Aims and Objectives

The SMSTS 5 day course aims to help site managers, agents and supervisors to:

  • manage health and safety on site in accordance with current legal provisions, and within the context of their management or supervisory role
  • develop an understanding of responsibilities and accountability for site health, safety and welfare
  • recognise a safe site is efficient, economical and productive.

At the end of the SMSTS training course, delegates will be aware of, and able to:

  • implement all health, safety, welfare and environmental legislation which affects them during their daily work
  • implement new guidance and industry best practice
  • state their duties and responsibilities with regards to health, safety, welfare and the environment.

Assessment and Certification

The method of assessment on SMSTS courses will be by exercises, a case study and an end of course examination.

SMSTS training certificates are valid for 5 years. However, due to continuing changes in legislation, technology, environmental management and cultural behaviour, it is recommended that refresher courses are undertaken within 3 years of completing the original SMSTS course. We also offer the SMSTS Refresher Course.

Course Attendance

Delegates are required to attend all sessions to achieve the Site Management Safety Training Scheme Certificate. Delegates must attend the days in order, in accordance with the course programme, to achieve the necessary learning objectives to qualify for the certificate.

If this is not possible, the Delegate must enrol on a new course and retake the full five day SMSTS 5 day course.

Interactive Homework

To help you prepare you for the multiple choice assessment, you will be provided with interactive revision as part of your course fee. This is random multiple choice questions, that are based on actual assessment questions. You will get immediate feedback, and can use the revision modules as many times as you wish.
