CITB - Site Safety Plus

CITB Site Safety Plus ('The Scheme') has been designed to provide the building, civil engineering and allied industries with a framework for training and career development. it is aimed at all levels of the workforce.

The scheme recognises a natural progression from those first entering the industry to those responsible for managing construction work.

A series of courses has been developed to fit into the CITB Site Safety Plus framework. This starts with a health and safety awareness day to prepare for the health and safety test, and then progress to an intermediate level for those about to take on supervisory responsibilities.

The Site Management Safety Training scheme is designed to assist site managers and potential site managers in developing knowledge, awareness and understanding of their legal, moral and social responsibilities for health, safety and welfare on construction sites. This course is the most widely recognised for the construction industry and is supported by a refresher course.


Health and Safety Awareness (One Day Course)

Who is the training course aimed at?

This course is to help those who are about to work, or have just begun to work in the industry to understand the potential hazards they face on-site.

It provides a practical summary of health, safety, welfare and environmental issues, identifying the delegate's responsibility for looking after themselves and others, outlines the employer's duties and explains what should be done if the worker thinks that anyone's health and safety is being put at risk.

A natural progression from this course would be to attend the Site Supervisors Safety Training Scheme or a Supervisor Specialist Skills Course.
