Course Content

You’ll understand how each of the following issues affects work on construction sites:

    • Best practice techniques and legal compliance
    • The environment and why it matters
    • Environmental management systems
    • Waste management
    • Pollution prevention and water management
    • How to be a good neighbour: statutory nuisance, communication, archaeology and heritage
    • Energy and resources
    • Being a responsible contractor

The course is designed for staff with management or supervisory responsibility.

This is a highly interactive course delivered by means of case studies, classroom discussion, group work and individual/group presentations. You will be continuously assessed and required to successfully complete a multiple-choice test.

The SEATS course is a 1 day course requiring attendance from 8.30am – 5pm.

Typical fees for open courses are £150 plus VAT per candidate at our Rainham Training Rooms.  However, this can vary for in house courses (dependant on location). As part of the fees each candidate will receive Construction Skills GE700Es – Construction Site Safety – Environment, currently retailing at £32.40, and certification at £37.50. Companies that are eligible for CITB grant refund can claim a grant of £30 for each successful candidate who completes the course.

We run regular open SEATS courses in our Training Centres in Rainham Kent,  or we are happy to travel to your location if suitable facilities are available. We cover the whole of the UK so would be happy to travel to anywhere you need your course.

It pays to be selective when booking training courses because not all training providers are what they appear to be. When booking a SEATS Course you need to feel assured that your training provider is fully accredited to provide that training and is not then going to sub-contract the work. Lighthouse Safety Training are fully accredited by CITB to provide the SEATS course and proof of that accreditation can be seen on our accreditation page.
