Industry specific authorisations

Good morning everyone

Once again I am appealing to your good nature and depth of experience to help me out. I am starting out a new business that will involving internal (including confined spaces) and external surveying locations for faults / damage. I am aware for the construction industry there are different CSCS cards. My question is do any of you know the equivalent accreditation for the following or any other industries that require surveys ?

Brewing
Pharmaceutical
Food manufacturing
Shipping
Inspecting stadia / large venues
Infrastructure (bridges , large drainage works etc)


Any other industrial experience that you can call on would also be greatly appreciated and of course if you wold prefer to discuss the reply in PM then please do

Many thanks
MOE
 
On the infra side:

Power industry has a number depending on how close to the power you are. Entering a substation fence all the way to entering transformer rooms and cleaning them.

Rail industry has trackside certifications, access within a controlled site, lookout, site leader. Be aware that while network rail certification will cover mainline, London underground and most tram systems have a separate carding process, all different...

Shipping - if in the dockyard you will need dockyard access certs and safety briefs. If on ship then transfer training and sign off, with regular re-certs, and others I think, but not my area yet...
 
I'm in a teams meeting with a chap from a brewery today. I'll see if there is anything specific that he's aware of (as he's in charge of maintenance he'd best know)

Cannot help you out with what you need. I can wish you the best of luck with your new venture.
 
from a brewery based in the south of England - there is no specific qualification for working on-site as a contractor at a brewery. one one site all contractors are escorted, at the smaller site, they have a site induction which covers all they need and away they go.

Having dealt with a large number of Uk and European based food companies Food safety (production) is going to be a bonus. some places have their own specific courses (such as a particular flour mill) as the standard off-the-shelf courses are not suitable.
food hygiene rules are that you have training "commensurate with your roles and responsibilities"
