The benefits of the site managers safety training scheme
Firstly SMSTS courses or site managers safety training scheme
as they are often known have been developed by the CITB (Construction Training Industry Board) to address all the key aspects of health and safety on site, that managers will need to consider.
As the course content has been standardised by the CITB, training providers that gain the CITB accreditation can deliver the course. Course content usually consists of health and safety legislation, such as the Health and Safety Act and Construction Design Management, specific site hazards like working at heights, confined spaces, excavation, manual handling and PPE and how to deliver briefing and tool box talks, ensuring that the managers’ team is briefed to help the preserve their own and others health and safety.
As the content is standardised, it means that there are locations all over the UK, so you know, no matter where you pick to complete your course, it will meet the accepted and recognised standard.
Remember as well that locations across the UK make it easier for you to attend a course, cutting down on travel time and petrol cost!
Comparison of courses
Another really important advantage of having lots of providers offering the site managers safety training scheme
course, is that it results in competitive pricing. This really benefits the delegate as you can compare the offers of different providers and get yourself a really good deal.
However if you have not got time to call round providers and compare the site managers safety training scheme
options on offer for yourself, why not let an online service provider complete this task for you. With one call or email, they can locate the closest site managers safety training scheme
courses to you, dates that fit best with your schedule and compare prices from multiple providers so you can be sure you are getting the best deal with the minimum of effort on your part. The really exciting thing here is that the good online service providers charge you exactly the same price for the course as the individual providers do, meaning you don’t pay a penny extra for this time and money saving service!
Day release or block?
The first is the day release course. Delegates attend one day a week, over a period of five weeks. This enables them to complete the required hours, fitting in all the CITB approved content, without having to be away from site for long periods of time. This option is perfect for those whose presence is needed on a job, but they still need to get this qualification done.
The second option is the block course. This is when delegates attend for a full five day working week. This can be thought of as an express option, getting the full five days learning into a single week. Great for those that need their qualification ASAP or those that have a lull in a project.
