CITB Construction Skills Site Safety Plus
The ConstructionSkills' Site Safety Plus Scheme is a comprehensive health and safety training programme designed to provide the building, civil engineering and allied industries with a range of courses for individuals seeking to develop their skill set in this area.
They are designed to give everyone from operative to senior manager the skill set they need to progress through the industry. From a one-day Health and Safety Awareness course to the five-day Site Management Safety Training Scheme, our courses will ensure everyone benefits from the best possible training.
CITB Site Safety Plus is the industry standard and must have training for anybody working within construction. The Major Contractors Group have adopted ConstructionSkills' Site Safety Plus Scheme as their standard training requirement for all their Management and Supervisors and those of their supply chains.
HSE Associates Ltd can assist your company by providing the following courses:
