The emss scheme is not another safety passport scheme, but an umbrella for existing passports. It makes use of the considerable knowledge and experience of the people within the organisation to audit and approve existing safety passports, which already meet the industries exacting standards for safety health and environment. The scheme has a second constituent, which is the Competency Logbook. This enables the holder to maintain a portable competency training record that he/she can keep updated themselves. This provides the holder with the flexibility to improve their standards in the best way for themselves and gives the client the confidence to know that the card being carried shows that holder has met the essential minimum standard that they helped to drive.

The emss system takes the commitment to SHE management and performance a step further, by allowing time and funds that would have been used to put operatives through a multitude of very similar passport schemes involving much unnecessary duplication, to be better used for more relevant and specific SHE training requirements for the workforce.
