SSG Entre is a safety training course for industry contractors. It is by far Sweden's most popular safety training course with 200,000 contractors trained so far.
In Sweden over 170 companies, among them SCA, LKAB and Scania, require their contractors to show an SSG Access card 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. The courses offered in the concept aims to increase awareness of the risks and how to handle them. Completing SSG ensure that the contractors have a basic knowledge about risks in a working environment. SSG Entre is web based and therefore the contractor can complete the training anytime and all you need is a computer with internet access. The result are then sent to SSG and once the company's contact person has stored a photography there will be sent an Access card to the contractor.
SSG maintains and builds on the concept in consultation with appointed experts from the Swedish industry. SSG Entre is available in nine languages, Swedish, English, Finnish, German, Polish, Italian, Norwegian, Czech and Danish.
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 Safety Access card has to be presented to gain entry to industrial plants that are signed up to SSG Entre.
The general safety training course is valid for three years. Some local courses have a shorter validity and need renewal more often.
