The ConstructionSkills/CITB SMSTS courses are intended for project managers, site managers and senior supervisors, as well as proprietors of smaller companies. Lasting five days, an SMSTS course will provide attendees with the knowledge required to comply with legislation regarding a construction site, such as the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and other regulations.
A broad range of topics are covered on SMSTS courses such as undertaking suitable risk assessments for a construction site, scaffolding, electricity, confined spaces, CDM and much more. This makes SMSTS training essential for construction site managers in order to comply with all associated legislation, as well as ensuring a safe construction site.
CITB SMSTS courses also provide an excellent basis and foundation for further progression onto other courses and qualifications, with those obtaining an SMSTS qualification often going on to further study and qualifications such as the NEBOSH Construction Certificate or even the NEBOSH National Diploma, which is one of the most prestigious health and safety qualifications available.
All of our SMSTS course tutors hold professional membership of the chartered Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH), and have many years of experience in delivering CITB courses and other health and safety training courses, as well as real-life experience.
SMSTS Course Assessment
At the conclusion of the SMSTS course, delegates are required to undertake a short multiple choice assessment. Those who successfully complete the assessment are awarded the ConstructionSkills/CITB Site Management Safety Training Scheme (SMSTS) Certificate.
SMSTS Refresher Courses Also Available
Health and safety training is a constantly evolving subject, with constant changes to health and safety legislation and best practices, not to mention new technology and protective equipment which can be implemented to improve safety on a construction site.
The 2-day SMSTS Refresher course is intended for those who have already passed the full 5-day Site Management Safety Training Scheme SMSTS course within the last five years and can provide proof of attendance. The main objectives of the Refresher course are to improve awareness of recent developments in construction, legislation, health, safety, welfare and environmental health and safety issues; as well as being able to identify measures that will assist the practical implementation of responsibilities established by new legislation and new working practices.
SMSTS Course Cost
Unlike some health and safety training providers who add on extra charges to their advertised prices for items such as certificates and study books, our open course prices include study books, ConstructionSkills/CITB certificate fees and buffet lunch and refreshments each day.
