- describe their duties and responsibilities with regards to health, safety, welfare and the environment


There are no prerequisites for this course, however an understanding of construction site safety would be an advantage.

The method of assessment will be by exercises, a case study and an end of course examination. Delegates will receive a CITB Site Safety Plus Certificate valid for 5 years.

Possession of this qualification is listed in the Approved Code of Practice for the Construction (Design and Management) (CDM) Regulations as a demonstration of competence in the role of site manager.
