245. To ask the Minister for Education and Skills when Solas will commence training again for the security industry; if his attention has been drawn to the fact that safe pass training is required for employees in this industry; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [6220/20]
Safe Pass course providers are currently closed due to the existing Covid-19 restrictions on education and training. As these courses are currently classroom based it will not be possible for these courses to take place at this time.
My Department is actively working with SOLAS and the education and training providers to put in place learning and assessment solutions to assist the return to work for many workers in the construction sector including on-site security personnel.
