The ETTE project developed a European safety training for stage workers with a corresponding safety passport. The training is based on 10 ESCO competences that every employee working on the stage should master:
- Working with respect for your own safety.
- Contributing to a safe and sustainable working environment.
- Working ergonomically.
- Use personal protective equipment.
- Fire prevention in a performance environment.
- Safe working at height.
- Work safely with mobile electrical systems under supervision.
- Work safely with tools.
- Safe working with chemicals.
- Fit up and rig stage equipment.
A course book has been developed for these 10 competences. The book is open source and can be used as a reference book, for individual study or as a handbook in a learning environment. An extensive manual is provided for teachers. The content of the textbook reflects the vision that safety is a way of life. Everyone on stage, from stage hand to internship mentor, must be able to behave safely, understand the mechanisms behind working safely and develop a critical safety attitude. Unlike other safety training courses, this book is not focused on legislation, but on competence, on mastering safe working practices. It is aimed at “being able” instead of “knowing”.
The passport indicates that the employee has demonstrated that he can work safely in a practical standardized international assessment.
