CITB Site Safety Plus Course

What is the Site Safety Plus Scheme?

The Site Safety Plus Scheme provides the building, civil engineering and allied industries with a framework for training and career development, for all levels of the workforce.

The Scheme recognises a natural progression, from someone new to the industry through to those responsible for managing construction work. Starting with a health and safety awareness day to prepare for the Health and Safety Test, and progressing to an intermediate level for those about to have supervisory responsibilities. There is then an advanced level for those with management responsibilities.
