Health & Safety Training

This 1-day introductory course for health and safety is for people who are new to the construction and civil engineering industries. It teaches you the main health and safety issues on construction sites and how these affect your role.

The Site management safety training scheme – Refresher (SMSTS-R) course is for delegates who have previously passed the full Site management safety training scheme (SMSTS) course or subsequent refresher course, and can provide proof of attendance. It aims to bring health and safety knowledge up-to-date, as well as giving a thorough overview of the legislative changes and their impact in the workplace. The course includes a wide range of topics, many building on the previous five-day course programme.

This five-day Site management safety training scheme (SMSTS) course is designed for site managers, agents and persons who are, or are about to be, responsible for planning, organising, monitoring, controlling and administering groups of 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.

This one-day refresher course is for delegates who have previously passed the two-day Site supervision safety training scheme (SSSTS) course and can provide proof of successful attendance. It aims to bring health and safety knowledge up-to-date, as well as giving a thorough overview of the legislative changes and their impact in the workplace. The course includes a wide range of topics which have been affected by changes to procedures, and builds upon the material in the original course.

The two day CITB Site Supervisors Safety Training Scheme Online (SSSTS) is one of the most popular management training courses for site supervisors within the construction industry. This SSSTS training online course is suitable for team leaders, foreman, gangers and anyone who has supervisory responsibilities on a construction site. This SSSTS training online offers the same content but is delivered in an online classroom learning environment.

The two-day temporary works coordinator training course (TWCTC) is designed to assist those on site who have responsibility for managing all forms of temporary works. The course has been designed to give confidence to senior management, and to ensure that those who engage contractors have an assessed standard of knowledge.

This course complements the temporary works coordinator training course (TWCTC) and is designed to provide training for those undertaking the role of temporary works supervisor (TWS), as defined in BS 5975:2019.

This course is designed to provide training for those working in temporary works but who are not undertaking the roles of either temporary works coordinator (TWC) or temporary works supervisor (TWS), as defined in BS 5975:2019. The rationale for the Temporary works general awareness training course (TWGATC) is to:

  • raise awareness and impart knowledge of what temporary works are, how they are used, their safety-critical importance, common temporary works issues, and the temporary works management process
  • raise awareness of roles and responsibilities in the temporary works process
  • set a common standard for the awareness of temporary works across the industry that can be accepted with confidence
  • allow a transferable knowledge base between employers, to avoid unnecessary supplementary training.
