Site Management Safety Training Scheme

Course details

The Site Management Safety Training Scheme (SMSTS) is one of the most highly regarded health and safety training courses for the Construction, Building Maintenance and Facilities Management sectors.  There are 1000’s of construction personnel who achieve the qualification each year.

This industry-recognised training course is also ideal for companies that need to meet the demand to supply evidence of health and safety compliance.

This course is designed for construction site managers, agents, and project directors. In addition, any other construction personnel who are, or are about to be, responsible for planning, organising, monitoring, controlling and administering groups of staff and workforce are recommended to attend.

Possession of the SMSTS qualification is one of the competency requirements for site managers in the Approved Code of Practice to the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007. Evidence of training is often required in tender applications and pre-qualification Health & Safety questionnaires.

The SMSTS training course covers the Health & Safety at Work Act and the regulations relevant to the Construction Industry (and other workplaces), including:

  • Site Set Up
  • CDM Regulations
  • Risk Assessment
  • Method Statements
  • Scaffolding Awareness
  • Monitoring Health & Safety
  • Electricity On Site
  • Excavations
  • Demolition
  • Confined Spaces
  • Fire Prevention
  • Management Of Contractors

At the end of the CITB SMSTS course, each individual also has to pass a short test and present a suitable health and safety solution to a site activity which qualifies them for the Construction Site Managers Safety Certificate.

This certificate expires every five years. After this period certificate holders are required to sit the SMSTS two day refresher course to renew their qualification for a further five years.
