RISK offers Health and Safety in Construction courses

Health and Safety in Construction is a constant challenge to site managers, contractors and developers.

Legislation changes all the time and although great progress has been made in removing risks and reducing workplace accidents, there is still work to be done. At RISK, we are passionate about supporting health and safety in construction and offer a range of training courses to people interested in developing their skills and knowledge and gaining official accreditation.

CITB qualifications

Our CITB-accredited Site Safety Awareness course aims to equip staff working on a construction or civil engineering site with an entry-level awareness of health and safety. It is perfect for new construction and civil engineering industry workers, or those looking for refresher training or preparing for a CSCS Health and Safety Test. The NEBOSH Construction Certificate is ideal foundation training for individuals looking to develop a broader understanding of the management of health and safety risks, within construction.

We also run a full range of CITB Site Management Safety Training Scheme (SMSTS) courses. SMSTS is an industry-recognised course providing companies which need to meet the ever increasing demand for evidence of health and safety compliance with all the relevant knowledge to meet today's legislative demands. If you are involved in the management or planning, organising, monitoring, controlling and administering construction safety, you can only work on a construction site if you are SMSTS- certified.

CITB SMSTS and SSSTS are similar courses but the SMSTS course goes into much deeper detail, as it is designed for managers to be able to implement safety systems within the workplace. The SSSTS course is designed to give supervisors the skills needed to ensure compliance with these systems.
