Site Management Safety Training Scheme (SMSTS) Two Day Refresher Course

Overview

Existing Site Managers who already hold a SMSTS certificate that is due to expire can sit the SMSTS Refresher course to refresh their knowledge on health and safety practices, legislative changes and subsequent impact in the workplace. Build UK (formerly the United Kingdom Contractors Group - UKCG) recognises this course as meeting the required standard for all managers working on their sites.

IMPORTANT UPDATE - 6 MONTH GRACE PERIOD WITHDRAWN

CITB have announced they are withdrawing the grace period for the Site Safety Plus Scheme in order to bring the scheme in line with other Cskills Awards courses.

Until now, delegates had a 6 month ‘grace period’ whereby they could still sit the refresher course up until 6 months after the end date of their certificate.

This change now means those who currently hold a SMSTS certificate should ensure they know when their certificate expires and must attend the 2 day refresher course (£290.00 pp) PRIOR to the end date on their certificate. Any delegate who does not attend prior to the end date of their certificate will be required to attend the full 5 day course priced at £450.00 pp.

The current grace period process will continue until the 31st of December 2015. After that date the grace period will not be valid without a formal appeal to the CITB.

Who should attend?

Project managers, site managers and supervisors who have previously passed the full SMSTS course or subsequent SMSTS refresher course and can provide proof of attendance.

Duration

The SMSTS Refresher course lasts 2 days.

Aims and objectives

The SMSTS Refresher course aims to help site managers, agents and supervisors to:

  • Improve awareness of recent developments in construction, legislation and health, safety, welfare and environmental issues
  • Identify measures that will assist the practical implementation of responsibilities established by new legislation, and new working practices.

Outcomes

On successful completion of the SMSTS Refresher course, delegates will be:

  • Aware of and able to implement all updated health, safety, welfare and environmental legislation which affects them in their role as a manager
  • Aware of and able to implement new guidance and industry of best practice
  • More aware of their duties and responsibilities with regards to health, safety, welfare and the environment.

Delivery

The preferred method of delivering the SMSTS Refresher course is on two consecutive days. CSkills Awards recognises that training providers may have to deliver this course as two separate non-consecutive days on occasion to meet client needs; however, every effort should be made to run the course by the preferred method. It is important that continuity of training is maintained on this short intensive course.

Attendance

Delegates are required to attend both sessions, since without full attendance and achievement in the examination the renewal of the Construction Site Manager’s Safety (SMSTS) Certificate cannot be made.

Delegates must attend the days in order and, where not on consecutive days, must complete the course within two weeks. Delegates unable to attend both days due to extenuating circumstances (e.g. certificated sickness) will need to enrol onto a new SMSTS Refresher course in order to maintain continuity of learning outcomes and attend both days again.

Eligibility

Only those delegates who hold an existing SMSTS or subsequent SMSTS Refresher course and provided evidence to the training provider before attending the course are eligible to attend the SMSTS Refresher course. Failure to attend the SMSTS Refresher course prior to the expiry of an existing certificate will require delegates to re-enter the scheme by completing the full SMSTS course if they wish to remain in the scheme.
