Site Management Safety Training Scheme (SMSTS)
About this course:  Our five-day SMSTS course is designed for site managers, persons who are or are about to be responsible for: planning, organising, monitoring, controlling and administering staff within a construction environment.  The course covers all relevant legislation and other aspects which affect safe working in the building, construction and civil engineering industries. It highlights the need for risk assessments 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 course is endorsed by Build UK as the standard training for all construction managers. 

Aims:  To help site managers to: 

  • Manage health and safety on site in accordance with current legal provisions and within the context of their management role.
  • Develop an understanding of responsibility and accountability for site health, safety and welfare. 
  • Recognise that a safe site is efficient, economical, productive and environmentally friendly. 

Assessment:  Assessment will be by an end of course exam paper, the completion of four core exercises and a trainer review, for which the delegate will need to gain a PASS in all elements of the review. The exam demonstrates to external bodies that the certificate is only awarded to successful delegates following both an assessment and exam. Delegates are expected to participate during the course.

Delegate numbers:  The minimum number of delegates per course is 4. The maximum number of delegates per course is 20.

Duration:   This is a five-day course
