Everything You Need To Know About SMSTS Courses

What Is SMSTS?

Industry recognized, SMSTS has been created for professionals who work on construction and building sites, in warehouses or any industry where health and safety are of increasing importance due to the nature of the work done.

SMSTS or Site Management Safety Training Scheme has been implemented to promote and secure that a robust health and safety regime is in place on particularly dangerous or hazardous work sites.

Who’s It For?

An SMSTS Qualification or Site Management Safety Training Scheme is a course that benefits mainly managers, site supervisors or anyone who has responsibility for managing a workforce in the construction industry.

The duty of care falls on the person in charge but benefits everyone on site.


What Else Do I Need To Know?

There are two courses; the first is the course and test and the second is a refresher course. The refresher course is great for those who have not worked in a while, if laws and regulations have changed since they first took the test or if there has been an increase in incidents on their site.

The course itself covers all health and safety aspects in site and once covered you can move on to the test portion of the course.
