SMSTS Courses Leicester
The Site Manage Safety Training Scheme (SMSTS) is designed specifically for managers or owners who are in the civil engineering or construction industry. It allows workers and project managers to be certified at a management level for the responsibility of a construction site and the safety of the workforce. This course is ideal for those who are currently site managers or who are about to be promoted to a site manager role.
The SMSTS course is also great for those who are owners or managers of a construction company as the course provides in-depth knowledge on the latest CDM – Construction Design Management rules.
Responsibilities of a Site Manager
There are certain legal duties towards a civil engineering project manager or a team leader for a construction site. Not only are they responsible for the health and safety of the workforce, but they also must consider the environmental impacts on the site and surrounding area. The main purpose of this course is to equip managers with the correct skills and knowledge so that they are able to understand the legal responsibilities required and also how to deal with certain situations on site.
