SHEA Core and Water Updates

The redeveloped Safety Health and Environmental Awareness (SHEA) Core and SHEA Water schemes are available for delivery from 15 January 2018.

Key changes

Trainers will see a range of changes designed to enhance the existing strengths of the scheme. These include:

– Scheme Specification: details learner outcomes and provides greater clarity on assessment

– Programme Leader’s Guide: supports the new PowerPoint delivery – providing trainers with a range of delivery ideas, activities and wider reading references

– Multiple Choice Test: updated with new and revised questions

Developed with industry health and safety professionals and trainers

The redevelopment of the course material has been undertaken in collaboration with health and safety professionals for each industry and trainers. Those that have seen the redeveloped course are very positive, for example:

‘The course materials will be a great asset to any trainer delivering the SHEA Core scheme. The inclusion of mandatory & optional activities is a great idea and will really help to get the individuals thinking and also to reaffirm the messages the course is trying to get across.’
