SPA Quarry Contractor Safety Passport Training

The MPQC/SPA Contractor Safety Passport for Mineral Products course provides all contractors who work within the Mineral Extraction and Products industries with a basic level of Health, Safety and Environmental knowledge.

The Safety Passport Scheme for Mineral Products is designed to raise contractors’ awareness of their responsibilities for safety and enable them to identify relevant hazards and reduce risks as defined by the MPQC.

The safety passport is not a measure of your competence, but it is something all contractors working within this sector are commonly expected to hold.
