CITB Courses. From Health & Safety Awareness to Temporary Works Supervisor, We Have You Covered

Construction is a high-risk industry, with numerous hazards and potential dangers present on site. As a professional in this field, you play a crucial role in maintaining safety. It is therefore essential for you to have a solid understanding of health and safety regulations and practices. That’s where the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) comes in. At Lighthouse Safety, we offer a range of CITB courses that are designed to equip you with the necessary knowledge and skills to work safely and efficiently on construction sites, contributing to a safer and more productive working environment.

 

The Health & Safety Awareness course is suitable for anyone working in the construction industry, from site workers to supervisors and managers. It covers the basics of health and safety, including risk assessment, accident prevention, and the importance of following regulations. This course is essential for anyone looking to gain a CSCS (Construction Skills Certification Scheme) card, as it is a mandatory requirement for all individuals working on construction sites.

For those in managerial roles, we offer the Site Management Safety Training Scheme (SMSTS) course. This five-day course is designed to provide managers and supervisors with a comprehensive understanding of health and safety regulations and their responsibilities on site. It covers risk assessment, health and safety legislation, and effective communication. This course is ideal for those looking to progress in their career and take on more responsibility on construction sites.

For those who have already completed the SMSTS course, we also offer the SMSTS Refresher course. This two-day course is designed to update individuals on any changes in legislation and refresh their knowledge of health and safety practices. It is recommended that this course is taken every five years to ensure that managers and supervisors are up to date with the latest regulations.

Supervisors play a crucial role in ensuring the safety of workers on construction sites. That’s why we offer the Site Supervisor Safety Training Scheme (SSSTS) courseThis two-day course is designed to provide supervisors with the necessary knowledge and skills to effectively manage health and safety on site. It covers topics such as risk assessment, accident prevention, and effective communication. This course is ideal for those looking to progress in their career and take on more responsibility on construction sites.

Similar to the SMSTS Refresher course, we also offer the SSSTS Refresher course. This one-day course is designed to update supervisors on any changes in legislation and refresh their knowledge of health and safety practices. It is recommended that this course is taken every five years to ensure that supervisors are up to date with the latest regulations.

Another vital role on construction sites is that of a Temporary Works Coordinator (TWC). This individual is responsible for managing the design, installation, and maintenance of temporary structures, such as scaffolding and formwork. Our Temporary Works Coordinator course provides individuals with the necessary knowledge and skills to effectively carry out this role. It covers topics such as temporary works design, risk assessment, and communication with stakeholders.

We also offer a course specifically designed for temporary works supervisors (TWS). The TWS course covers the same topics as the TWC course but focuses on supervising and managing temporary works on-site.

At Lighthouse Safety, we are dedicated to providing high-quality training to individuals in the construction industry. Our experienced and qualified trainers, who bring a wealth of knowledge and experience in the field, deliver our CITB courses. You can trust in their expertise and feel confident in the training you receive. 

In addition to the CITB courses mentioned above, we also offer a range of other health and safety training courses, including NEBOSH, IOSH, first aid, fire safety, mental health and manual handling. These courses are designed to equip individuals with the necessary skills to handle emergencies and prevent accidents on construction sites.

In conclusion, our CITB courses at Lighthouse Safety are not just about gaining knowledge and skills. They are about your career and your safety. They provide individuals with the necessary knowledge and skills to work safely and efficiently on-site, ultimately contributing to a safer and more productive working environment. Whether you are a site worker, supervisor, or manager, we have a course that can help you progress in your career, open up new opportunities, and ensure your safety and that of others on construction sites.
