SCT stands for Safety and Health (SH) Checklist for Temporary Workers. An SCT certificate allows you to show that your temporary employment agency considers safe and healthy work to be important.
A Safety for Intermediaries and Supervisors SCT diploma (SIS-SCT) shows that you have a basic knowledge of safety, health and the environment and that you can apply this knowledge to ensure that your temporary workers work in safe and healthy conditions.
What and for whom
An SIS-SCT diploma shows that you have basic knowledge of safety, health and the environment and that you can apply this knowledge. You are familiar with laws and regulations, the risks of temporary agency work and the specific situation at the user company. You are a fully-fledged point of contact for clients, management and supplied employees and help your candidate to find his or her place in the SHE system of the user company. In short: with an SIS-SCT diploma you show that you know what is expected of you as an intermediary or manager of a temporary employment agency.
SIS-SCT covers the same subjects as SOS-SCC, but from the perspective of a temporary employment agency. Compared to SOS-SCC, SIS-SCT requires different and more specific knowledge in certain areas. Such as insight into legislation, roles, tasks and responsibilities aimed at borrowing and supplying, and discussing points of attention for the supplied employee. For this reason, you should also obtain SIS-SCT if you already have SOS-SCC.
SIS-SCT is intended for intermediaries and managers of SCT-certified temporary employment agencies and temporary employment agencies that supply personnel to SCC-certified companies. This includes both permanent and temporary employees.
Your SIS-SCT diploma is valid for ten years. After that, you will have to re-sit the examination. You need to keep track of this yourself. You can check the period of validity of your diploma in the Central Diploma Register (in Dutch). Your diploma is only valid if it is registered in the Central Diploma Register.
SIS-SCT and other countries
The Netherlands and Belgium have a long tradition of cooperation in the field of Safety, Health and Environment Checklist Contractors (SCC). As a result, Belgium now uses exactly the same system as the Netherlands. Dutch and Belgian SCC diplomas (including SIS-SCT) are therefore equivalent and valid in both countries.
Your SIS-SCT certificate is not valid in other countries.
