Safety, Health and Environmental Awareness Schemes (SHEA)

What is SHEA?

About SHEA

A SHEA EUSR registration gives confidence there is the required knowledge and understanding to work safely in an operational environment.  The training embeds best practice in health and safety and environmental awareness and supports the HSE’s essential principles for good health and safety performance.

Our SHEA schemes are developed in collaboration with employers and key stakeholders from across the industries in our sector, so the content is relevant – all helping to improve the safety of the workforce and reduce costs associated with injury, illness or accidents.

The industry specific content, sometimes called ‘contextualisation’, makes our SHEA schemes 100% relatable – it’s easier to understand the relevance to the day job – again supporting a safer workplace.

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

We also have additional SHEA schemes including SHEA Cross-Country Pipelines (CCP), SHEA Core, SHEA Drains and Sewers and SHEA SWITCH. To find out more about each of our specific SHEA schemes and how they are contextualised to industry, click on the relevant link above.
