CITB Site Manager Training in London

The construction sector in London is booming, with many large and small-scale infrastructure developments currently underway in the capital.

The challenge for developers and construction firms is ensuring they have got the skills in-house to meet ever-evolving health and safety laws.

CITBs’ Site Management Safety Training Scheme (SMSTS) course covers all relevant legislation affecting safe working in the building, construction and civil engineering industries. It highlights the need for risk assessment in the workplace, the implementation of necessary control measures and adequate communication to sustain a health and safety culture within the workforce.

This course is endorsed by Build UK as the standard training for all construction managers.
