The Site Management Safety Training Scheme (SMSTS) is one of the most popular health and safety training courses, and is intended for construction site managers, project managers and senior supervisors, as well as proprietors of smaller companies. Client-based personnel would also benefit from attending the SMSTS course.

After completing the SMSTS course, delegates should:
- Manage health and safety on a construction site in accordance with the current legal provisions, and within the context of their management or supervisory roles
- Have an understanding of their responsibilities and accountability for construction site health and safety and the welfare of workers
- Recognise that a safe construction site is efficient, economical and productive
Key Topics Include:

Our SMSTS course tutors are qualified and experienced health and safety training professionals with an appropriate background in construction site health and safety.
All tutors hold professional membership of the chartered Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH).
Frequently Asked Questions
During the SMSTS course, projects are undertaken in groups and constantly assessed by the course tutor. At the conclusion of the course, delegates are required to undertake a short multiple choice assessment.
Those who successfully complete the projects and assessment are awarded the CITB Site Management Safety Training Scheme (SMSTS) Certificate.
Each delegate will be issued with SMSTS textbooks to take away and keep, which will assist them both during and after the course and will contain information, guidance and forms to assist managers. The course is designed to be interactive, allowing delegates the opportunity to develop their skills with the support of the course tutor.
