EUSR

Safety, Health and

Environmental Awareness Schemes (SHEA)


What is SHEA?

Our SHEA schemes cover training for the essentials of safety, health and environmental awareness; designed for those working across the energy and utilities sector.

All of our EUSR courses can be completed in 1-day and are available at our training centres and at your suitable premises.

Each SHEA scheme consists of core modules plus contextualised industry specific modules. We currently have SHEA schemes for the following industries:

Safety Health and Environmental Awareness (SHEA) Gas


About the Scheme

Our Safety Health and Environmental Awareness (SHEA) suite of schemes have 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 Safety Health and Environment Awareness (SHEA) Gas scheme is designed for individuals who require access to operational sites within the gas industry, both permanent and temporary, at all levels including operatives, supervisors and management.

The SHEA Gas scheme comprises of nine modules. Six modules are ‘core’ modules and are relevant for all utility industries and support workplace practice in relation to health, safety and environmental law. Three modules provide the gas industry specific content.  It is designed to provide evidence that an individual has demonstrated an appropriate level of knowledge, understanding and behavioural awareness. Individuals must complete all nine modules and pass the SHEA Gas assessment to gain EUSR SHEA Gas registration. 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 Gas is for five years from the date of assessment.


Conversion

Where an individual already has a SHEA registration on EUSR and they require registration for another SHEA scheme they can sometimes undertake a reduced programme 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.

SHEA Conversion is available when the ‘conversion’ occurs within two years of the registration date of the original SHEA scheme.

Registration gained from a ‘conversion’ will expire on the same date as the original SHEA scheme. 

For example: If your EUSR registration for SHEA Power is dated 09/05/2018 and you use modules in this scheme to access reduced training and assessment for a SHEA Water registration, both registrations will expire on 08/05/2021.

SHEA Conversion was formerly known as ‘SHEA reciprocity’ and ‘SHEA transition’.


CSCS Partner

The SHEA Gas scheme is partnered with CSCS to allow gas industry workers access to construction sites for purposes of utilities work, without the need for a separate CSCS card.
