Recently, two of our Project Managers went on a five-day Site Management Safety Training Scheme (SMSTS) Site Safety Plus course which provides Project Managers, Site Managers and Supervisors with the knowledge and skills to enable them to ensure healthy and safe conditions for construction site employees. The course involves a thorough programme of practical and immersive guidance with a focus on construction, unlike any other course. The CITB Construction Skills Site Safety Plus SMSTS training scheme was devised to instruct Site Managers and Project Managers in order to develop their knowledge and awareness of their legal and social responsibilities in respect of health and safety on construction sites.
The United Kingdom Contractors Group (UKCG) recognises this course as meeting the required standard for all managers working on UKCG sites.
The course consists of:
- The Health and Safety at Work Act
- Construction Design and Management (CDM) Regulations
- Risk assessments/method statements
- Recent changes in accepted working practices
- Behavioural safety
- Management of occupational health
- Working at height
- Confined spaces.
We have every confidence that this will help our Project Managers to ensure everything runs smoothly on site without any mishaps, especially during the mad summer period!
