Site Safety Courses
Many businesses can often have sites that are large and busy, and some may work overnight. For companies that include more than one set of premises in different locations, site management training
is a great way to ensure peace of mind and safety on all sites, knowing that the site managers and site supervisory staff has been trained to a nationally approved standard. Site management training
can be completed by sending staff on a courses run by an approved or accredited training provider, who will then issue the relevant qualifications upon completion.
Within the construction sector the CITB (Construction Industry Training Board) offer a range of approved courses delivered nationwide by approved training providers. The site management training
that will be necessary can vary depending on the industry in which it will be needed, but within the construction industry the 5 days SMSTS course is widely recognised by employers including those within the UK Contractors Group as being a recognised standard for site management training
. There is also a 2 day SMSTS refresher course, for those who need to update there current certification.
For customers who are unsure about which course best suits their needs, all good providers should offer a method of contact either by phone or email, which will allow them to give advice and help on the various courses that they offer. This is a great way to get professional advice for those who are perhaps new to booking this type of training for their staff, and should be a good way to fill in any information that has not been supplied by the website.
Many managers and business owners are concerned about the time that will be needed to train staff, and are not keen for their workforce to miss too much time from their daily schedule. This can be a problem if a few members of site management staff are being sent for training at the same time, and many course providers will be able to offer various dates and delivery styles to suit different needs. Some may prefer to complete training in one block of a few days, whilst others may find it more convenient to send staff for training one day a week over the course of a few weeks. Any good provider should have a large range of courses available with different training schedules to suit any business.
