Site Management Safety Training Scheme (SMSTS)
The Site Management Safety Training Scheme (SMSTS) is an industry-recognised course that provides businesses with all of the necessary skills to fulfil today’s regulatory standards for proof of health and safety enforcement. This course is for Site Managers, Agents, and others who are, or may be, in charge of preparing, organising, tracking, managing, and handling groups of employees and workers. This course addresses the applicable regulations as well as other facets of healthy working in the construction, architecture, and structural engineering sectors. It emphasises the importance of risk management in the workplace, as well as the introduction of necessary control measures and effective communication, in order to maintain a health and safety culture among employees.
Learners will be knowledgeable of and capable of, by the end of the course:
- Implementing all health, protection, welfare, and environmental legislation that impacts them during their everyday work by the conclusion of the training cycle.
- Implement new guidelines and best practices in the field.
- Describe their roles and tasks in terms of health, protection, security, and the environment.
Site Supervisors Safety Training Scheme (SSSTS)
For construction site managers, SSSTS is a CITB-accredited course. The SSSTS course is a globally recognized safety certification that is now required by all managers employed on site by several major contractor organisations. Thousands of participants attend the SSSTS CITB Course every year around the country, and the UK Contractors Group has approved it as the basic training for all supervisors on UKCG sites. Construction skills and occupational safety should go hand in hand, and this safety course highlights the importance of improving safety skills in order to prevent accidents and injuries. Thousands of workers are killed at work every year, including those who work in the building industry. Because of these large figures, it is important that all businesses follow the law and operate a site that poses the least amount of danger to workers. The SSSTS course is not only needed by business bodies, but it is also an excellent choice for those seeking a supervisory position in the construction industry.
The SSSTS course is designed for all construction site supervisors and is the first step in learning about health and safety for every new boss or supervisor. Working in this role entails legal and moral responsibilities for both site staff and visitors. This implies that you should be properly informed on all facets of health and safety. If workers have some complaints about the atmosphere in which they work, you, as the boss or manager of a team, are the first point of contact. This ensures that, regardless of the size of the staff, you must be completely briefed on all facets of site safety. Individuals who complete this SSSTS CITB course will develop a comprehensive understanding of their position in the industry and the importance of effective management.
