e-IHSP course now available on any device
In February 2022, the ECITB launched a fully online version of the Foundation International Health and Safety Passport to give customers greater choice and flexibility on how and when they access health and safety training.
The e-IHSP course content is the same as the face-to-face version of the course and includes a fully proctored end-of-course assessment. It mirrors the CCNSG Safety Passport Course that has underpinned site safety across the UK industry for many years, and which is issued to tens of thousands of learners every year.

Once successfully through the assessment, candidates receive a photographic passport card and certificate to show they can work safely on sites across a multitude of industry sectors, assuring their competence to supervisors and managers.
Up until the end of 2023, the e-IHSP was only available on laptops and desktops, but now anyone with access to the internet can sit the course via any smart device, including mobile phones and tablets.
Access to the course is through training providers licensed by ECITB Global. It typically takes 6-8 hours to complete and can be done in one go or over multiple sessions spread out over a month.
The course covers a multitude of topics, including: safe behaviours at work; risk assessments; hierarchy of control; manual handling; use of work equipment regulations; hand arm vibration; working at height; confined spaces; lifting operations; site transport; signage; excavations; electric isolation; environmental concerns; and reporting of injuries and dangerous occurrences.
