KOR.u.s are trained and approved by Energy & Utility Skills (EU Skills) to provide Safety, Health & Environment Awareness passport scheme for operatives working within the electricity transmission and distribution industries. The scheme covers basic awareness of health & safety and environmental law in addition to good practice on sites. The Utility SHEA (Electricity) scheme is affiliated with the Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) to allow industry workers access to construction sites for purposes of utilities work without the need to complete a separate CSCS card.
The electricity scheme is designed for all persons involved in the operational activities of the electrical installation, transmission and distribution industries who require access to construction sites both permanent and temporary. It includes all levels of operatives, supervisors and management. A Utility SHEA (Electricity) card lasts for three years from the date of training.
Utility SHEA (Electricity) training comprises of seven modules. The seven core modules are common to all utility industries and form the basis of health, safety and environmental law and practices. It is designed to provide on-site evidence that an individual has demonstrated an appropriate level of knowledge and awareness.
It is a passport scheme and does not indicate any level of technical competence or skilled expertise.
How do I get an Energy & Utility Skills Register (EUSR) Card?
Registration is based on successful completion of a training and assessment by a KOR Utility Services Trainer. Following training, the EUSR approved trainer will authorise and apply to register the trainee. EUSR cards are issued within 28 days of receipt of the necessary completed paperwork, passport size photo and payment. All operatives are issued with a cover note on the day following successful completion of the training and assessment while they wait for their card to be issued. The training session is expected to last for approximately one working day and comprises a trainer led presentation and assessment.
