SSG Entre is a safety training course for industry contractors. It is by far Sweden's most popular safety training course with 110,000 contractors trained so far.
In Sweden over 100 companies, among them SCA, LKAB and Scania, require their contractors to show an SSG Entre passport before starting work. For a full list of the companies involved, see participating companies.
Contractors are a vulnerable group who spend time in traditionally risky environments. Unfortunately, industrial contractors are hard to reach for safety training, they are often out working and rarely come together to be given training and information.
SSG Entre is a web-based course, so it is completed in the contractor's own time; all that is needed is a computer with an internet connection. The results are then sent to SSG and once the company's contact has certified the result, an Entre card is sent out to the contractor, as proof that he or she has completed the final knowledge test.
In addition to the general safety training course, several industries have local web-based courses. These are available to all contractors and are administered by SSG. The Entre card has to be shown to gain entry to industrial plants that are signed up to SSG Entre. There is also the possibility of using the Entre passport as a key card since it contains access control technology tailored to the industries in question.
Completing SSG ensure that the contractors have sound knowledge about risks and potential dangers in a working environment- knowledge that is strongly backed by industry. SSG Entre was originally developed for the pulp and paper industry, but has now considerably broadened its horizons. SSG maintains and builds on the concept in consultation with appointed experts from the Swedish industry. The card is valid for three years, after which it has to be renewed by repeating the course.
