Upcoming Training Courses

Ottaway & Associates work closely with a CITB Approved Training Provider for the Site Safety Plus Training Scheme.

We are accredited to deliver the following courses under licence for the CITB:

  • Health and Safety Awareness
  • Achieving Behavioural Change (ABC)
  • Site Supervisors’ Safety Training Scheme (SSSTS)
  • Site Supervisors’ Safety Training Scheme Refresher Course
  • The Site Management Safety Training Scheme (SMSTS)
  • The Site Management Safety Training Scheme Refresher Course

SMSTS: With the latest version of the CDM Regulations (2015) upon us, the demands placed upon site managers to follow all the legal requirements are as high as ever. This course equips site managers to understand what CDM and other H&S regulations require and how to comply. It is worth pointing out that the 5 day SMSTS qualification is recognised by the HSE as a way of demonstrating safety competence for your site managers.

The SSSTS 2 day course for supervisors is now well established. All major contractors require that supervisors on site hold this qualification. The course educates supervisors about their legal H&S responsibilities and demonstrates competence.

The one day Health and Safety Awareness Course is aimed at those who are either working in the construction sector of industry or are about to join the industry. This course forms an important part in ensuring that applicants receive adequate training as part of their induction training. It is one of the key stages in becoming CSCS accredited, but is suitable for anyone at operative level whatever their previous level of experience.

The certificates for all Site Safety Plus courses expire every five years. After this period runs out, certificate holders have to sit a refresher course to renew their qualification for a further five years.

We have recently relocated to our new offices which have first class training facilities. Site Safety Plus courses will be delivered from our offices throughout the year on a regular basis. Alternatly, we can run courses at your premises which can be programmed to suit your diary. All we require is a meeting room capable of seating the delegates, and suitable welfare.

"Competence" is a word in our industry that is not going anywhere nor will it be replaced by a new “flavour of the month topic” when one comes along.

Whether we are complying with CDM (a legal requirement) or ISO 9001, we have to ensure and demonstrate that we have H & S competence throughout our layers of company management – The SMSTS and SSSTS courses are certainly the best way for us to do this.

If you would like to talk about this further, please contact us to discuss your requirements.
