What Will I Gain from Attending a CITB SMSTS Course?

If your business is based in the construction sector and you’re looking for an established accredited training course recognised by the Construction Industry Training Board to strengthen workplace health and safety best practice at the management level then you might have considered looking at an SMSTS (Site Managers Safety Training Scheme).

Known as a highly reputable board for construction industry-related training the CITB runs a lot of health and safety courses, from awareness training to site managers courses a qualification that carries the CITB seal of approval can be deemed trustworthy.

Recognised as the finest site management qualification available the SMSTS goes into detail regarding health and safety in association with the current legal guidelines. However, you may be wondering is this the right course to put my staff through or is this the right course to recommend to my employer? There are plenty of benefits to the SMSTS course other than the end qualification, and Kalu training has outlined them below.

Course flexibility

The SMSTS course is easily slotted in around other commitments including working hours. Kalu pride ourselves on offering a tailored training solution maximising the user experience with minimal disruption to your business. If you would rather train one day a week or take the whole course as a block of time we can accommodate.

Course relevancy

Just some of the things that you will cover on the course include:

  • How to produce and analyse risk assessment
  • The planning, control and operation of a site set up
  • Planning, creating and analyse excavations
  • How safely plan and execute a demolition
  • CDM (Construction Design and Management)
  • Working efficiently and safely in confined spaces
  • Monitoring and controlling scaffolding timeslots
  • Creating and evaluating method statements

Our courses are always tailored to our client’s needs so we can work around your requirements. Unlike a lot of generalised health and safety courses, the Site Managers course is specific to the industry and everything a site manager will need to know is covered in the course.

Furthermore, the knowledge your staff will gain could potentially save a life or prevent an accident from happening in the first place.

To book spaces on our SMSTS courses for you or your staff at our Leicester based training centre, or to enquire about any other relevant health and safety courses, then contact Kalu today.
