The 5 day CITB Site Safety Plus SMSTS training course is designed for site managers, site agents and persons who are, or due to be, responsible for planning, organising, monitoring, controlling and administering groups of staff and a workforce.
It is classroom-based and tutor-led with a combination of assessment processes involved.
The SMSTS course covers all relevant legislation, including the 2015 CDM changes, and other aspects which affect safe working in the building, construction and civil engineering industries. It highlights the need for risk assessment in the workplace, the implementation of the necessary control measures and adequate communication to sustain a health and safety culture among the workforce.
The SMSTS certificate is valid for 5 years. In that period candidates must sit the SMSTS Refresher course in order to renew their SMSTS certification. The refresher course then gives you a further 5 years qualification.
