The Safety Pass Alliance, or the SPA, is the most prominent safety passport awarding body in the UK. The SPA MPQC Quarry passport is run in conjunction with MPQC (formerly known as EPIC) and counts as a Level 2 QCF qualification.
What does it cover?
The Quarry safety passport (sometimes known as the EPIC card) training course covers topics such as dust, confined spaces and hazard awareness. You can find a full syllabus when you choose a course date below.
Please note: This is NOT the Driver’s Skills card scheme. You will need to call the MPQC themselves on 0115 983 6580 if you require this.
Who needs this passport?
You may require a Quarry Safety Passport if you work on a quarry, in excavation or with mineral products in your job.
The training options for this card include:
–2 Day Course,
– 1 Day MPQC Renewal Course
If you hold any other safety qualifications, you may be exempt from sitting the first day of the 2 Day course. Please get in touch if you think you might hold an exemption as you may not need to attend both days. Please note: the MPQC have announced that from 1st January 2019, there will no longer be any exemptions for the 2 Day Course and delegates will be required to sit both days of the course if they do not currently hold an in date SPA Quarry card. Should you wish to use any exemption such as the CPCS Blue Card, you will need to sit the course before 1st January 2019.
Here is a list of our upcoming SPA Quarry courses. If none of these dates suit you, don’t hesitate to get in touch via the enquiry form, or call us on 0161 926 9510, and we can discuss holding a private course for your team.
