IFT Employees Earn CITB SMSTS Certificate
Congratulations to the IFT employees who have gained their CITB SMSTS (Site Managers Safety Training Scheme) Certificate.
This adds to their pool of already qualified supervisors and helps to further ensure compliance of site responsibilities with regards to health, safety, welfare and the environment.
The SMSTS covers all relevant legislation affecting safe working in the building, construction and civil engineering industries. It highlights the need for risk assessment in the workplace, the implementation of the necessary control measures and adequate communication to sustain a health and safety culture within the workforce.
It is endorsed by Build UK as the standard training for all supervisors working on Build UK sites and provides an understanding of health, safety, welfare and environmental issues. It highlights legal responsibilities and the need to promote health and safety to supervise effectively.
