    Congratulations to Paul Davies, Craig Kitching and Mark Farrell on passing their Site Management Safety Training Scheme qualification (SMSTS). The qualification is being demanded more by both main contractors and clients in order to show a complete understanding of the health and safety requirements on a project. The course lasted five days and ended with an assessment to test the knowledge of the supervisors. Thankfully all passed with relative ease.

    Passing the SMSTS means that the individual with the qualification who works in the management or planning, organising, monitoring, controlling and administering of construction safety can work on a site.

    The programme followed a step by step course which took the team through a very hands-on lesson format with a strong construction focus. It’s almost unique when compared to any other health and safety programme as these are normally more general and often less practical. The Site Management Safety Training Scheme was originally designed to improve the usable skills of site managers and potential site managers, in order to develop knowledge, awareness and understanding of their legal, moral and social responsibilities in respect of health, safety and welfare on construction sites.

    It has quickly become one of the most highly respected qualifications for anyone with a responsibility for the management of construction activities such as construction, building maintenance or facilities management.
