizing and promoting the scheme. What is important to remember is that this is a continuous long term project for the benefit of all industries. All Safety Passport holders will be registered with SHEQ Foundation on a central database.

For contractors, Accreditation can be used to gain competitive advantage in a tight market as most multinationals have safety as number one priority. If your site is audited and the Performance Threshold results are achieved in the Initial Audits the company is recognized through Charter Accreditation at one or more Tiers and invited to be a Charter Accredited company. Ongoing Accreditation Audits throughout the year are used to monitor that the performance threshold is being maintained. The SHEQ Foundation Accreditation program gives clients information they can use to pre qualify and select contractors based in part on safety performance.
