SPA UK PIA Passport Update, Improve & Renew (Refresher)

The structure of the course has now changed and will no longer follow the pattern of half a day of the Core material and half a day of the Petrol Retail material. Both aspects have now been merged together into one full day package.

The course has been designed to follow “A Safe Day In Your Life in the Petrol Industry” detailing a typical contractors working day including;

• Start of the day preparation

• Drive, Arrive, Take 5, Stay Alive

• Booking in

• Communication (two way)

• Task and site hazards

• Doing the job safely

• Environment and waste

• Completing the correct paperwork

• Task execution (group exercise)

• Completion and hand back

Learning outcomes

Also included is a new “360 Hazard Spotting” DVD which is used to assess and develop each delegates ability to spot hazards on a live forecourt.
