Safe pass Replacement

Safe pass Replacement

The SOLAS Safe Pass Programme was developed following an initiative by the Construction Industry Training Committee. This initiative was incorporated into the Construction Safety Partnership Plan which was launched by Tom Kitt T.D., Minister for Labour, Trade and Consumer Affairs in October 2000.

Detailed consultation took place between SOLAS and expert working groups representing the Social Partners with the support of the Construction Industry Training Committee. The consultation focused on the content and delivery of the SOLAS Safe Pass Programme and took into account the target group to whom it was to be delivered.
