SSG Contractor Safety
SSG Contractor Safety is an online safety course for contractors. The course provides basic expertise and enhances risk awareness among contractors who often work in high-risk environments. The exercises raise awareness of how to deal with hazards of various kinds in the industry. This course aims to improve the safety culture and reduce accidents in the workplace.
It takes about two hours to complete SSG Contractor Safety – Basic Orientation. You can take the training anywhere, anytime, as long as an internet connection is available. The course ends with a final test with certification, and a diploma is issued afterward. Results are valid for three years.
Both the plant and contracting companies can rest assured that all contractors, whatever their occupational group and nationality, have the same basic, necessary safety knowledge before work starts in according with an industry standard that has been tried and tested for ten years.
Some of our clients also have a Local SSG Entre course as a supplement to the basic course to communicate company specific and practical information to their contractors and to focus on industrial / company specific work environment and risks.
