Who Should Attend?

This Site Safety Plus course provides project managers, site managers, supervisors, business proprietors and client-based personnel with the knowledge and skills to enable them to ensure healthy and safe conditions for construction site employees. The course would also benefit buyers and quality assurance personnel.

Course Content:

The course covers all relevant health and safety legislation pertaining to building, civil engineering, and construction work including new build, refurbishment and demolition. This includes the Health and Safety at Work Act, the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations and the Construction, Design and Management (CDM) regulations.

Delegates will understand the site manager’s role and responsibilities regarding health, safety and welfare. They will learn how to effectively apply their health and safety knowledge in the workplace and be able to develop and maintain a strong health and safety ethos within the workplace.

Risk assessment and the principles of prevention form the foundation of the course. Emphasis is placed on communication skills and promotion of worker engagement, including preparation of an induction.

Occupational health is covered to ensure delegates understand the importance of managing exposure to substances, vibrations, noise and dust.  Delegates will undertake project work relevant to site management including site set up and preparation on site rules.


This is a highly interactive course delivered by means of case studies, classroom discussion and group work. Delegates will be continuously assessed and required to successfully complete a multiple-choice test.  100% attendance is required for eligibility for the final test.  Successful delegates will be issued with a certificate valid for 5 years, after which a SMSTS Refresher course may be undertaken.

The United Kingdom Contractors Group (UKCG) recognises this course as meeting the required standard for all managers working on UKCG sites.
