SHEA Core is a completely different approach to safety and health training. It’s a high-impact program designed to be fun and get people fully involved. The first-class, jargon-free content is based on what people need to know in practice, and not off-putting legal language.
Our Safety Health and Environmental Awareness (SHEA) suite of schemes has been developed in collaboration with industry to provide a uniform approach to health, safety and environmental awareness training across the utilities sector, in line with Health and Safety Executive guidelines.
Our SHEA Core scheme is designed for individuals who require access to operational sites, both permanent and temporary, at all levels including operatives, supervisors and managers.
The SHEA Core scheme comprises of six modules. These six core modules are relevant for all utility industries and support workplace practice in relation to health, safety and environmental law. It is designed to provide evidence that an individual has demonstrated an appropriate level of knowledge, understanding and behavioural awareness. It is an Energy & Utility Skills Passport scheme and does not indicate any level of technical competence or skilled expertise.
Registration on EUSR
Registration is based on successful completion of a training programme and assessment. Training is delivered through a network of Energy & Utility Skills approved trainers and they all deliver the same training programme and assessment. The training usually lasts about one working day and is interactive, with trainer-led activities plus individuals are invited to share and discuss their own experiences with the group.
EUSR registration for SHEA Core is for three years from the date of assessment.
Where an individual already has a SHEA registration on EUSR and they require registration for another SHEA scheme they can sometimes undertake a reduced program of training and assessment for the additional SHEA scheme; the modules in one SHEA scheme can ‘count’ or ‘be converted’ towards achievement of another SHEA scheme.
All SHEA schemes contain the same SHEA core content, SHEA Core, which means the current SHEA registration can be used as ‘Recognition of Prior Learning’ (RPL). This means no duplicate learning or assessment is already covered.
Historically this was called ‘Conversion’ because some of the modules of the current SHEA registration is ‘converted’ into a new SHEA registration.
There are some rules for using RPL in SHEA – there must already be a current and valid SHEA EUSR registration in order to take the Additional SHEA modules towards a further SHEA registration. The start date of the further SHEA registration will be backdated to the start date of the current SHEA; this is important as this aligns the timing of the SHEA Core renewal modules.
Registration gained from an ‘addition’ will expire on the same date as the original SHEA scheme.
For example: If your EUSR registration for SHEA Core is dated 09/05/2021 and you use modules in this scheme to access reduced training and assessment for a SHEA Water registration, both registrations will expire on 08/05/2024.
SHEA Additional was formerly known as ‘SHEA Conversion’, ‘SHEA reciprocity’ and ‘SHEA transition’.
