The main craft trades (see Listing) have been designated by SOLAS and come within the scope of the Statutory Apprenticeship system, which is organised in Ireland by SOLAS in co-operation with the Department of Education and Skills, employers and unions. Apprenticeship is a demand-driven, workplace and classroom, educational and training programme for employed people aimed at developing the skills of the apprentice to meet the needs of industry and the labour market. The Curriculum for each apprenticeship programme is based on uniform, pre-specified standards which are agreed and determined by industry.

On successful completion of an apprenticeship, a QQI Level 6 Advanced Certificate is awarded; this is recognised internationally as the requirement for craftsperson status.

Report an Incident - HSENI - Controlling Risk Together - Health and Safety Executive Northern Ireland

Since 1 April 2013, employers have the option to report all work related incidents to HSENI, no matter who the relevant enforcing authority is for the business. HSENI, in agreement with district councils, are now offering this new service, in the hope that it will make it easier for employers to report incidents at work. This is especially relevant where it is difficult for an employer to determine who their relevant enforcing authority is. While RIDDOR's over 3 day reporting requirement changed in GB on 6 April 2012, the position in NI remains unchanged at present.
